By his knowledge the depths are broken up
From whence fountains and rivers flow, and whereby that great cavity was made which holds that large confluence of waters called the sea, ( Genesis 1:9 Genesis 1:10 ) . Some refer this to the breaking up the fountains of the great deep at the flood, ( Genesis 7:11 ) ; and others to the dividing of the waters of the Red sea when Israel came out of Egypt, ( Psalms 78:13 ) ; all wonderful works of divine wisdom, and show the greatness of him, in whom are "hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge", ( Colossians 2:3 ) , by whom they were done; and the clouds drop down the dew;
which makes the earth fruitful, and is put for all the blessings of nature, ( Genesis 27:28 ) ; the drops of dew are begotten by the Lord, they have no other father but him; the vanities of the Gentiles cannot produce them; he who fills the clouds with them, from whence they descend, is no other than the mighty God; and such is Christ the Wisdom of God. Some understand this in a mystical sense of Gospel ministers, and of the dew of Gospel doctrine, dropped and distilled by them under the influence and direction of Christ; see ( Deuteronomy 32:2 ) ; but the literal sense is best.
