Job 26: Job Declares God’s Sovereignty

Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways, And how small a whisper we hear of Him! But the thunder of His power who can understand?” Job 26:14

Job dismisses Bildad with scathing sarcasm. In powerful poetry, he affirms God’s majesty. Surely we can hardly comprehend even the “outer fringe” of so great a God, much less squeeze Him into the friends’ comfortable categories (vv. 5-14).

26:14 This is one of the most stunning of all the verses in the Bible that describe the power of God. Job asserts that if we truly considered God’s great power, we would know that what we observe of creation represents the mere edges of His garment – just His whisper. What would happen to us if ever He were to thunder?

→ A god no wiser than we are would be a pitiful god indeed.
