Bible Commentary for Job 21:18

Wesley's Notes for Job 21:18


21:16 Lo - But wicked men have no reason to reject God, because of their prosperity, for their wealth, is not in their hand; neither obtained, nor kept by their own might, but only by God's power and favour. Therefore I am far from approving their opinion, or following their course.

21:17 Often - I grant that this happens often though not constantly, as you affirm. Lamp - Their glory and outward happiness.

21:19 Layeth up - In his treasures, #Rom 2:5|. Iniquity - The punishment of his iniquity; he will punish him both in his person and in his posterity.

21:20 See - He shall be destroyed; as to see death, is to die.
