Job Chapter 38

Job 38:1

job 38:1

The Lord answered Job

The words of jehovah have the effect of bringing Job consciously into His presence. (Job 42:5). Hitherto the discussions have been about God, but He has been conceived as absent. Now Job and the Lord are face to face. It is noteworthy that Job does not answer Elihu. Despite his harsh judgment he has spoken so truly about God that Job remains silent. (Job 38:1) might be paraphrased, "Then Jehovah answered for or on behalf of Job."

Job 38:7

sons of God
