11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
11 when I said, 'This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt'?
11 and said, 'Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed'?
11 And said, 'Stay here, this is your place. Your wild tantrums are confined to this place.'
11 When I said, 'This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!'
11 I said, 'This far and no farther will you come. Here your proud waves must stop!'
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 38:11
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.
