Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 33:21

_ _ His flesh once prominent “can no more be seen.” His bones once not seen now appear prominent.

_ _ stick out — literally, “are bare.” The Margin, Hebrew (Keri) reading. The text (Chetib) reads it a noun “(are become) bareness.” The Keri was no doubt an explanatory reading of transcribers.
