Treasury of Scripture

Fair weather comes out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.

Fair.

Proverbs 25:23
The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.

with

Job 40:10
Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.

1 Chronicles 29:11
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

Psalm 29:4
The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.









Verse 22. - Fair weather cometh out of the north; literally, out of the north cometh gold. The bearing of this is very obscure, whether we suppose actual gold to he meant, or the golden splendours of the sun, or any other bright radiance. No commentator has hit on a satisfactory explanation. With God is terrible majesty. This is sufficiently plain, and it is the point whereto all Elihu's later argument has been directed (see Job 36:22-33; Job 37:1-18). God's majesty is so great that men can only tremble before him.
