Why Glory Should Be to God Alone
"Then the LORD answered
Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
Where were you when I laid the
foundations of the earth? Declare, if you have understanding.
Or who shut up the sea with
doors, when it broke forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
Have you commanded the morning
since your days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
Have you entered into the
springs of the sea? Or have you walked in the search of the depth?
Where is the way where light
dwells? And as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
Have you entered into the
treasures of the snow? Or have you seen the treasures of the hail,
By what way is the light
parted, which scatters the east wind upon the earth? Who has divided
a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of
To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man
is; on the wilderness, where there is no man;
Has the rain a father? Or
who has begotten the drops of dew?
Can you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or can you guide Arcturus with his sons? Know you the ordinances of heaven? Can you set the dominion thereof in the earth? Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover you?
Can you send lightnings, that they may go and say unto you, Here we are? Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? Or who has given understanding to the heart?
Who can number the clouds in
wisdom? Or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
Will you hunt the prey for the
lion? Or fill the appetite of the young lions,
"Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said, Shall he that contends with the Almighty instruct him? He that reproves God, let him answer it." -Job 40:1,2
"Then Job answered the
LORD, and said,
Therefore have I uttered that which I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Hear, I beseech you, and I will speak: I will demand of you, and declare you unto me.
I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear: but now my eye sees you. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes." -Job 42:1-6
All Glory to God.
