\\INTRODUCTION TO JOB 25\\

This chapter contains Bildad's reply to Job, such an one as it is; in
which, declining the controversy between them, he endeavours to
dissuade him from attempting to lay his cause before God, and think to
justify himself before him, from the consideration of the majesty of
God, described by the dominion he is possessed of; the fear creatures
stand in of him; the peace he makes in his high places; the number of
his armies, and the vast extent of his light, \\#Job 25:1-3\\; and from the
impossibility of man's being justified with him, or clean before him,
argued from thence, \\#Job 25:4\\; and which is further illustrated by a
comparison of the celestial bodies with men, and by an argument from
the greater to the less, that if they lose their lustre and purity in
his sight, much more man, a mean despicable worm, \\#Job 25:5,6\\.
