14 Again and again he bursts upon me; he rushes at me like a warrior.
14 He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant.
14 He breaks me with breach upon breach; he runs upon me like a warrior.
14 He burst in on me, onslaught after onslaught, charging me like a mad bull.
14 He breaks me with wound upon wound; He runs at me like a warrior.
14 Again and again he smashes against me, charging at me like a warrior.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 16:14
Commentary on Job 16:6-16
(Read Job 16:6-16)
Here is a doleful representation of Job's grievances. What reason we have to bless God, that we are not making such complaints! Even good men, when in great troubles, have much ado not to entertain hard thoughts of God. Eliphaz had represented Job as unhumbled under his affliction: No, says Job, I know better things; the dust is now the fittest place for me. In this he reminds us of Christ, who was a man of sorrows, and pronounced those blessed that mourn, for they shall be comforted.
