Job 6:28

_ _ be content — rather, “be pleased to” — look. Since you have so falsely judged my words, look upon me, that is, upon my countenance: for (it is evident before your faces) if I lie; my countenance will betray me, if I be the hypocrite that you suppose.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 6:22-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Look — Consider my cause better than you have done, that you may give a more righteous judgment. Evident — You will plainly discover it.

Job 6:28

Now therefore be content, (r) look upon me; for [it is] evident unto you if I lie.
