New International Version
When daylight is gone, the murderer rises up, kills the poor and needy, and in the night steals forth like a thief.

World English Bible
The murderer rises with the light. He kills the poor and needy. In the night he is like a thief.
Young's Literal Translation
At the light doth the murderer rise, He doth slay the poor and needy, And in the night he is as a thief.
Job 24:14 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The murderer rising with the light - Perhaps the words should be read as Mr. Good has done: -
With the daylight ariseth the murderer;
Poor and needy, he sheddeth blood.
This description is suitable to a highwayman; one who robs in daylight, and who has been impelled by poverty and distress to use this most unlawful and perilous mode to get bread; and for fear of being discovered or taken, commits murder, and thus adds crime to crime.
In the night is as a thief - Having been a highwayman in the daytime, he turns footpad or housebreaker by night; and thus goes on from sin to sin. There have been several instances like the case above, where poverty and distress have induced a man to go to the highway and rob, to repair the ruin of himself and family. I shall introduce an authentic story of this kind, which the reader may find at the end of this chapter.

Whether the Old Law Set Forth Suitable Precepts About the Members of the Household?
They thrust the needy from the path and force all the poor of the land into hiding.
"There are those who rebel against the light, who do not know its ways or stay in its paths.
He lies in wait near the villages; from ambush he murders the innocent. His eyes watch in secret for his victims;
The LORD enters into judgment against the elders and leaders of his people: "It is you who have ruined my vineyard; the plunder from the poor is in your houses.
Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning's light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it.
