Job 38 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

Resources » Commentaries » Job » Chapter 38 » exegesis

God questions Job.

For the humbling of Job, God here shows him his ignorance, even concerning the earth and the sea. As we cannot find fault with God's work, so we need not fear concerning it. The works of his providence, as well as the work of creation, never can be broken; and the work of redemption is no less firm, of which Christ himself is both the Foundation and the Corner-stone. The church stands as firm as the earth. (Job 38:12-24)
