Job 25:2

job 25:2

(a) Dominion and fear [are] with him, he maketh peace in his high places.

Job 25:3

job 25:3

Is there any number of his armies? (b) and upon whom doth not his light arise?

(b) Who can hide him from his presence?

Job 25:4

job 25:4

How then can man (c) be justified with God? or how can he be clean [that is] born of a woman?

(c) That is, be just in respect to God?

Job 25:5

job 25:5

Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, (d) the stars are not pure in his sight.

(d) If God shows his power, the moon and stars cannot have the light which is given to them, much less can man have any excellency but from God.
