New Defender's Study Bible Notes
42:6 abhor myself. Job was the most godly and righteous man in the world at that time, as testified by God Himself (Job 1:8; 2:3).

Daniel, greatly beloved of God, and John, the beloved disciple, had similar reactions when they came into the presence of God (Daniel 10:8,11; Revelation 1:17).
