Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 15:34

_ _ Rather, The binding together of the hypocrites (wicked) shall be fruitless [Umbreit].

_ _ tabernacles of bribery — namely, dwellings of unjust judges, often reprobated in the Old Testament (Isaiah 1:23). The “fire of God” that consumed Job’s possessions (Job 1:16) Eliphaz insinuates may have been on account of Job’s bribery as an Arab sheik or emir.
