New Defender's Study Bible Notes
13:10 reprove you. God eventually did severely reprove these three “physicians of no value” (Job 13:4) for their undeserved condemnation of their erstwhile friend Job. See Job 42:7-9.
13:15 slay me. Although Job longs to understand why God is allowing him to suffer so, yet he will still retain his faith, even unto death.
13:16 my salvation. Job recognizes that salvation comes only through trust in God, not man.
13:23 know my transgression. Again Job pleads for his “friends” to identify the sins of which they accuse him. He would gladly repent if he knew.
