View Job 26 in the note window.

26:2 a How hast thou helped [him that is] without power? [how] b savest thou the arm [that hath] no strength?

    (a) You concluded nothing, for neither did you help me while destitute of all help, nor yet speak sufficiently on God's behalf, who has no need for your defence.
    (b) But you do not apply it to the purpose.
26:4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit c came from thee?
    (c) That is, moves you to speak this?
26:5 d Dead [things] are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.
    (d) Job begins to declare the force of God's power and providence in the mines and metals in the deep places of the earth.
26:6 Hell [is] e naked before him, and f destruction hath no covering.
    (e) There is nothing hidden in the bottom of the earth but he sees it.
    (f) Meaning, the grave in which things putrify.
26:7 He stretcheth out the g north over the empty place, [and] hangeth the earth upon nothing.
    (g) He causes the whole earth to turn about the North pole.
26:10 He hath h compassed the waters with bounds, until the i day and night come to an end.
    (h) That is, he hid the heavens which are called his throne.
    (i) So long as this world endures.

26:11 The k pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

    (k) Not that heaven has pillars to uphold it, but he speaks by a similitude as though he would say heaven itself is not able to abide his reproach.
26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked l serpent.
    (l) Which is a figure of stars shaped like a serpent, because of the crookedness.
26:14 Lo, these [are] parts of his ways: but m how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
    (m) If these few things which we see daily with our eyes, declare his great power and providence, how much more would they appear, if we were to comprehend all his works.
