Definitions for Job 39 :6

Clarke's Commentary on Job 39 :6

Whose house - Habitation, or place of resort.

The barren land - מלחה melechah, the salt land, or salt places, as in the margin. See above.

Barnes's Commentary on Job 39 :6

Whose house I have made - God had appointed its home in the desert.

And the barren land his dwellings - Margin, as in Hebrew "salt places." Such places were usually barren. Psalm 107:34, "he turneth a fruitful land into barrenness." Hebrew "saltness." Thus, Virgil, Geor. ii.-238-240:

Salsa antem tellus, et quae, perhibetur amara.

Frugibus infelix: ea nec mansuescit arando;

Nec Baccho genus, aut pomis sua nomina servat.

Compare Pliny, Nat. His. 31, 7, Deuteronomy 29:23.

Wesley's Commentary on Job 39 :6
