Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 15:22

_ _ darkness — namely, danger or calamity. Glancing at Job, who despaired of restoration: in contrast to good men when in darkness (Micah 7:8, Micah 7:9).

_ _ waited for of — that is, He is destined for the sword [Gesenius]. Rather (in the night of danger), “he looks anxiously towards the sword,” as if every sword was drawn against him [Umbreit].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 15:17-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 15:22

Believeth not — When he falls into trouble, he despairs of deliverance, by reason of his guilty conscience. Waited for — Besides the calamity which is upon him, he is in constant expectation of greater; the sword is used for any grievous affliction.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
