2 "God is sovereign, God is fearsome - everything in the cosmos fits and works in his plan.
2 "Dominion and fear belong to Him; He makes peace in His high places.
2 "God is powerful and dreadful. He enforces peace in the heavens.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 25:2
Bildad shows that man cannot be justified before God.
Bildad drops the question concerning the prosperity of wicked men; but shows the infinite distance there is between God and man. He represents to Job some truths he had too much overlooked. Man's righteousness and holiness, at the best, are nothing in comparison with God's, Zechariah 13:1. We should be humbled as mean, guilty, polluted creatures, and renounce self-dependence. But our vileness will commend Christ's condescension and love; the riches of his mercy and the power of his grace will be magnified to all eternity by every sinner he redeems.
