Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 11:17

_ _ age — days of life.

_ _ the noon-day — namely, of thy former prosperity; which, in the poet’s image, had gone on increasing, until it reached its height, as the sun rises higher and higher until it reaches the meridian (Proverbs 4:18).

_ _ shine forth — rather, “though now in darkness, thou shall be as the morning”; or, “thy darkness (if any dark shade should arise on thee, it) shall be as the morning” (only the dullness of morning twilight, not nocturnal darkness) [Umbreit].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 11:13-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 11:17

Shine — Light in scripture commonly signifies prosperity and glory. Thy comfort, like the morning — light shall shine brighter and brighter, until the perfect day.
