Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

He mocketh at fear - He laughs at that which is fitted to intimidate; that is, he is not afraid.

Neither turneth he back from the sword - He rushes on it without fear. Of the fact here stated, and the accuracy of the description, there can be no doubt.

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted,.... At those things which cause fear and fright to men; as arms, though ever so terrible, and armies, though never so numerous;

neither turneth he back from the sword; the naked sword, when it is drawn against him, and ready to be thrust into him; the horse being so bold and courageous was with the Egyptians a symbol of courage and boldnessF22Clement. Alex. Stromat. l. 5. p. 567. .

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Job 39:22 He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.

Ver. 22. He mocketh at fear, &c.] Heb. He laugheth, by an elegant prosopopoeia, (a) such as this Book is full of. Non vanes horret strepitus. He feareth no colours when once engaged in fight, but counts that a sport and play whereof others are afraid.

Neither turneth he back from the sword] Or any other offensive weapons; these cannot make him turn tail or recoil. He is never more furious than when he sees himself covered with blood. - Vires animosque a vulnere sumit; being wounded, he biteth and kicketh, and fighteth no less stoutly than the rider himself doth.
