Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 19:26

_ _ Rather, though after my skin (is no more) this (body) is destroyed (“body” being omitted, because it was so wasted as not to deserve the name), yet from my flesh (from my renewed body, as the starting-point of vision, Song of Songs 2:9, “looking out from the windows”) “shall I see God.” Next clause [Job 19:27] proves bodily vision is meant, for it specifies “mine eyes” [Rosenmuller, 2d ed.]. The Hebrew opposes “in my flesh.” The “skin” was the first destroyed by elephantiasis, then the “body.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 19:23-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 19:26

Though — Though my skin is now in a great measure consumed, and the rest of it, together with this body, shall be devoured by the worms, which may seem to make my case desperate. Flesh — Or with bodily eyes; my flesh or body being raised from the grave, and re — united to my soul. God — The same whom he called his Redeemer, Job 19:25, who having taken flesh, and appearing in his flesh or body with and for Job upon the earth, might well be seen with his bodily eyes. Nor is this understood of a simple seeing of him; but of that glorious and beatifying vision of God, which is promised to all God's people.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 19:26

And [though] after my skin [worms] destroy this [body], yet (r) in my flesh shall I see God:

(r) In this Job declares plainly that he had a full hope, that both the soul and body would enjoy the presence of God in the last resurrection.
