27:2 [As] God liveth, [who] hath taken away my a judgment; and the Almighty, [who] hath vexed my soul;

    (a) He has so sore afflicted me that men cannot judge my uprightness; for they judge only by outward signs.
27:4 b My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.
    (b) However men judge me, yet will I not speak contrary to that which I have said, and so do wickedly in betraying the truth.
27:5 God forbid that I should c justify you: till I die I will not remove mine d integrity from me.
    (c) Which condemns me as a wicked man, because the hand of God is on me.
    (d) I will not confess that God does thus punish me for my sins.
27:6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach [me] so long as I e live.
    (e) Of my life past.
27:8 For what [is] the f hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?
    (f) What advantage has the dissembler to gain, seeing he will lose his own soul?
27:11 I will teach you by the hand of g God: [that] which [is] with the Almighty will I not conceal.
    (g) That is, what God reserves for himself, and of which he gives not knowledge to all.

27:12 Behold, all ye yourselves h have seen [it]; why then are ye thus altogether i vain? h That is, these secret judgments of God and yet do not understand them.
(i) Why do you then maintain this error? 27:13 This [is] the k portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, [which] they shall receive of the Almighty.

    (k) Thus will God order the wicked, and punish him even to his posterity.
27:15 Those that remain of him shall be buried in death: and his widows l shall not weep.
    (l) No one will lament him.
27:18 He buildeth his house as a m moth, and as a booth [that] the keeper maketh.
    (m) Which breeds in another man's possessions or garment, but is soon shaken out.
27:19 The rich man shall lie down, but n he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he [is] not.
    (n) He means that the wicked tyrants will not have a quiet death, nor be buried honourably.
