What does Job 38:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Job 38:15

And from the wicked their light is withholden
Whose light is darkness, and whose day is the night, of which they are deprived when the morning light breaks forth; see ( Job 24:17 ) ; it may be figuratively understood of the light of prosperity being removed from them, or the light of life, when they shall be sent into utter darkness;

and the high arm shall be broken;
their power weakened and made useless; even the power of such wicked men who have had a large share of it, and have used it in a tyrannical manner; and especially this will be their case at death; see ( Isaiah 14:10 Isaiah 14:12 ) .
