CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
They reap every one his corn - Margin, "mingled corn," or "dredge." The word used here (בליל belı̂yl) denotes, properly, "meslin," mixed provender, made up of various kinds of grain, as of barley, vetches, etc., prepared for cattle; see the notes at Isaiah 30:24.

This is descriptive of those who support themselves by robbery.

"They spend the night naked, without clothing, And have no covering against the cold.
"They are insignificant on the surface of the water; Their portion is cursed on the earth. They do not turn toward the vineyards.
