Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 41:23

_ _ flakes — rather, “dewlaps”; that which falls down (Margin). They are “joined” fast and firm, together, not hanging loose, as in the ox.

_ _ are firm — Umbreit and Maurer, “are spread.”

_ _ in themselves — rather, “upon him.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 41:11-34.
