Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 33:15

_ _ slumberings — light is opposed to “deep sleep.” Elihu has in view Eliphaz (Job 4:13), and also Job himself (Job 7:14). “Dreams” in sleep, and “visions” of actual apparitions, were among the ways whereby God then spake to man (Genesis 20:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
