10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
10 when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,
10 and prescribed limits for it and set bars and doors,
10 Then I made a playpen for it, a strong playpen so it couldn't run loose,
10 When I fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors;
10 For I locked it behind barred gates, limiting its shores.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 38:10
Commentary on Job 38:4-11
(Read Job 38:4-11)
For the humbling of Job, God here shows him his ignorance, even concerning the earth and the sea. As we cannot find fault with God's work, so we need not fear concerning it. The works of his providence, as well as the work of creation, never can be broken; and the work of redemption is no less firm, of which Christ himself is both the Foundation and the Corner-stone. The church stands as firm as the earth.
