These are my thoughts, please share yours.

12 It was thought that sea monster were kept chained up to prevent them from taking down all the boats and they were blamed when ships sunk. Job is telling you don’t have to guard me, keep an eye on me; Job was losing patience with his so called friends.

13 The only time Job may have been at some peace at any rest was when he slept, although with his conditions his sleep would not be as easy, Job most likely was restless.
