View Job 40 in the note window.

40:2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty q instruct [him]? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.

    (q) Is this the way for a man that will learn, to strive with God? which he reproves in Job.
40:4 Behold, I am r vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.
    (r) By which he shows that he repented and desired pardon for his faults.
40:8 Wilt thou also disannul a my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?
    (a) Signifying that they who justify themselves condemn God as unjust.
40:10 Deck thyself now [with] b majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.
    (b) Meaning, that these were proper to God, and belonged to no man.
40:13 Hide them in the dust together; [and] bind c their faces in secret.
    (c) Cause them to die if you can.
40:14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can d save thee.
    (d) Proving by this that whoever attributes to himself power and ability to save himself, makes himself God.

40:15 Behold now e behemoth, which I made f with thee; he eateth g grass as an ox.

    (e) This beast is thought to be the elephant, or some other, which is unknown.
    (f) Whom I made as well as you.
    (g) This commends the providence of God toward man: for if he were given to devour as a lion, nothing would be able to resist him, or content him.
40:19 h He [is] the chief of the ways of God: i he that made him can make his sword to approach [unto him].
    (h) He is one of the chief works of God among the beasts.
    (i) Though man dare not come near him, yet God can kill him.
40:23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, k [and] hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
    (k) He drinks at leisure, and fears nobody.
