Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 30:31

_ _ organ — rather, “pipe” (Job 21:12). “My joy is turned into the voice of weeping” (Lamentations 5:15). These instruments are properly appropriated to joy (Isaiah 30:29, Isaiah 30:32), which makes their use now in sorrow the sadder by contrast.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 30:15-31.
