Job 25

CHAPTER 25

THIRD SERIES.

Job 25:1-6 . BILDAD'S REPLY.

He tries to show Job's rashness ( Job 23:3 ), by arguments borrowed from Eliphaz ( Job 15:15 ), with which compare Job 11:17 .

2. Power and terror, that is, terror-inspiring power.
peace in his high places--implying that His power is such on high as to quell all opposition, not merely there, but on earth also. The Holy Ghost here shadowed forth Gospel truths ( Colossians 1:20 , Ephesians 1:10 ).

3. armies--angels and stars ( Isaiah 40:26 , Jeremiah 33:22 , Genesis 15:5 ; "countless," Daniel 7:10 ).
his light--( James 1:17 ).

4. ( Job 4:17 Job 4:18 , 14:4 , 15:14 ).

5. "Look up even unto the moon" ( Job 15:15 ). "Stars" here answer to "saints" (angels); the moon" here to "the heavens" there. Even the "stars," the most dazzling object to man's eye, and the angels, of which the stars are emblems ( Job 4:18 , Revelation 9:1 ), are imperfect in His sight. Theirs is the light and purity but of creatures; His of the Creator.

6. ( Job 4:19-21 , 15:16 ).
worm . . . worm--Two distinct Hebrew words. The first, a worm bred in putridity; alluding to man's corruption. The second a crawling worm; implying that man is weak and grovelling.
