Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 6:29

_ _ Return — rather, “retract” your charges:

_ _ let it not be iniquity — that is, (retract) that injustice may not be done me. Yea retract, “my righteousness is in it”; that is, my right is involved in this matter.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 6:22-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 6:29

Return — Turn from your former judgment. Iniquity — Or, there shall be no iniquity, in my words. Righteousness — In this cause or matter between you and me; and you will find the right to be on my side.
