Job 3:5 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
12 And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and threw dust upon their heads toward heaven.
They saw a form which seemed to be Job, but in which they were not able to recognise him. Then they weep and rend their outer garments, and catch up dust to throw up towards heaven (1 Samuel 4:12), that it may fall again upon their heads. The casting up of dust on high is the outwards sign of intense suffering, and, as von Gerlach rightly remarks, of that which causes him to cry to heaven.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
stain it. or, challenge it. let a cloud.
let the blackness. or, let them terrify it, as those who have a bitter day.
Let that day be darkness! May God above not seek it, nor light shine upon it.
That night--let thick darkness seize it! Let it not rejoice among the days of the year; let it not come into the number of the months.
yet you have broken us in the place of jackals and covered us with the shadow of death.
Give glory to the LORD your God before he brings darkness, before your feet stumble on the twilight mountains, and while you look for light he turns it into gloom and makes it deep darkness.
