Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Job 15:27


15:27 Because - This is mentioned as the reason of his insolent carriage towards God, because he was fat, rich, potent, and successful, as that expression signifies, #Deut 32:15 Psal 78:31 Jer 46:21|. His great prosperity made him proud and secure, and regardless of God and men. Fat - His only care is to pamper himself.
