Verses 23-24

Job 21:23-24. One dieth in his full strength In a state of perfect health, and strength, and prosperity; all which this phrase implies. His breasts are full of milk The Hebrew word, עשׂין , gnatin, here rendered breasts, is not elsewhere used in Scripture, and therefore is translated different ways. Houbigant renders the clause, When his bowels are loaden with fatness. Others, When his milk-pails are full of milk; or, his oil-vessels are full of fatness. And his bones are moistened with marrow Which is opposed to that dryness of the bones (Job 30:30; Psalms 102:3;) which is caused by old age or grievous distempers and calamities.
