Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 21:29

_ _ Job, seeing that the friends will not admit him as an impartial judge, as they consider his calamities prove his guilt, begs them to ask the opinion of travelers (Lamentations 1:12), who have the experience drawn from observation, and who are no way connected with him. Job opposes this to Bildad (Job 8:8) and Zophar (Job 20:4).

_ _ tokens — rather, “intimations” (for example, inscriptions, proverbs, signifying the results of their observation), testimony. Literally, “signs” or proofs in confirmation of the word spoken (Isaiah 7:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 21:27-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 21:29

Them — Any person that passes along the high — way, every one you meet with. It is so vulgar a thing, that no man of common sense is ignorant of it. Tokens — The examples, or evidences, of this truth, which they that go by the way can produce.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 21:29

Have ye (q) not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,

(q) Who through long travailing have experience and tokens of it, that is, that the wicked prosper, and the godly live in affliction.
