At this also my heart trembleth,
And is moved out of his place.
Hear attentively the noise of his voice,
And the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
He directeth it under the whole heaven,
And his lightning unto the ends of the earth.
After it Ps. 29:3a voice roareth:
He thundereth with the voice of his excellency;
And he will not stay them when his voice is heard.
God thundereth marvellously with his voice;
ch. 5:9Great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
For Ps. 147:16he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth;
Likewise to the small rain,
And to the great rain of his strength.
He sealeth up the hand of every man;
Ps. 109:27That all men may know his work.
Then the beasts Ps. 104:22go into dens,
And remain in their places.
Out of the south cometh the whirlwind:
And cold out of the north.
Ps. 147:17By the breath of God frost is given:
And the breadth of the waters is straitened.
Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud:
He scattereth his bright cloud:
And it is turned round about by his counsels:
That they may Ps. 148:8do whatsoever he commandeth them
Upon the face of the world in the earth.
Ex. 9:18He causeth it to come, whether for correction,
Or ch. 38:26for his land, or 2 Sam. 21:10;1 Ki. 18:45for mercy.
Consider his wondrous works
Hearken unto this, O Job:
Stand still, and Ps. 111:2consider the wondrous works of God.
Dost thou know when God disposed them,
And caused the light of his cloud to shine?
ch. 36:29Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds,
The wondrous works of ch. 36:4him which is perfect in knowledge?
How thy garments are warm,
When he quieteth the earth by the south wind?
Hast thou with him Gen. 1:6;Is. 44:24spread out the sky,
Which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?
Teach us what we shall say unto him;
For we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.
Shall it be told him that I speak?
If a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.
And now men see not the bright light
Which is in the clouds:
But the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.
Fair weather cometh out of the north:
With God is terrible majesty.
Touching the Almighty, 1 Tim. 6:16we cannot find him out: ch. 36:5he is excellent in power,
And in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
Men do therefore Mat. 10:28fear him:
He respecteth not any that are Mat. 11:25wise of heart.
The Lord speaks
