Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 14:12

_ _ heavens be no more — This only implies that Job had no hope of living again in the present order of the world, not that he had no hope of life again in a new order of things. Psalms 102:26 proves that early under the Old Testament the dissolution of the present earth and heavens was expected (compare Genesis 8:22). Enoch before Job had implied that the “saints shall live again” (Jude 1:14; Hebrews 11:13-16). Even if, by this phrase, Job meant “never” (Psalms 89:29) in his gloomier state of feelings, yet the Holy Ghost has made him unconsciously (1 Peter 1:11, 1 Peter 1:12) use language expressing the truth, that the resurrection is to be preceded by the dissolution of the heavens. In Job 14:13-15 he plainly passes to brighter hopes of a world to come.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 14:7-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 14:12

Lieth — In his bed, the grave. 'Till — Until the time of the general resurrection, when these visible heavens shall pass away.
