Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 38:41

_ _ Luke 12:24. Transition from the noble lioness to the croaking raven. Though man dislikes it, as of ill omen, God cares for it, as for all His creatures.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 38:41

Raven — Having mentioned the noblest of brute creatures, he now mentions one of the most contemptible; to shew the care of God's providence over all creatures, both great and small. Their young ones are so soon forsaken by their dams, that if God did not provide for them in a more than ordinary manner, they would be starved to death. And will he that provides for the young ravens, fail to provide for his own children.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 38:41

Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones (b) cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

(b) Read (Psalms 147:9).
