CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Upon man abundantly - That is, upon many people. The clouds having received the ascending vapor, retain it, and pour it down copiously for the use of man. The arrangement, to the eye even of one who did not understand the scientific principles by which it is done, is beautiful and wonderful; the beauty and wonder are increased when the laws by which it is accomplished are understood.

"Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds, The thundering of His pavilion?
"Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew?
"Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, So that an abundance of water will cover you?
You have crowned the year with Your bounty, And Your paths drip with fatness.
By His knowledge the deeps were broken up And the skies drip with dew.
