Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Job 37:18

37:18 With him - Wast thou his assistant in spreading out the sky like a canopy over the earth? Strong - Which though it be very thin and transparent, yet is also firm and compact and steadfast. Looking glass - Made of brass and steel, as the manner then was. Smooth and polished, without the least flaw. In this, as in a glass, we may behold the glory of God and the wisdom of his handy - work.

Discussion for Job 37

  • AJ
    Thank you ANNE, i read the commentary to help understand what is being the "point" And the point i get now , was Job is still suffering and Elihu is counselling
  • Chosen
    the book of JOB has a wealth of insight into the awesome power (all power!) of our Almighty Creator Jehovah GOD. Having lived thru 58 wisconsin winters, i can personally testify to Job 37:9
  • Mick
    I AM THAT I AM: Our Lord Jesus is GOD INCARNATE, not Michael. This is a false teaching of the Watchtower Society (Jehovah's Witnesses) and needs to be rightly repented of as it is soul-destroying (literally). John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the word WAS GOD.
    To all: whom God the Father will give repentance. Repent NOW of thy wickedness and believe the Gospel. The Gospel of God is this: Jesus Christ, even the Christ child, MICHAEL: is come in the flesh. The Son of man is come to save that which was lost. Turn to God with a true heart. REPENT NOW AND ASK JESUS TO SAVE YOU FROM THIS HELL. Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    God's greatness can not be fantum by any no matter how knowledgeable.
  • Anne
    Elihu is counselling and reminding Job of the greatness and excellency of God. He is a God of power, order and details and man cannot fathom his greatness.
