|Overview - Job 28|
| 1 ||There is a knowledge of natural things. |
|12 ||But wisdom is an excellent gift of God. |
Job 28:25 (King James Version)
To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
- To make the weight, etc
- God has given an atmosphere to the earth, which, possessing a certain degree of gravity perfectly suited to the necessities of all animals, vegetables, and fluids, should be the cause, in His hands, of preserving animal and vegetable life; for by it the blood circulates in the veins of animals, and the juices in the tubes of vegetables. Without this atmospheric pressure there could be no respiration; and the elasticity of the particles of air in animal and vegetable bodies, would rupture the vessels in which they are contained, and destroy both kinds of life.
- Psalms 135:7 ; Isaiah 40:12
- he weigheth
- He has exactly proportioned the aqueous surface of the earth to the terrene parts, for the purpose of evaporation, etc.
