\\INTRODUCTION TO JOB 26\\

In this chapter Job, in a very sarcastic manner, rallies Bildad on the
weakness and impertinence of his reply, and sets it in a very
ridiculous light; showing it to be quite foolish and stupid, and not at
all to the purpose, and besides was none of his own, but what he had
borrowed from another, \\#Job 26:1-4\\; and if it was of any avail in the
controversy to speak of the greatness and majesty of God, of his
perfections and attributes, of his ways and works, he could say greater
and more glorious things of God than he had done, and as he does,
\\#Job 26:5-13\\; beginning at the lower parts of the creation, and
gradually ascending to the superior and celestial ones; and concludes
with observing, that, after all, it was but little that was known of
God and his ways, by himself, by Bildad, or by any mortal creature,
\\#Job 26:14\\.
