that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, and shake the wicked out of it?
Young's Literal Translation
To take hold on the skirts of the earth, And the wicked are shaken out of it,
Job 38:13 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That the wicked might be shaken out of it? - The meaning appears to be this: as soon as the light begins to dawn upon the earth, thieves, assassins, murderers, and adulterers, who all hate and shun the light, fly like ferocious beasts to their several dens and hiding places; for such do not dare to come to the light, lest their works be manifest, which are not wrought in God. To this verse the fifteenth appears to belong, as it connects immediately with it, which connection the introduction of the fourteenth verse disturbs. "And from the wicked," such as are mentioned above "their light is withholden;" they love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil; and as they prowl after their prey in the night-season, they are obliged to sleep in the day, and thus its "light is withholden" from them. "And the high arm shall be broken;" or, as Mr. Good translates, "The roving of wickedness is broken off." They can no longer pursue their predatory and injurious excursions.

'The End of the Lord'
for he views the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens.
Because he takes note of their deeds, he overthrows them in the night and they are crushed.
He punishes them for their wickedness where everyone can see them,
He does not keep the wicked alive but gives the afflicted their rights.
He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth.
"Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place,
The earth takes shape like clay under a seal; its features stand out like those of a garment.
