Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 28:7

_ _ fowl — rather, “ravenous bird,” or “eagle,” which is the most sharp-sighted of birds (Isaiah 46:11). A vulture will spy a carcass at an amazing distance. The miner penetrates the earth by a way unseen by birds of keenest sight.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 28:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 28:7

A path — In the bowels of the earth. Vulture's eye — Whose eye is very quick, and strong, and searcheth all places for its prey.
