(10) None is so fierce that dare stir him up.--"If, therefore, the creatures of My hand strike so much terror, how far more terrible must I be? If thou canst not save thyself from them, how much less canst thou be saved without Me?" (See Job 40:14.) The first clause may be understood thus: "He is not so cruel (the common meaning of the word rendered fierce)--i.e., to himself--that he should venture to rouse him up."

Verse 10. - None is so fierce that dare stir him up. The crocodile is often seen asleep, or nearly asleep, upon sand-banks washed by the Nile. He would be a bold man who should creep near, and stir him up. Who then is able to stand before me? Here we reach the point whereto the whole argument has been working up. If man cannot cope with creatures, which are the work of God's hands, how much leas can he presume to cope with him who is their Maker!
