Job 6 Summary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
Ch. 6 7. Job’s reply to Eliphaz
Job’s reply to the first of his three friends falls into three great sections:
First, Job 6:1-13. He defends against the remonstrances of Eliphaz the bitterness of his complaining and his despair.
Second, Job 6:14-30. He laments with sorrowful disappointment the attitude his friends have taken up towards him.
Third, ch. 7. He falls anew into a bitter lamentation over his sorrowful destiny, and appeals against God’s treatment of him in language much more direct and keen than that used in ch. 3.

The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges is a biblical commentary set published in parts by Cambridge University Press from 1882 onwards. Anglican bishop John Perowne was the general editor. The first section published was written by theologian Thomas Kelly Cheyne and covered the Book of Micah.
Perowne exercised limited editorial control over the writers of individual commentaries: his aim was "to leave each contributor to the unfettered exercise of his own judgment".
