Job 39:4

_ _ are in good liking — in good condition, grow up strong.

_ _ with corn — rather, “in the field,” without man’s care.

_ _ return not — being able to provide for themselves.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 39:1-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 39:4

Young ones — Notwithstanding their great weakness caused by their hard entrance into the world. Grow up — As with corn, that is, as if they were fed with corn. Go forth — Finding sufficient provisions abroad by the care of God's providence.
