Job 25:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

Job 25:2 Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.

Job 25:3 Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?

Job 25:4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?

Job 25:5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.

Job 25:6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

Introduction

This 25th chapter is Bildad’s third round in his self- righteous attempt to help Job to see just how evil a man Job is. Job’s self- righteousness is apparently more than sufficient to soak up Bildad’s false accusations. What you and I need to keep in mind as we come to see all these men in the scriptures, is that Job and Bildad, Eliphaz and Zophar are all to be found in our own Adamic flesh, and their words and actions are within all flesh, including our flesh, and not just in any one generation past, present or future.

Ecc 3:14 I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; and God does it so that they fear before Him.

Ecc 3:15 That which has been is now; and that which is to be has already been; and God requires that which is past.

Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

1Co 3:21 Therefore let no one glory in men. For all things are yours,

1Co 3:22 whether it is Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours

“Whatever God does… every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God… the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours”. This must surely include the prosperity of the wicked which so perplexes Job and his accusers.

Bildad makes no attempt at all to deal with the question Job puts before him when he asks why God blesses the wicked while chastening His own people. So, just as we all do, Bildad simply ignores what he cannot answer and goes on to other things.

Job himself ignores all the crushing trials God has placed upon him and continues declaring his own righteousness as if he were above reproach.

Job 27:5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

Job 27:6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

We have seen that the story of how God blesses Ishmael and causes both him and Esau to become “great nations” explains what God is doing with Job. We saw how God caused Israel’s enemies to prosper and become great kingdoms long before He begins to prosper His elect, even though they are both archenemies of Isaac, who is the type of His very elect.

Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

Gal 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

Gal 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.

Gal 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.

We saw this principle of God first blessing the natural wicked old man within us, while chastening the new man within us, to be God’s own signature in dealing with His elect, and we saw that this principle was revealed to us in these verses of Genesis:

Gen 17:18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

Gen 17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

Gen 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

What the symbolism of these verses tell us is that our sins and self- righteousness prosper and are blessed first in our lives. This explains why God blesses the evil, self- righteous, carnal- minded man within us before He blesses our new man. We saw that the wicked flourish first for the very purpose of being destroyed first within us:

Psa 92:7 When the wicked [ man within] spring[ s up] as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Rom 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

2Th 2:4 Who [ our self- righteous, carnal- minded old man] opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

We cannot change this order because it is ordained by God and is “written in His book” for all men of all time.

This is the principle our Lord revealed to us in “the parable of the tares”. In that parable the Lord of the field would not permit His laborers to gather the tares or to take them out from among the wheat “until the harvest”. At the time of the harvest the workers are instructed “gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

A brother who is friends with wheat farmers told me that a farmer explained to him that in the time of the harvest, the fruit of the wheat causes the wheat to bow down with the weight of the fruit it has brought forth, but the tares have no such burden and like self- righteous Job, they stand up straight and tall, reproving, contending with and condemning their own husbandman, or in Job and in our case, our own Creator. The Lord’s true servants have no trouble discerning who has the fruit and who doesn’t:

Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Paul knew all about this principle of God’s working in the lives of all men. Here is how Paul expresses the principle of Gen 17:20:

1Co 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first [ Ishmael in type] which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual [ Isaac in type].

1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

We are one and all “earthy” before any of us will “bear the image of the heavenly”. The order cannot be reversed. The “earthy” will be first, and the earthy elect will be the first to be judged.

1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Solomon tells us that the way God works is always the same and cannot be changed. Let’s look at it again:

Ecc 3:14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever [ Hebrew, olawm, age]: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

But neither Job nor his accusers understand what God is doing. They all think they know God, but at the same time they all admit that they do not know God or His ways. In his last exchange with Job, Bildad asked Job:

Job 18:3 Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?

Now in this chapter, He asks a different question which makes it appear that he now agrees with Job that he is indeed vile, and that men are all vile by nature:

Job 25:4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?

What this demonstrates is the confusion that is Babylon within us all. Bildad does not see the contradiction which he and his friends are. Bildad, Eliphaz, Zophar and Job are all the the Old Testament type of you and me while we are in the confusion and contradictions which are “the mother of harlot”, Babylon (Rev 17:5). We are still in Babylon when our judgment begins. While unfaithful Babylon is still within us, we are self- righteously disobeying and condemning our heavenly husband even as we commit spiritual fornication against Him.

This is a pivotal point in our walk:

Isa 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

Jer 3:3 Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore’s forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.

Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Rev 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Rev 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

Like an unfaithful wife who refuses to be ashamed, we defend the self- righteous beast we are with our own dying breath:

Job 27:5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

Job 27:6 My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.

Job’s and our own self- righteousness is the most insidious of all forms of spiritual fornication. Like a whore who refuses to be ashamed, we don’t even acknowledge our own spiritual fornication.

Luk 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

We actually think in our self- righteousness that we are somehow better than other men. But just as a harlot cannot know peace of mind even as she denies her own obvious condemnation, this is the quandary in which we as the church at Laodicea finds ourselves, and that is why Bildad has so little to say here in his last opportunity to condemn his friend, Job.

Bildad is also forced to acknowledge, as Job himself later confesses, that all men are vile by nature. This chapter is only six verses long and is summarized by Bildad’s admission of God’s sovereign dominion and his question “How… can a man be justified with God or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?”

Job 25:1 Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

Job 25:2 Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places.

Having no answer for Job’s question which confronts God’s ways in blessing the wicked while chastening his elect, Bildad chooses instead to dwell upon the obvious fact that God does indeed have dominion, and that we need to fear Him.

What exactly is the extent of that “dominion”? How far does God’s dominion extend? Does it extend to all of His creation? Here is what Job Himself tells us:

Job 9:5 Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.

Job 9:6 Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

Job 9:7 Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.

Job 9:8 Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.

Job 9:9 Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

Job 9:10 Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

Does it extend to the very thoughts of men before those thoughts are even conceived? What do the scriptures tell us?

Gen 45:4 And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.

Gen 45:5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

Gen 45:6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

Gen 45:7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

Gen 45:8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

Those who are given eyes that see and ears that hear know that “the mountains… the earth… the sun” and all things physical, carry with them an inward, spiritual significance. The earth and all the things upon the earth, are symbols of our physical lives, while the sun, the moon, and the stars, are all symbols of those things which inhabit the powers and principalities of our hearts and our minds. It is here in our heavens that the great battles of scripture are all waged, and that is exactly what the scriptures tell us:

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places [ Greek, the heavens].

Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

So yes, God is sovereign over all things in heaven and in earth. He is sovereign over both our thoughts and our actions. It is He who tells us:

Psa 90:3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

Psa 139:16 Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, Even the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was none of them.

Pro 16:1 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.

Pro 20:24 Man’s goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

Isa 63:17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy way s, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.

So just how far does God’s sovereignty extend? Here is Christ’s own answer:

Joh 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Does Joh 15:5 tell us that if we do not “abide in Him” that we are therefore free to do as we please? Is that what that verse said? Hardly! This is the truth of the extent of God’s sovereignty:

Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Rom 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

Rom 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

In other words:

Eph 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

That is the extent of God’s sovereignty. It is total and complete, with no exceptions, good or evil:

Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

Even the wicked are made by God, not of themselves. God makes the evil in all of us “for the day of evil” within us all.

Job 25:3 Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?

Here is the scripture that comes closest to placing a number upon God’s spiritual hosts:

Rev 5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

So if there is a number to be placed upon the heavenly hosts, God is keeping it a secret from us. This phrase “ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands of thousands” just serves to indicate that the answer to Bildad’s question is that there is no one upon whom his light does not shine. His Sun “rises on the evil and on the good”:

Mat 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

All of this being so:

Job 25:4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?

Bildad is asking the same question Job himself has already asked, in the same ninth chapter which we have quoted above:

Job 9:2 I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?

Job 9:3 If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.

Job 9:4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered?

Bildad points out the fact that even the stars, “the heavens themselves… Are not pure in His sight”.

Job 25:5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight.

Again the heavens, and all in the heavens, are the Biblical type of our hearts and minds:

Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Heb 9:23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these [ the blood of calves and goats, verse 19]; but the heavenly things themselves [ The hearts and minds of mankind] with better sacrifices than these.

Heb 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

“The heavens themselves” are indeed in need of being purified. “The stars are not pure in his sight”.

The fact that Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar, and Job, can see that “man… is a worm”, and yet they can, with the same breath, mouth and tongue utter words which demonstrate that they consider themselves to be above such a lowly condition, demonstrates the self- righteous confusion within us which is the hallmark of the confusion which is Babylon. But such is the depth of our own inward self- righteousness. We are so convinced of our own righteousness that even as we confess that we are but worms, at the same time we are capable of looking down on our fellow worms and condemning them for thinking that man can be justified before God.

Job 25:6 How much less [ than the stars of heaven] man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

If man in a body of carnal flesh is a worm, what becomes of him in that condition? We have been told that God hates sin, but He loves the sinner. Nowhere in scripture are we told that God loves sinners. We are told that He loves the world and will give life to all who are in Adam, “the vessel of clay” who is the ultimate type of the sinners we all are.

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

What the scriptures actually teach, and what we are told, is that the sinner himself is our carnal- minded old man who, in such a state, is condemned and will be destroyed and that it is through his death and his destruction that God’s love of the world is proven, and a new man will be created and saved.

1Co 3:13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.

1Co 3:14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

1Co 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

So that is what happens to the sinner we all are by nature. That is what happens to the “worm” we all are by nature. Our “old man… the first man Adam” must die in Adam, and via that dying process, be changed into “the new man… the last Adam”.

Here is how Christ expresses what He is in the process of doing with His creatures:

Joh 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

Like the worm that becomes a beautiful butterfly, we must give up the life of our old man and through a resurrection from the dead, “be transformed into the image of… the last Adam”.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

We live by all of these words (Mat 4:4). The “loss” of 1Co 3:15, which we all suffer is the destruction of the old man who has “defiled the temple of God” as we all, by our very nature, have done.

What it all means is that our old sinful bodies of flesh were, by God’s own design, created in a marred condition while yet in the Potter’s hand, and that “marred”, old sinful man was never intended to inherit the kingdom of God, but has, from the beginning, been slated for destruction and death out of which a new transformed man is to be born.

It is all explained in this same epistle to the church at Corinth:

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

1Co 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

1Co 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

1Co 15:27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.

1Co 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam [ the sinner, our old man] was made a living soul; the last Adam [ Christ in us the hope of glory] was made a quickening spirit.

1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

1Co 15:49 A nd as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall [ through the destruction of the earthy] also bear the image of the heavenly.

1Co 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

1Co 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Co 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

1Co 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

This is the fate of “the earthy”, and this is the fate of “they also that are heavenly”. Yes, God loved us “while we were yet in sin”.

Eph 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, ( by grace ye are saved😉

Are the words “for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins”, actually telling us that “God loves the sinner, but hates the sin”? No, nowhere are we told that God loves sinners. What we are told is that our old sinful man will be destroyed.

1Co 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

If He loved sinners, He would keep them as sinners. What God does love is what He is in the process of doing with sinners, in “transforming” them into perfected images of His Son, “by the renewing of [ our] mind”.

Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy [ the sinner], we shall also bear the image of the heavenly [ the righteous man]

Col 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Neither Bildad nor Job yet know or understand anything at all of this process God is working within us. All they can see at this point is that “the son of man… is a worm”.

This is the last we will be hearing from any of these three “miserable comforters”. Job now has the stage for the next six chapters, chapters 26-31. As we will see, his pride and self- righteousness are completely intact, and he is now free to proclaim his own righteousness and to condemn his Creator for the way he is being treated.

Here are our verses for next week’s study:

Job 26:1 But Job answered and said,

Job 26:2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

Job 26:3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?

Job 26:4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?

Job 26:5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

Job 26:6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

Job 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

Job 26:8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

Job 26:9 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

Job 26:10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

Job 26:11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

Job 26:12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

Job 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

Job 26:14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
