Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

16:19 my witness is in heaven. Job expresses here his faith that somehow he must “have an advocate with the Father” (I John 2:1) who can “plead for” him (Job 16:21), even though Satan, through his “miserable comforters” is bitterly accusing him (note Revelation 12:10). We indeed do have such a heavenly “mediator...the man Christ Jesus” (I Timothy 2:5), but this great truth had not yet been specifically revealed, and Job could only trust in faith that the righteous God he had served faithfully would provide such a “daysman” (Job 9:33; see note).
