Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 20:25

_ _ It is drawn — Rather, “He (God) draweth (the sword, Joshua 5:13) and (no sooner has He done so, than) it cometh out of (that is, passes right through) the (sinner’s) body” (Deuteronomy 32:41, Deuteronomy 32:42; Ezekiel 21:9, Ezekiel 21:10). The glittering sword is a happy image for lightning.

_ _ gall — that is, his life (Job 16:13). “Inflicts a deadly wound.”

_ _ terrors — Zophar repeats Bildad’s words (Job 17:11; Psalms 88:16; Psalms 55:4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 20:25

It — The arrow, which had entered into his body, and now was drawn out of it either by himself or some other person; having in general said, that it came out of his body, he determines also the part of the body, the gall; which shews that the wound was both deep and deadly. Terrors — The terrors of death; because he perceived his wound was incurable.
