    King James Bible - Job 16:18

    O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place.

    World English Bible

    "Earth, don't
    cover my blood. Let my cry have no place to rest.

    Douay-Rheims - Job 16:18

    These things have I suffered without the iniquity of my hand, when I offered pure prayers to God.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    O earth,
    cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place.

    Original Hebrew

    ארץ
    776 אל 408תכסי 3680דמי 1818ואל 408יהי 1961מקום 4725לזעקתי׃ 2201

    Jer 22:29

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:18

    ¬°Oh tierra! No cubras mi sangre, y no haya lugar donde se esconda mi clamor.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 16:18

    Verse 18. O earth, cover not thou my blood ] This is evidently an allusion to the murder of Hebel, and the verse has been understood in two different ways: 1. Job here calls for justice against his destroyers. His blood is his life, which he considers as taken away by violence, and therefore calls for vengeance. Let my blood cry against my murderers, as the blood of Hebel cried against Cain. My innocent life is taken away by violence, as his innocent life was; as therefore the earth was not permitted to cover his blood, so that his murderer should be concealed, let my death be avenged in the same way. 2. It has been supposed that the passage means that Job considered himself accused of shedding innocent blood; and, conscious of his own perfect innocence, he prays that the earth may not cover any blood shed by him. Thus Mr. Scott: - "O earth, the blood accusing me reveal; Its piercing voice in no recess conceal." And this notion is followed by Mr. Good. But, with all deference to these learned men, l do not see that this meaning can be supported by the Hebrew text; nor was the passage so understood by any of the ancient versions. I therefore prefer the first sense, which is sufficiently natural, and quite in the manner of Job in his impassioned querulousness.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-22 -
    Job's condition was very deplorable; but he had the testimony of his conscience for him, that he never allowed himself in any gross sin. N one was ever more ready to acknowledge sins of infirmity. Eliphaz ha charged him with hypocrisy in religion, but he specifies prayer, the great act of religion, and professes that in this he was pure, thoug not from all infirmity. He had a God to go to, who he doubted not too full notice of all his sorrows. Those who pour out tears before God though they cannot plead for themselves, by reason of their defects have a Friend to plead for them, even the Son of man, and on him we must ground all our hopes of acceptance with God. To die, is to go the way whence we shall not return. We must all of us, very certainly, an very shortly, go this journey. Should not then the Saviour be preciou to our souls? And ought we not to be ready to obey and to suffer for his sake? If our consciences are sprinkled with his atoning blood, an testify that we are not living in sin or hypocrisy, when we go the way whence we shall not return, it will be a release from prison, and a entrance into everlasting happiness __________________________________________________________________
