The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible Ver. 7 Their eyes stand out with fatness…
Or their face, the eyes
being put for the whole face; so the Targum,
``their face is changed, because of fatness;''
see (Job 15:27) , otherwise through fatness the eyes are almost enclosed:
or "it goes forth out of the fatness of their eyes" F9; that is,
either "pride", which shows itself in haughty looks and scornful airs,
through the abundance possessed; or "violence", seen in the fierceness
of the eyes, and fury of the countenance; or "their eyes go out through
fatness" F11 that is, through the plenty they enjoy, their eyes go out
in lust after lawful objects:
they have more than heart could wish;
that they themselves could have
wished for heretofore, though not now; for what is it that a worldly
covetous heart cannot and does not wish for? if it had all the world,
it would not satisfy it: or "the imaginations of the heart go on" F12;
that is, after more, not being content with such things as they have;
or "they", i.e. their pride and violence,
exceed the imaginations of the heart
F13; they are more than can
be conceived of, they overpass the deeds of the wicked, (Jeremiah 5:28)
or "they transgress by the imaginations of the heart" F14; which are
evil, and that continually.
