Job 41:32 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He maketh a path to shine after him - In certain states of the weather a rapid motion through the water disengages many sparks of phosphoric fire. I have seen this at sea; once particularly, on a fine clear night, with a good breeze, in a fast-sailing vessel, I leaned over the stern, and watched this phenomenon for hours. The wake of the vessel was like a stream of fire; millions of particles of fire were disengaged by the ship's swift motion through the water, nearly in the same way as by the electric cushion and cylinder; and all continued to be absorbed at a short distance from the vessel. Whether this phenomenon takes place in fresh water or in the Nile, I have had no opportunity of observing.
The deep to be hoary - By the frost and foam raised by the rapid passage of the animal through the water.

The law and covenant of God are co-extensive; and what is enjoined in the one is confirmed in the other. The proposals of that Covenant include its promises and its duties. The former are made and fulfilled by its glorious Originator; the latter are enjoined and obligatory on man. The duties of that Covenant are God's law; and the demands of the law are all made …

Whether the Devil Can Induce Man to Sin of Necessity?
How Sowers of Strifes and Peacemakers are to be Admonished.
Whether Wisdom Should be Reckoned among the Gifts of the Holy Ghost?
It makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment.
Nothing on earth is its equal-- a creature without fear.
