Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 18:14

_ _ confidence — all that the father trusted in for domestic happiness, children, fortune, etc., referring to Job’s losses.

_ _ rooted out — suddenly torn away, it shall bring — that is, he shall be brought; or, as Umbreit better has, “Thou (God) shalt bring him slowly.” The Hebrew expresses, “to stride slowly and solemnly.” The godless has a fearful death for long before his eyes, and is at last taken by it. Alluding to Job’s case. The King of terrors, not like the heathen Pluto, the tabled ruler of the dead, but Death, with all its terrors to the ungodly, personified.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 18:11-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 18:14

Confidence — All the matter of his confidence, his riches, and children. Terrors — To death, which even Aristotle called, The most terrible of all terribles. And this it will do, either because it will expose him to his enemies, who will kill him; or because the sense of his disappointments, and losses, and dangers, will break his heart.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
