Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 6:9

_ _ destroy — literally, “grind” or “crush” (Isaiah 3:15).

_ _ let loose his hand — God had put forth His hand only so far as to wound the surface of Job’s flesh (Job 1:12; Job 2:6); he wishes that hand to be let loose, so as to wound deeply and vitally.

_ _ cut me off — metaphor from a weaver cutting off the web, when finished, from the thrum fastening it to the loom (Isaiah 38:12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 6:8-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 6:9

Destroy — To end my days and calamities together.
