Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 12:19

_ _ princes — rather, “priests,” as the Hebrew is rendered (Psalms 99:6). Even the sacred ministers of religion are not exempt from reverses and captivity.

_ _ the mighty — rather, “the firm-rooted in power”; the Arabic root expresses ever-flowing water [Umbreit].
