    Definitions for Job 31:4

    Doth - To do; to produce; make.

    Clarke's Commentary on Job 31:4

    Doth not he see my ways - Can I suppose that I could screen myself from the eye of God while guilty of such iniquities?

    Barnes' Notes on Job 31:4

    Doth he not see my ways? - This either means that God was a witness of all that he did - his thoughts, words, and deeds, and would punish him if he had given indulgence to improper feelings and thoughts; or that since God saw all his thoughts, he could boldly appeal to him as a witness of his innocence in this matter, and in proof that his life and heart were pure. Rosenmuller adopts the latter interpretation; Herder seems to incline to the former. Umbreit renders it, "God himself must be a witness that I speak the truth." It is not easy to determine which is the true meaning. Either of them will accord well with the scope of the passage.
