    Clarke's Commentary on Job 6:23

    Or, Deliver me - Did I send to you to come and avenge me of the destroyers of my property, or to rescue my substance out of the hands of my enemies?

    Barnes' Notes on Job 6:23

    Or, Deliver me out of the enemy's hand? - At no time have I called on you to rescue me from a foe.

    Or, Redeem me? - That is, rescue me from the hand of robbers. The meaning is, that he was in no way beholden to them; he had never called on them for assistance; and there was therefore no claim which they could now have to afflict him further by their reflections. There seems to be something peevish in these remarks; and we need not attempt to justify the spirit which dictated them.

    Wesley's Notes on Job 6:23

    6:23 Deliver - By the force of your arms, as Abraham delivered Lot. Redeem - By price or ransom.
