Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 20:22

_ _ shall be — rather, “he is (feeleth) straitened.” The next clause explains in what respect.

_ _ wicked — Rather, “the whole hand of the miserable (whom he had oppressed) cometh upon him”; namely, the sense of his having oppressed the poor, now in turn comes with all its power (hand) on him. This caused his “straitened” feeling even in prosperity.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 20:10-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 20:22

In, &c. — In the height of prosperity he shall be distressed. Hand, &c. — So his wickedness shall be punished by those as wicked as himself.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 20:22

In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits: every hand (l) of the wicked shall come upon him.

(l) The wicked will never be in rest: for one wicked man will seek to destroy another.
