Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 20:26

_ _ All darkness — that is, every calamity that befalls the wicked shall be hid (in store for him) in His (God’s) secret places, or treasures (Jude 1:13; Deuteronomy 32:34).

_ _ not blown — not kindled by man’s hands, but by God’s (Isaiah 30:33; the Septuagint in the Alexandrian Manuscript reads “unquenchable fire,” Matthew 3:12). Tact is shown by the friends in not expressly mentioning, but alluding under color of general cases, to Job’s calamities; here (Job 1:16) Umbreit explains it, wickedness, is a “self-igniting fire”; in it lie the principles of destruction.

_ _ ill ... tabernacle — Every trace of the sinner must be obliterated (Job 18:15).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 20:23-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 20:26

Darkness — All sorts of miseries. Hid — Or, laid up; by God for him. It is reserved and treasured up for him, and shall infallibly overtake him. Secret — In those places where he confidently hopes to hide himself from all evil: even there God shall find him out. Not blown — By man, but kindled by God himself. He thinks by his might and violence to secure himself from men, but God will find him out. With him — With his family, who shall inherit his curse as well as his estate.
