Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 19:22

_ _ as God — has persecuted me. Prefiguring Jesus Christ (Psalms 69:26). That God afflicts is no reason that man is to add to a sufferer’s affliction (Zechariah 1:15).

_ _ satisfied with my flesh — It is not enough that God afflicts my flesh literally (Job 19:20), but you must “eat my flesh” metaphorically (Psalms 27:2); that is, utter the worst calumnies, as the phrase often means in Arabic.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 19:8-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 19:22

As God — As if you had the same infinite knowledge which God hath, whereby you can search my heart and know my hypocrisy, and the same sovereign authority to say and do what you please with me. Not satisfied — Are like wolves or lions that are not contented with devouring the flesh of their prey, but also break their bones.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 19:22

Why do ye persecute me as (n) God, and are not satisfied with my (o) flesh?

(n) Is it not enough that God punishes me, unless you by reproaching increase my sorrow?

(o) To see my body punished, unless you trouble my mind?
