Job 42:15

_ _ inheritance among ... brethren — An unusual favor in the East to daughters, who, in the Jewish law, only inherited, if there were no sons (Numbers 27:8), a proof of wealth and unanimity.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 42:10-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 42:15

So fair — In the Old Testament we often find women praised for their beauty, but never in the New, because the beauty of holiness is brought to a much clearer light by the gospel.
