Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 41:22

_ _ remaineth — abideth permanently. His chief strength is in the neck.

_ _ sorrow — anxiety or dismay personified.

_ _ is turned into joy — rather, “danceth,” “exulteth”; wherever he goes, he spreads terror “before him.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 41:11-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 41:22

And sorrow — Sorrow is his companion and harbinger, which attends upon him wheresoever he goes. So anger and fear are said by the poets to accompany the God of war.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 41:22

In his neck remaineth strength, and (h) sorrow is turned into joy before him.

(h) Nothing is painful or hard for him.
