Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 3:25

_ _ the thing which I ... feared is come upon me — In the beginning of his trials, when he heard of the loss of one blessing, he feared the loss of another; and when he heard of the loss of that, he feared the loss of a third.

_ _ that which I was afraid of is come unto me — namely, the ill opinion of his friends, as though he were a hypocrite on account of his trials.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 3:20-26.

Feared — Even in the time of my prosperity, I was full of fears, considering the variety of God's providences, the changeableness of this vain world, God's justice, and the sinfulness of all mankind. And these fears of mine, were not in vain, but are justified by my present calamities.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
