Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 1:21

_ _ Naked — (1 Timothy 6:7). “Mother’s womb” is poetically the earth, the universal mother (Ecclesiastes 5:15; Ecclesiastes 12:7; Psalms 139:15). Job herein realizes God’s assertion (Job 1:8) against Satan’s (Job 1:11). Instead of cursing, he blesses the name of Jehovah (Hebrew). The name of Jehovah, is Jehovah Himself, as manifested to us in His attributes (Isaiah 9:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 1:20-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 1:21

Naked — I brought none of these things with me, when I came out of my mother's womb into the world, but I received them from the hand of God, who hath now required his own again. Return thither — I shall be as rich when I die as I was when I was born, and therefore have reason to be contented with my condition, which also is the common lot of all men. Into the lap of our common mother, the earth, as the weary child lays its head in its mother's bosom. We go out of the world naked; the body doth, tho' the sanctified soul goes clothed. (2 Corinthians 5:3.) Death strips us of all our enjoyments: clothing can neither warm nor adorn a dead body. Taken — He hath taken away nothing but his own, and what he so gave that he reserved the supreme disposal of in his own hand. And what is it to me, by what hand he that gives, resumes what he gave?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 1:21

And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return (b) thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; (c) blessed be the name of the LORD.

(b) That is, into the belly of the earth, which is the mother of all.

(c) By this he confesses that God is just and good, although his hand is sore on him.
