6 Though the pride of the godless person reaches to the heavens and his head touches the clouds,

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 20:6

Commentary on Job 20:1-9

(Read Job 20:1-9)

Zophar's discourse is upon the certain misery of the wicked. The triumph of the wicked and the joy of the hypocrite are fleeting. The pleasures and gains of sin bring disease and pain; they end in remorse, anguish, and ruin. Dissembled piety is double iniquity, and the ruin that attends it will be accordingly.
