Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 11:18

_ _ The experience of thy life will teach thee there is hope for man in every trial.

_ _ dig — namely, wells; the chief necessity in the East. Better, “though now ashamed (Romans 5:5, opposed to the previous ‘hope’), thou shalt then rest safely” [Gesenius];

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 11:13-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 11:18

Secure — Thy mind shall be quiet and free from terrors, because thou shalt have a firm and well — grounded confidence in God. Dig — Either to fix thy tents, which after the manner of the Arabians were removed from place to place: or to plough the ground, as he had done, Job 1:14, or to make a fence about thy dwelling.
