Job 8:18 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Job 8:19 The heavens shall disclose his iniquity,
And the earth shall rise up against him.
Brimstone shall be rained down upon his dwelling.
Below shall his root be burnt up,
And above shall his branch be cut off.
Counsellors he leadeth captive,
And judges he maketh distracted.
He bewildereth the judgment of the leaders of the people of the land,
And causeth them to wander in a pathless dessert:
They grope about in darkness, even without a glimpse;
Yea, he maketh them to reel like the drunkard.
His roots shall be entangled in a rock;
With a bed of stones shall he grapple;
Utterly shall it drink him up from his place;

LibraryTwo Kinds of Hope
'Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.'--JOB viii. 14. 'And hope maketh not ashamed.'--ROMANS v. 5. These two texts take opposite sides. Bildad was not the wisest of Job's friends, and he gives utterance to solemn commonplaces with partial truth in them. In the rough it is true that the hope of the ungodly perishes, and the limits of the truth are concealed by the splendour of the imagery and the perfection of artistic form in which the well-worn platitude is draped. …
Alexander Maclaren—Expositions of Holy Scripture
The Hebrew Sages and their Proverbs
The eye that now sees me will see me no longer; you will look for me, but I will be no more.
He will never come to his house again; his place will know him no more.
it entwines its roots around a pile of rocks and looks for a place among the stones.
he will perish forever, like his own dung; those who have seen him will say, 'Where is he?'
The eye that saw him will not see him again; his place will look on him no more.
the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
