Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 18:8

_ _ he walketh upon — rather, “he lets himself go into the net” [Umbreit]. If the English Version be retained, then understand “snare” to be the pitfall, covered over with branches and earth, which when walked upon give way (Psalms 9:15; Psalms 35:8).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 18:5-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 18:8

Feet — By his own designs and actions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
