    Clarke's Commentary on Job 20:28

    The increase of his house shall depart, and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath - A farther allusion to the punishment of the rebellious company of Korah, who not only perished themselves, but their houses also, and their goods. Numbers 16:32. These examples were all in point, on the ground assumed by Zophar; and such well-attested facts would not be passed over by him, had he known the record of them; and that he did know it, alludes to it, and quotes the very circumstances, is more than probable.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 20:28

    The increase of his house shall depart - Septuagint, "Destruction shall bring his house to an end." The word rendered "depart" (יגל yı̂gel from גלה gâlâh), means, properly, "shall go into captivity." The sense is, that whatever he had laid up in his house would entirely disappear.

    His goods shall flow away - What he had gained would seem to flow away like water.

    In the day of his wrath - The wrath of God - for so the connection demands.
