    Clarke's Commentary on Job 19:7

    I cry out of wrong - I complain of violence and of injustice; but no one comes to my help.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 19:7

    Behold, I cry out of wrong - Margin, or "violence." The Hebrew word (חמס châmâs) means properly violence. The violence referred to is that which was brought upon him by God. It is, indeed, harsh language; but it is not quite sure that he means to complain of God for doing him injustice. God had dealt with him in a severe or violent manner, is the meaning, and he had cried unto him for relief, but had cried in vain.

    No judgment - No justice. The meaning is, that he could obtain justice from no one God would not interpose to remove the calamities which he had brought upon him, and his friends would do no justice to his motives and character.

    Wesley's Notes on Job 19:7

    19:7 Cry - Unto God. Wrong - That I am oppressed by my friends.
