Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 28:16

_ _ gold of Ophir — the most precious (See on Job 22:24 and see on Psalms 45:9).

_ _ onyx — (Genesis 2:12). More valued formerly than now. The term is Greek, meaning “thumb nail,” from some resemblance in color. The Arabic denotes, of two colors, white preponderating.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 28:12-19.
