Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 5:19

_ _ in six ... yea, in seven — (Proverbs 6:16; Amos 1:3). The Hebrew idiom fixes on a certain number (here “six”), in order to call attention as to a thing of importance; then increases the force by adding, with a “yea, nay seven,” the next higher number; here “seven,” the sacred and perfect number. In all possible troubles; not merely in the precise number “seven.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 5:17-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 5:19

Deliver — If thou seekest to him by prayer and repentance. Here he applies himself to Job directly. Six — Manifold and repeated. Touch — So as to destroy thee. Thou shalt have a good issue out of all thy troubles, though they are both great and many.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 5:19

He shall deliver thee in (s) six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.

(s) He will send trouble after trouble that his children may not for one time, but continually trust in him: but they sill have a comfortable issue, even in the greatest and the last, which is here called the seventh.
