Job 27:2

_ _ (1 Samuel 20:3).

_ _ taken away ... judgment — words unconsciously foreshadowing Jesus Christ (Isaiah 53:8; Acts 8:33). God will not give Job his right, by declaring his innocence.

_ _ vexedHebrew, “made bitter” (Ruth 1:20).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 27:1-6.

[As] God liveth, [who] hath taken away my (a) judgment; and the Almighty, [who] hath vexed my soul;

(a) He has so sore afflicted me that men cannot judge my uprightness; for they judge only by outward signs.
