    Definitions for Job 34:22

    Iniquity - Sin; wickedness; evil.

    Clarke's Commentary on Job 34:22

    There is no darkness - In this life; and no shadow of death in the other world - no annihilation in which the workers of iniquity may hide themselves, or take refuge.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 34:22

    There is no darkness - No dark cavern which can furnish a place of concealment. The guilty usually take refuge in some obscure place where people cannot detect them. But Elihu says that man has no power of concealing himself thus from God.

    Nor shadow of death - A phrase here signifying deep darkness; see it explained in the notes at Job 3:5.

    Where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves - That is, where they may conceal themselves so as not to be detected by God. They may conceal themselves from the notice of man; they may escape the most vigilant police; they may elude all the officers of justice on earth. But they cannot be hid from God. There is an eye that sees their lurking places, and there is a hand that will drag them forth to justice.
