Job 41:26

_ _ cannot hold — on his hard skin.

_ _ habergeon — coat of mail; avail must be taken by zeugma out of “hold,” as the verb in the second clause: “hold” cannot apply to the “coat of mail.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 41:11-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 41:26

Hold — Heb. cannot stand, cannot endure the stroke, but will be broken by it. The crocodile's skin, no sword, nor dart, nor musquet bullet can pierce.
