|New International Version (© 2011)|
He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it.
King James Bible
He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.
American Standard Version
He incloseth the face of his throne, And spreadeth his cloud upon it.
Young's Literal Translation
Taking hold of the face of the throne, Spreading over it His cloud.
Job 26:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He holdeth back the face of his throne - Though all these are most elegant effects of an omniscient and almighty power, yet the great Agent is not personally discoverable; he dwelleth in light unapproachable, and in mercy hides himself from the view of his creatures. The words, however may refer to those obscurations of the face of heaven, and the hiding of the body of the sun, when the atmosphere is laden with dense vapours, and the rain begins to be poured down on the earth.
