Job 20:9

The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
Read Chapter 20

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Behold him, as if it were susceptible of resentment, and entered into the views of God, chap vii. 10., and Psalm xxvi. 35. (Calmet)

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
8. What is the ‘place’ of the hypocrite, saving the heart of his flatterers? For there he rests, where he finds partialities towards him. Therefore ‘the eye that saw him shall see him no more,’ because being removed by death, he is hidden from his foolish lovers, who were wont to behold him, admiring him. ‘Neither shall his place any more behold him,’ because the tongues of his flatterers do not follow him with their partialities to the Judgment. Yet so long as he lives he does not cease to teach his followers likewise the things that he practises himself; and through the frowardness of his erring way he begets others also in a likeness to that false pretension which he shews forth.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
