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.
