Job 9:28

_ _ The apodosis to Job 9:27 — “If I say, etc.” “I still am afraid of all my sorrows (returning), for I know that thou wilt (dost) (by removing my sufferings) not hold or declare me innocent. How then can I leave off my heaviness?

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 9:25-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 9:28

Afraid — I find all such endeavours vain; for if my griefs be suspended for a time, yet my fears continue. Will not — I plainly perceive thou, O God, (to whom he makes a sudden address, as he doth also, Job 9:31,) wilt not clear my innocency by removing those afflictions which make them judge me guilty of some great crime. Words proceeding from despair and impatience.
