    King James Bible - Job 17:16

    They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

    World English Bible

    Shall it go down with me to the gates of Sheol, or descend together into the
    dust?"

    Douay-Rheims - Job 17:16

    All that I have shall go down into the deepest pit: thinkest thou that there at least I shall have rest?

    Webster's Bible Translation

    They shall go down to the
    bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

    Original Hebrew

    בדי

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:16

    A los rincones de la huesa descenderán, y juntamente descansarán en el polvo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 17:16

    Verse 16. They shall go down to the bars of the pit ] All that I have must descend into the depths of the grave. Thither are we all going; and there alone can I rest. ydb baddey, which we translate bars, signifies also branches, distended limbs, or claws, and may here refer either to a personification of the grave, a monster who seizes on human bodies, and keeps them fast in his deadly gripe; or to the different branching-off-alleys in subterranean cemeteries, or catacombs, in which niches are made for the reception of different bodies.

    When our rest together is in the dust. ] That is, according to some critics, My hope and myself shall descend together into the grave. It shall never be realized, for the time of my departure is at hand. IN those times what deep shades hung on the state of man after death, and on every thing pertaining to the eternal world! Perplexity and uncertainty were the consequences; and a corresponding gloom often dwelt on the minds of even the best of the Old Testament believers. Job's friends, though learned in all the wisdom of the Arabians, connected with the advantages derivable from the Mosaic writings, and perhaps those of the earlier prophets, had little clear or distinct in their minds relative to all subjects post mortem, or of the invisible world. Job himself, though sometimes strongly confident, is often harassed with doubts and fears upon the subject, insomuch that his sayings and experience often appear contradictory. Perhaps it could not be otherwise; the true light was not then come: Jesus alone brought life and immortality to light by his Gospel.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-16 - Job's friends had pretended to comfort him with the hope of his retur to a prosperous estate; he here shows that those do not go wisely abou the work of comforting the afflicted, who fetch their comforts from the possibility of recovery in this world. It is our wisdom to comfor ourselves, and others, in distress, with that which will not fail; the promise of God, his love and grace, and a well-grounded hope of eterna life. See how Job reconciles himself to the grave. Let this make believers willing to die; it is but going to bed; they are weary, an it is time that they were in their beds. Why should not they go willingly when their Father calls them? Let us remember our bodies ar allied to corruption, the worm and the dust; and let us seek for tha lively hope which shall be fulfilled, when the hope of the wicked shal be put out in darkness; that when our bodies are in the grave, ou souls may enjoy the rest reserved for the people of God __________________________________________________________________
