Elihu here goes on to extol the wonderful power of
God in the meteors and all the changes of the weather: if, in those
changes, we submit to the will of God, take the weather as it is
and make the best of it, why should we not do so in other changes
of our condition? Here he observes the hand of God, I. In the
thunder and lightning, ver.
1-5. II. In the frost and snow, the rains and wind,
ver. 6-13. III. He
applies it to Job, and challenges him to solve the phenomena of
these works of nature, that confessing his ignorance in them, he
might own himself an incompetent judge in the proceedings of divine
Providence, ver. 14-22.
And then, IV. Concludes with his principle, which he undertook to
make out, That God is great and greatly to be feared, ver. 23, 24.
