25 When he established the force of the wind and measured out the waters,
25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
25 When he gave to the wind its weight and apportioned the waters by measure,
25 After he commanded the winds to blow and measured out the waters,
25 To establish a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure.
25 He decided how hard the winds should blow and how much rain should fall.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Job 28:25
Commentary on Job 28:20-28
(Read Job 28:20-28)
There is a two-fold wisdom; one hid in God, which is secret, and belongs not to us; the other made known by him, and revealed to man. One day's events, and one man's affairs, have such reference to, and so hang one upon another, that He only, to whom all is open, and who sees the whole at one view, can rightly judge of every part. But the knowledge of God's revealed will is within our reach, and will do us good. Let man look upon this as his wisdom, To fear the Lord, and to depart from evil. Let him learn that, and he is learned enough. Where is this wisdom to be found? The treasures of it are hid in Christ, revealed by the word, received by faith, through the Holy Ghost. It will not feed pride or vanity, or amuse our vain curiosity. It teaches and encourages sinners to fear the Lord, and to depart from evil, in the exercise of repentance and faith, without desiring to solve all difficulties about the events of this life.
