    Barnes' Notes on Job 16:11

    God hath delivered me - Margin "shut me up." The meaning is, that God had committed him to their hands as a prisoner or captive. They had power over him to do as they pleased.

    To the ungodly - Into the hands of wicked people - meaning undoubtedly his professed friends.

    And turned me over - The word used here (from ירט yârat) means to throw head long, to precipitate, to cast down. Here it means, "he has thrown me headlong into the hands of the wicked."

    Wesley's Notes on Job 16:11
