Job 38:13

_ _ take hold of the ends, etc. — spread itself over the earth to its utmost bounds in a moment.

_ _ wicked — who hate the light, and do their evil works in the dark (Job 24:13).

_ _ shaken out of it — The corners (Hebrew, “wings” or “skirts”) of it, as of a garment, are taken hold of by the dayspring, so as to shake off the wicked.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 38:12-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 38:13

That — That this morning light should in a moment spread itself, from one end of the hemisphere to the other. Shaken — From the face of the earth. And this effect the morning — light hath upon the wicked, because it discovers them, whereas darkness hides them; and because it brings them to condign punishment, the morning being the usual time for executing judgment.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 38:13

That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be (k) shaken out of it?

(k) Who having in the night been given to wickedness, cannot abide the light, but hide themselves.
