Job 6:27-28 King James Version (KJV)
27 Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend.

28 Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie.


Job 6:27-28 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
27 Even over the orphan you would cast the lot,
and you would bargain over your friend.
28 Therefore be prepared, turn to me,
and I surely will not lie to your face.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.


27 He is referring to them making profit off of others pain and misfortune. Roll dice refers to gambling. These men Job was talking to were His closest friends.


28 Job was being truthful the entire time; they chose not to believe Him because of the state He was now in.

28 Job was being truthful the entire time; they chose not to believe Him because of the state He was now in.
Actually Clarke, he is expressing his woe over his fair weather friends who see his situation and turn away from doing for him, helping him out...He bemoans the fact that some of his friends have left -him, as though fearing his 'luck' will rub off on them... He gets a little sarcastic near vs 27-28 saying would they would cast dice over an orphan or trade away a friend...That's what they would be doing, in his sight, if they turned their backs on him. All Job was doing is looking to his friends for answers as to the why of his situation. You need to read vs 27-28 in light of the entire chapter, then go into the following chapter as well
