Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 37:9

_ _ south — literally, “chambers”; connected with the south (Job 9:9). The whirlwinds are poetically regarded as pent up by God in His southern chambers, whence He sends them forth (so Job 38:22; Psalms 135:7). As to the southern whirlwinds (see Isaiah 21:1; Zechariah 9:14), they drive before them burning sands; chiefly from February to May.

_ _ the north — literally, “scattering”; the north wind scatters the clouds.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 37:6-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 37:9

Cold — Freezing winds.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Job 37:9

Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the (f) north.

(f) In Hebrew it is called the scattering wind, because it drives away the clouds and purges the air.
