John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I,.... Or shows thee to be a wicked person, guilty of things charged upon thee; out of thine own mouth thou art convicted, there needs no other evidence to be brought against thee, that is sufficient: and thou savest me, and any other, the trouble of passing the sentence of condemnation upon thee; thou hast done it thyself, thine own mouth is judge and jury, and brings in the verdict, and pronounces it, as well as is the witness, as follows, and is instead of a thousand witnesses, Job 9:20;

yea, thine own lips testify against thee; and therefore there were no need of producing any other testimony; what he had said showed that his talk was vain and unprofitable, unbecoming a wise man, and tending to make null and void the fear of God among men, to discourage all religious exercises, and particularly prayer before God.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Job 15:6 Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee.

Ver. 6. Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I] Yes, you, and none but you. Job’s heart condemneth him not (and thence his confidence toward God, 1 John 3:21), much less his mouth, had not his words been misconstrued. But as charity maketh a good sense of doubtful speeches and passages, so prejudice and displeasure takes all things (though well meant) at the worst, and as logicians do, Sequitur partem deteriorem. Eliphaz diggeth up evil, Proverbs 16:27, and is like Achilles, of whom Homer saith, that he was a great fault finder (Iliad, xi. 653).

Dεινος ανηρ, ταχα κεν και αναιτιον αιτιοωτο.

Yea, thine own lips testify against thee] Heb. Answer against thee. For witnesses ordinarily answer to interrogatories. So the pride of Israel (breaking forth as a great master pockmark in his forehead) testified to his face, Hosea 5:5, and the heretic is contemned of himself, Titus 3:11. Virtually he doth so, though not formally. But Job did neither, good Eliphaz.

Mark Dunagan Commentary on the Bible

"Your own mouth condemns you": Eliphaz argues that Job"s self-defense is sufficient to condemn him before God; his own protestation of innocence is enough to declare him guilty, compare with 9:20. "The elder of the trio sought to free himself from hurling accusations at Job by observing that Job"s own words condemned him" (Zuck p. 70). "And not I": And yet after saying this, he will continue to hurl accusations at Job.
