Job 25

 

 

Verse 2
a Dominion and fear [are] with him, he maketh peace in his high places.

(a) His purpose is to prove that although God may try and afflict the just, yet soon after he sends prosperity, and because he did not do so to Job he concludes that he is wicked.

Verse 3
Is there any number of his armies? b and upon whom doth not his light arise?

(b) Who can hide him from his presence?

Verse 4
How then can man c be justified with God? or how can he be clean [that is] born of a woman?

(c) That is, be just in respect to God?

Verse 5
Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, d the stars are not pure in his sight.

(d) If God shows his power, the moon and stars cannot have the light which is given to them, much less can man have any excellency but from God.
