Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jonah 4:7

_ _ a worm — of a particular kind, deadly to the ricinus. A small worm at the root destroys a large gourd. So it takes but little to make our creature comforts wither. It should silence discontent to remember, that when our gourd is gone, our God is not gone.

_ _ the next day — after Jonah was so “exceeding glad” (compare Psalms 80:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jonah 4:5-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jonah 4:7

Prepared — By the same power which caused the gourd suddenly to spring, and spread itself. It smote — Which early next morning, bit the root, so that the whole gourd withered.
