View Job 18 in the note window.

18:2 How long [will it be ere] a ye make an end of words? b mark, and afterwards we will speak.

    (a) Who count yourselves just as (Job 12:4).
    (b) Whom you take to be only beasts, as in (Job 12:7).
18:4 c He teareth himself in his anger: shall the d earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?
    (c) That is, like a madman.
    (d) Shall God change the order of nature for your sake, by dealing with you otherwise than he does with all man?
18:5 Yea, the light of the wicked shall be e put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.
    (e) When the wicked is in his prosperity, then God changes his state: and this is his ordinary working for their sins.
18:8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he f walketh upon a snare.
    (f) Meaning, that the wicked are in continual danger.
18:12 His strength shall be g hungerbitten, and destruction [shall be] ready at his side.
    (g) That which should nourish him will be consumed by famine.
18:13 It shall devour the strength of his skin: [even] the h firstborn of death shall devour his strength.
    (h) That is, some strong and violent death will consume his strength: or as the Hebrew word signifies his members or parts.

18:14 His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the i king of terrors.

    (i) That is, with great fear.
18:15 It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because [it is] none of his: l brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation.
    (l) Though all the world would favour him, yet God would destroy him and his.
18:18 He shall be driven from m light into darkness, and chased out of the world.
    (m) He will fall from prosperity to adversity.
18:20 They that come after [him] shall be astonied at his n day, as they that went before were affrighted.
    (n) When they will see what came to him.
