See commentary on Job 36:22-25.

Job 36:25

_ _ See — namely, with wondering admiration [Maurer].

_ _ man may behold — rather, “(yet) mortals (a different Hebrew word from ‘man’) behold it (only) from afar off,” see but a small “part” (Job 26:14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 36:24-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 36:25

It — The power, and wisdom, and greatness of God are so manifest in all his works, that all who are not stupid, must see and acknowledge it. Afar off — The works of God are so great and conspicuous, that they may be seen at a great distance. Hence Elihu proceeds to give some instances, in the works of nature and common providence. His general aim is to shew, That God is the first cause and supreme director of all the creatures; whom therefore we ought with all humility and reverence to adore, That it is presumption in us to prescribe to him in his special providence toward men, when the operations even of common providence about the meteors, are so mysterious and unaccountable.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 36:25

Every man may see it; man may behold [it] (q) afar off.

(q) The works of God are revealed, that a man may see them afar off, and know God by the same.
