Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 7:19

_ _ How long (like a jealous keeper) wilt thou never take thine eyes off (so the Hebrew for “depart from”) me? Nor let me alone for a brief respite (literally, “so long as I take to swallow my spittle”), an Arabic proverb, like our, “till I draw my breath.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 7:17-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 7:19

How long — How long will it be ere thou withdraw thy afflicting hand? Swallow — That I may have a breathing time: a proverbial expression.
