Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 19:27

_ _ for myself — for my advantage, as my friend.

_ _ not another — Mine eyes shall behold Him, but no longer as one estranged from me, as now [Bengel].

_ _ though — better omitted.

_ _ my reins — inward recesses of the heart.

_ _ be consumed within me — that is, pine with longing desire for that day (Psalms 84:2; Psalms 119:81). The Gentiles had but few revealed promises: how gracious that the few should have been so explicit (compare Numbers 24:17; Matthew 2:2).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 19:23-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 19:27

See — No wonder he repeats it again, because the meditation of it was most sweet to him. For — For my own benefit and comfort. Another — For me or in my stead. I shall not see God by another's eyes, but by my own, and by these self — same eyes, in this same body which now I have. Though — This I do confidently expect, tho' the grave and the worms will consume my whole body.
