New International Version
You will be protected from the lash of the tongue, and need not fear when destruction comes.
King James Bible
Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh.
Darby Bible Translation
Thou shalt be hidden from the scourge of the tongue; and thou shalt not be afraid of destruction when it cometh.
World English Bible
You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes.
Young's Literal Translation
When the tongue scourgeth thou art hid, And thou art not afraid of destruction, When it cometh.
Job 5:21 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue - The Targum refers this to the incantations of Balaam: "From injury by the tongue of Balaam thou shalt be hidden in the clouds; and thou shalt not fear from the blasting of the Midianites, when it shall come." Perhaps no evil is more dreadful than the scourge of the tongue: evil-speaking, detraction, backbiting, calumny, slander, tale-bearing, whispering, and scandalizing, are some of the terms which we use when endeavoring to express the baleful influence and effects of that member, which is a world of fire, kindled from the nethermost hell. The Scripture abounds with invectives and execrations against it. See Psalm 31:20; Psalm 52:2-4; Proverbs 12:18; Proverbs 14:3; James 3:1-8.
Neither shalt thou be afraid - "Thou shouldst have such strong confidence in God, that even in the presence of destruction thou shouldst not fear death," the God of life and power being with thee.
