J O B
God proceeds here to show Job what little reason
he had to charge him with unkindness who was so compassionate to
the inferior creatures and took such a tender care of them, or to
boast of himself, and his own good deeds before God, which were
nothing to the divine mercies. He shows him also what great reason
he had to be humble who knew so little of the nature of the
creatures about him and had so little influence upon them, and to
submit to that God on whom they all depend. He discourses
particularly, I. Concerning the wild goats and hinds, ver. 1-4. II. Concerning the wild
ass, ver. 5-8. III.
Concerning the unicorn, ver.
9-12. IV. Concerning the peacock, ver. 13. V. Concerning the ostrich,
ver. 13-18. VI.
Concerning the horse, ver.
19-25. VII. Concerning the hawk and the eagle, ver. 26-30.
