    Clarke's Commentary on Job 41:3

    Will he make many supplications - There are several allusions in these verses to matters of which we know nothing.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 41:3

    Will he make many supplications unto thee? - In the manner of a captive begging for his life. That is, will he quietly submit to you? Prof. Lee supposes that there is an allusion here to the well-known cries of the dolphin when taken; but it is not necessary to suppose such an allusion. The idea is, that the animal here referred to would not tamely submit to his captor.

    Will he speak soft words unto thee? - Pleading for his life in tones of tender and plaintive supplication.

    Wesley's Notes on Job 41:3

    41:3 Supplications - Doth he dread thine anger or power? Or will he earnestly beg thy favour? It is a metaphor from men in distress, who use these means to them to whose power they are subject.
