Job 20:22 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

In the fulness of his sufficiency - When he seems to have an abundance.

The general meaning is clear, that he would be involved in misery from every quarter, or on every hand.

I propose to offer a few words of friendly exhortation to young men. I am growing old myself, but there are few things I remember so well as the days of my youth. I have a most
