They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame
The Chaldeans and Sabeans, who had plundered him of his substance, when they should see him restored to his former prosperity, beyond all hope and expectation, and themselves liable to his resentment, and under the displeasure of Providence: the phrase denotes utter confusion, and such as is visible as the clothes upon a man's back; see ( Psalms 132:18 ) ;
and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to naught;
or, "shall not be" F20; shall be no more; be utterly destroyed, and no more built up again; even such dwelling places they fancied would continue for ever, and perpetuate their names to the latest posterity; but the curse of God being in them, and upon them, they come to nothing, and are no more: thus ends Bildad's speech; Job's answer to it follows.
F20 (wnnya) "non erit", Pagninus, Mercerus, Drusius, Michaelis.
