Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 10:9

_ _ clayJob 10:10 proves that the reference here is, not so much to the perishable nature of the materials, as to their wonderful fashioning by the divine potter.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 10:8-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 10:9

Clay — As a potter makes a vessel of clay; so this may note both the frailty of man's nature, which of itself decays and perishes, and doth not need such violent shocks to overthrow it; and the excellency of the Divine artifice commended from the meanness of the materials; which is an argument why God should not destroy it. Again — I must die by the course of nature, and therefore while I do live, give me some ease and comfort.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 10:9

Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as (l) the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

(l) As brittle as a pot of clay.
