Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 19:16

_ _ servant — born in my house (as distinguished from those sojourning in it), and so altogether belonging to the family. Yet even he disobeys my call.

_ _ mouth — that is, “calling aloud”; formerly a nod was enough. Now I no longer look for obedience, I try entreaty.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 19:8-22.
