Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 40:20

_ _ The mountain is not his usual haunt. Bochart says it is sometimes found there (?).

_ _ beasts ... play — a graphic trait: though armed with such teeth, he lets the beasts play near him unhurt, for his food is grass.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 40:15-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 40:20

Mountains — Though he lives most in the water, yet he often fetches his food from the land, and from the mountains or hills, which are nigh the river Nile. Play — They not only feed securely, but sport themselves by him, being taught by experience that he is gentle and harmless.
