Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 42:16

_ _ The Septuagint makes Job live a hundred seventy years after his calamity, and two hundred forty in all. This would make him seventy at the time of his calamity, which added to a hundred forty in Hebrew text makes up two hundred ten; a little more than the age (two hundred five) of Terah, father of Abraham, perhaps his contemporary. Man’s length of life gradually shortened, till it reached threescore and ten in Moses’ time (Psalms 90:10).

_ _ sons’ sons — a proof of divine favor (Genesis 50:23; Psalms 128:6; Proverbs 17:6).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 42:10-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 42:16

After this, &c. — Some conjecture, that he was seventy when his trouble came. If so his age was doubled, as his other possessions.
