|New International Version (© 2011)|
How great is God--beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out.
King James Bible
Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.
American Standard Version
Behold, God is great, and we know him not; The number of his years is unsearchable.
Young's Literal Translation
Lo, God is high, And we know not the number of His years, Yea, there is no searching.
Job 36:26 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
God is great - He is omnipotent.
We know him not - He is unsearchable.
Neither can the number of his years be searched out - He is eternal.
These three propositions are an ample foundation for endless disquisition. As to paraphrase and comment, they need none in this place; they are too profound, comprehensive, and sublime.
