    Thine offspring as the grass - Thou shalt have a numerous and permanent issue.

    Barnes' Notes on Job 5:25

    Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great - Margin, "much." That is, thy posterity shall be numerous. This was one of the blessings supposed to be connected with the favor of God; see the notes at Isaiah 53:10.

    And thine offspring as the grass of the earth - On the meaning of the word here rendered offspring, see the notes at Isaiah 48:19. Nothing is more common in the Scriptures, than to compare a prosperous and a happy man to a green and flourishing tree; see Psalm 1:3; Psalm 92:12-14. The idea here is, that the righteous would have a numerous and a happy posterity, and that the divine favor to them would bc shown by the blessing of God on their children; compare Psalm 128:1, Psalm 128:3.

    Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord,

    That walketh in his ways.

    Thy wife shall be a fruitful vine by the side of thine house;

    Thy children like olive-plants round about thy table.
