Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 5:23

_ _ in league with the stones of the field — They shall not hurt the fertility of thy soil; nor the wild beasts thy fruits; spoken in Arabia-Deserta, where stones abounded. Arabia, derived from Arabah — a desert plain. The first clause of this verse answers to the first clause of Job 5:22; and the last of this verse to the last of that verse. The full realization of this is yet future (Isaiah 65:23, Isaiah 65:25; Hosea 2:18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 5:17-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 5:23

League — Thou shalt be free from annoyance thereby, as if they had made an inviolable league with thee. This is a bold metaphor, but such as are frequent both in scripture and other authors. This is an addition to the former privilege; they shall not hurt thee, Job 5:22, nay, they shall befriend thee, as being at peace with thee. Our covenant with God is a covenant with all the creatures, that they shall do us no hurt, but serve and be ready to do us good.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 5:23

For thou (u) shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee.

(u) When we are in God's favour, all creatures will serve us.
