Job 6:30

_ _ Will you say that my guilt lies in the organ of speech, and will you call it to account? or, Is it that my taste (palate) or discernment is not capable to form a judgment of perverse things? Is it thus you will explain the fact of my having no consciousness of guilt? [Umbreit].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 6:22-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 6:30

Is there — Consider if there be any untruth or iniquity in what I have already said, or shall farther speak. Taste — My judgment, which judgeth of words and actions, as the palate doth of meats.
