Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 21:19

_ _ Equally questionable is the friends’ assertion that if the godless himself is not punished, the children are (Job 18:19; Job 20:10); and that God rewardeth him here for his iniquity, and that he shall know it to his cost. So “know” (Hosea 9:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 21:17-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 21:19

Layeth up — In his treasures, Romans 2:5. Iniquity — The punishment of his iniquity; he will punish him both in his person and in his posterity.
