Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 38:7

_ _ So at the founding of Zerubbabel’s temple (Ezra 3:10-13). So hereafter at the completion of the Church, the temple of the Holy Ghost (Zechariah 4:7); as at its foundation (Luke 2:13, Luke 2:14).

_ _ morning stars — especially beautiful. The creation morn is appropriately associated with these, it being the commencement of this world’s day. The stars are figuratively said to sing God’s praises, as in Psalms 19:1; Psalms 148:3. They are symbols of the angels, bearing the same relation to our earth, as angels do to us. Therefore they answer to “sons of God,” or angels, in the parallel. See on Job 25:5.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 38:4-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Job 38:7

Stars — The angels, who may well be called morning — stars, because of their excellent lustre and glory. Sons of God — The angels called the sons of God, because they had their whole being from him, and because they were made partakers of his Divine and glorious image. Shouted — Rejoiced in and blessed God for his works, whereby he intimates, that they neither did advise or any way assist him, nor dislike or censure any of his works, as Job had presumed to do.
