New International Version
See how he scatters his lightning about him, bathing the depths of the sea.
King James Bible
Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea.
Darby Bible Translation
Lo, he spreadeth his light around him, and covereth the bottom of the sea.
World English Bible
Behold, he spreads his light around him. He covers the bottom of the sea.
Young's Literal Translation
Lo, He hath spread over it His light, And the roots of the sea He hath covered,
Job 36:30 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He spreadeth his light upon it - Or, as Mr. Good translates, "He throweth forth from it his flash." These two verses may both have an allusion to the sudden rarefaction of that part of the atmosphere whence the thunder proceeds, by the agency of the electric fluid; the rushing in of the air on each side to restore the equilibrium, which the passage of the fire had before destroyed. The noise produced by this sudden rushing in of the air, as well as that occasioned by the ignition of the hydrogen gas, which is one of the constituents of water, is the thunder of his tabernacle, viz., the atmosphere, where God appears, in such cases, to be manifesting his presence and his power. Elihu says that God spreadeth his light upon it. This is spoken in reference to the flashes and coruscations of lightning in the time of thunder storms, when, even in a dark night, a sudden flash illuminates for a moment the surface of the earth under that place.
And covereth the bottom of the sea - He doth whatsoever it pleaseth him in the heavens above, in the earth beneath, in the sea, and in all deep places. Yea, the depths of the sea are as much under his control and influence as the atmosphere, and its whole collection of vapours, meteors, and galvanic and electric fluids.

LibraryWhether by his Passion Christ Merited to be Exalted?
Objection 1: It seems that Christ did not merit to be exalted on account of His Passion. For eminence of rank belongs to God alone, just as knowledge of truth, according to Ps. 112:4: "The Lord is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens." But Christ as man had the knowledge of all truth, not on account of any preceding merit, but from the very union of God and man, according to Jn. 1:14: "We saw His glory . . . as it were of the only-Begotten of the Father, full of grace and of truth." …

Messiah's Easy Yoke
Who can understand how he spreads out the clouds, how he thunders from his pavilion?
This is the way he governs the nations and provides food in abundance.
