    Barnes' Notes on Job 20:13

    Though he spare it - That is, though he retains it long in his mouth, that he may enjoy it the more.

    And forsake it not - Retains it as long as he can.

    But keep it still within his mouth - Margin, as in Hebrew "in the midst of his palate." He seeks to enjoy it as long as possible.
