    Barnes' Notes on Job 30:30

    My skin is black upon me; - see Job 30:28. It had become black by the force of the disease.

    My bones are burnt with heat - The bones, in the Scriptures, are often represented as the seat of pain. The disease of Job seems to have pervaded the whole body. If it was the elephantiasis (see the notes at Job 2:7-8), these effects would be naturally produced.
