7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.
7 Lacking clothes, they spend the night naked; they have nothing to cover themselves in the cold.
7 They lie all night naked, without clothing, and have no covering in the cold.
7 Homeless, they shiver through cold nights on the street; they've no place to lay their heads.
7 They spend the night naked, without clothing, And have no covering in the cold.
7 All night they lie naked in the cold, without clothing or covering.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 24:7
Commentary on Job 24:1-12
(Read Job 24:1-12)
Job discourses further about the prosperity of the wicked. That many live at ease who are ungodly and profane, he had showed, ch. xxi. Here he shows that many who live in open defiance of all the laws of justice, succeed in wicked practices; and we do not see them reckoned with in this world. He notices those that do wrong under pretence of law and authority; and robbers, those that do wrong by force. He says, "God layeth not folly to them;" that is, he does not at once send his judgments, nor make them examples, and so manifest their folly to all the world. But he that gets riches, and not by right, at his end shall be a fool, Jeremiah 17:11.
