    Clarke's Commentary on Job 18:18

    He shall be driven from light - He shall be taken off by a violent death.

    And chased out of the world - The wicked is Driven Away in his iniquity. This shows his reluctance to depart from life.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 18:18

    He shall be driven from light into darkness - Margin, "They shall drive him." The meaning is, that he should be driven from a state of prosperity to one of calamity.

    And chased out of the world - Perhaps meaning that he should not be conducted to the grave with the slow and solemn pomp of a respectful funeral, but in a hurry - as a malefactor is driven from human life, and hastily commited to the earth. The living would be glad to be rid of him, and would "chase" him out of life.

    Wesley's Notes on Job 18:18

    18:18 Darkness - From a prosperous life to disgrace and misery, and to the grave, the land of darkness.
    Book: Job
