13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
13 "There are those who rebel against the light, who do not know its ways or stay in its paths.
13 "There are those who rebel against the light, who are not acquainted with its ways, and do not stay in its paths.
13 "Then there are those who avoid light at all costs, who scorn the light-filled path.
13 "There are those who rebel against the light; They do not know its ways Nor abide in its paths.
13 "Wicked people rebel against the light. They refuse to acknowledge its ways or stay in its paths.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 24:13
Commentary on Job 24:13-17
(Read Job 24:13-17)
See what care and pains wicked men take to compass their wicked designs; let it shame our negligence and slothfulness in doing good. See what pains those take, who make provision for the flesh to fulfil the lusts of it: pains to compass, and then to hide that which will end in death and hell at last. Less pains would mortify and crucify the flesh, and be life and heaven at last. Shame came in with sin, and everlasting shame is at the end of it. See the misery of sinners; they are exposed to continual frights: yet see their folly; they are afraid of coming under the eye of men, but have no dread of God's eye, which is always upon them: they are not afraid of doing things which they are afraid of being known to do.
