Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 37:7

_ _ In winter God stops man’s out-of-doors activity.

_ _ sealeth — closeth up (Job 9:7). Man’s “hands” are then tied up.

_ _ his work — in antithesis to man’s own work (“hand”) which at other times engages men so as to make them liable to forget their dependence on God. Umbreit more literally translates, That all men whom He has made (literally, “of His making”) may be brought to acknowledgment.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 37:6-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 37:7

Sealeth — By these snows and rains he drives men out of the fields, and seals or binds up their hands from their work. That — They may seriously contemplate on these, and other great and glorious works of God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 37:7

He (e) sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

(e) By rains and thunders God causes men to keep themselves within their houses.
