Job 28:25 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
28:25 Winds - God manageth them all by weight, appointing to every wind that blows, its season, its proportion, its bounds, when, and where, and how much, and how long each shall blow. He only doth all these things, and he only knows why he doth them. He instanceth in some few of God's works, and those which seem to be most trivial, and uncertain, that thereby he might more strongly imply that God doth the same in other things which are more considerable, that he doth all things in the most exact order, and weight, and measure. The waters - Namely, the rain - waters, which God layeth up in his store - houses, the clouds, and thence draws them forth, and sends them down upon the earth in such times and proportions as he thinks fit. Measure - For liquid things are examined by measure, as other things are by weight: and here is both weight and measure to signify with what perfect wisdom God governs the world.

But those who rise shall be like the angels, as is stated (Mat. 22:30). Therefore an angel can see what is in another's conscience. …
Saint Thomas Aquinas—Summa Theologica
Whether the Grace of Christ is Infinite?
Whether Fear is the Beginning of Wisdom?
Whether Clarity is Becoming to the Glorified Body?
If he holds back the rain, the earth becomes a desert. If he releases the waters, they flood the earth.
"Who kept the sea inside its boundaries as it burst from the womb,
He causes the clouds to rise over the whole earth. He sends the lightning with the rain and releases the wind from his storehouses.
