    Clarke's Commentary on Job 6:4

    Job 16:13 For examine, I beseech thee, the past age;

    Yea, gird thyself to the study of its forefathers;

    Shall not they instruct thee, counsel thee,

    And swell forth the sayings of their wisdom?

    He shall not behold the branches of the river,

    Brooks of honey and butter -

    When my path flowed with butter,

    And the rock poured out for me rivers of oil.

    Though his face be enveloped with fatness,

    And heaped up with fatness on his loins.

    The arrows of the Almighty are within me;

    Their poison drinketh up my spirit:

    The terrors of God set themselves in array against me;

    His arrows fly around me;

    Barnes' Notes on Job 6:4

    To the shield:

    He runneth upon him with outstretched neck,

    With the thick bosses of his shields. Job 15:26.

    To the methods of attack, and the capture of a walled town:

    He set me up for a mark,

    His archers came around me;

    He transfixed my reins, and did not spare;

    My gall hath he poured out upon the ground.

    He breaketh me with breach upon breach;

    He rusheth upon me like a mighty man. Job 16:12-14.

    To the iron weapon and the bow of brass:

    He shall flee from the iron weapon,

    But the bow of brass shall pierce him through.
