Bible Commentary for Job 15:30

Wesley's Notes for Job 15:30


15:30 Depart - His misery shall have no end. Flame - God's anger and judgment upon him. Branches - His wealth, and power, and glory, wherewith he was encompassed, as trees are with their branches. His mouth - And this expression intimates, with how much ease God subdueth his enemies: his word, his blast; one act of his will is sufficient. Go - Heb. go back: that is, run away from God faster than he ran upon him, ver.#26|. So it is a continuation of the former metaphor of a conflict between two persons.
