\\INTRODUCTION TO JOB 40\\

In this chapter Job is called upon to give in his answer, \\#Job 40:1,2\\,
which he does in the most humble manner, acknowledging his vileness and
folly, \\#Job 40:3-5\\; and then the Lord proceeds to give him further
conviction of his superior justice and power, \\#Job 40:6-9\\; and one
thing he proposes to him, to humble the proud, if he could, and then he
would own his own right hand could save him, \\#Job 40:10-15\\; and
observes to him another instance of his power in a creature called
behemoth, which he had made, and gives a description of, \\#Job 40:15-24\\.
