CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Because he covereth his face with his fatness - That is, he not only stretches out his hand against God Job 15:25 and rushes upon him as an armed foe Job 15:26, but he gives himself up to a life of luxury, gluttony, and licentiousness; and therefore, these calamities must come upon him. This is designed to be a description of a luxurious and licentious person - a man who is an enemy of God, and who, therefore, must incur his displeasure.
And maketh collops of fat - Like an ox that is fattened. The word collop properly means "a small slice of meat, a piece of flesh" (Webster), but here it means a thick piece, or a mass. The word is used in this sense in New England. The sense is, that he becomes excessively fat and gross - as they usually do who live in sensual indulgence and who forget God.

"He rushes headlong at Him With his massive shield.
They have closed their unfeeling heart, With their mouth they speak proudly.
Their eye bulges from fatness; The imaginations of their heart run riot.
Their heart is covered with fat, But I delight in Your law.
