Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 41:34

_ _ beholdeth — as their superior.

_ _ children of pride — the proud and fierce beasts. So Job 28:8; Hebrew, “sons of pride.” To humble the pride of man and to teach implicit submission, is the aim of Jehovah’s speech and of the book; therefore with this as to leviathan, the type of God in His lordship over creation, He closes.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 41:11-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 41:34

King, &c. — He can tame both the behemoth and leviathan, as strong and stout — hearted as they are. This discourse concerning them was brought in, to prove that it is God only, who can look upon proud men and abase them, bring them low, and hide them in the dust, he it is that beholdeth all high things, and wherein men dealt proudly, he is above them. He is king over all the children of pride, brutal or rational, and makes them either bend or break before him.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 41:34

He beholdeth (m) all high [things]: he [is] a king over all the children of pride.
