[ Illustration: The First Illustration above depicts the strange juxtaposition of a destructive whirlwind (hurricane) and a deliverance (of the body of Mark from pagan desecration). Likewise, in the last chapters of Job, the LORD comes in a terrifying whirlwind putting Job on trial, but in the end, justifying and delivering him. The Second Illustration depicts one of the most famous phrases in the book of Job and in Scripture: "when the morning stars sang together." ]
[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: In Job 38, the LORD begins to speak to Job. His words continue till the end of the book in chapter 42.
The LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind (1).
He told Job that Job was darkening counsel by words without knowledge; and he demanded that Job answer his questions. His questions in this chapter concern nature -- the thing with which Job was most familiar (2-3).
The LORD's first set of questions were about creation. He challenged Job to tell him where Job was when he laid the foundations of the earth and measured it out. He wanted Job to tell him upon what the earth's foundations were laid and who laid the cornerstone. He informed Job that on that occasion the morning stars sang together and the sons of God (the angels) shouted for joy. And he asked Job who put the sea under control as if it had been enclosed by a swaddling band or closed in with bars and doors so that it could come to a certain place but could go no further (4-11).
He then asked Job if he was able to make the morning begin or to shake the wicked out of the earth and break their strength (12-15).
He wanted to know if Job had seen the springs of the sea or had searched its depths. He asked Job if he had entered the gates of death or seen its doors. He asked if Job had explored the breadth of the earth (16-18).
He wanted Job to tell him where light and darkness dwelt, or knew its full extent, or if he was there when it was born. He asked Job if he had seen the treasures of the snow or the hail which he used as weapons of war. He wanted Job to tell him if he knew how the light was parted or how the east wind came upon the earth (19-24).
He demanded that Job tell him who made a watercourse for the waters or who made a path for the lightning. He asked Job who causes it to rain in the wilderness and bring forth the tender herbs (25-27).
He asked him if the rain or the dew had a father, or if the ice had a mother, or if someone had engendered the frost -- the things which make water as hard as stone and freeze the face of the deep (28-30).
He asked Job if he could bind the Pleiades or release the bands or Orion. He asked if Job could bring forth the zodiac constellations (Mazzaroth, month by month) or guide Arcturus (the Bear constellation) with its sons (the tail stars, or perhaps the nearby stars that rotate around the North Pole with it). He asked him if he knew the ordinances of heaven or if he could establish the dominion of heaven over earth (31-33).
He asked if Job could cause the clouds to cover him with rain or send forth the lightning or call it to appear before him. He wanted Job to tell him who had put wisdom and understanding within. He asked him who cold number the clouds or who could stop them from producing rain, causing the earth to become dry and hard (34-38).
He asked Job if he was able to hunt prey for the lion or feed the young lions which crouch in their dens and lie in wait. He asked him who provides food for the ravens when its chicks cry to God and wander in search of food (39-41).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.
