Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 10:16

_ _ increaseth — rather, “(if) I lift up (my head) Thou wouldest hunt me,” etc. [Umbreit].

_ _ and again — as if a lion should not kill his prey at once, but come back and torture it again.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 10:14-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 10:16

Lion — Which hunteth after his prey with great eagerness, and when he overtakes it, falls upon it with great fury. Returnest — The lion tears its prey speedily, and so ends its torments; but thou renewest my calamities again and again, and makest my plagues wonderful both for kind and extremity, and continuance.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 10:16

For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself (q) marvellous upon me.

(q) Job being sore assaulted in this battle between the flesh and the spirit, breaks out into these affections, wishing rather for short days than long pain.
