John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 21:26

Alike — All these worldly differences are ended by death, and they lie in the grave without any distinction. So that no man can tell who is good, and who is bad by events which befall them in this life. And if one wicked man die in a palace, and another in a dungeon, they will meet in the congregation of the dead and damned; and the worm that dieth not, and the fire that is not quenched will be the same to both: which makes those differences inconsiderable, and not worth perplexing ourselves about.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 21:26

They shall lie down alike in (o) the dust, and the worms shall cover them.

(o) As concerning their bodies: and this he speaks according to the common judgment.
