    Clarke's Commentary on Job 16:17

    Not for any injustice - I must assert, even with my last breath, that the charges of my friends against me are groundless. I am afflicted unto death, but not on account of my iniquities.

    Also my prayer is pure - I am no hypocrite, God knoweth.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 16:17

    Not for any injustice ... - Still claiming that he does not deserve his sorrows, and that these calamities had not come upon him on account of any enormous sins, as his friends believed.

    My prayer is pure - My devotion; my worship of God is not hypocritical - as my friends maintain.
