CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is - This is designed to heighten the conception of the power of God. It could not be pretended that this was done by man, for the rain was caused to fall in the desolate regions where no one dwelt. In the lonely desert, in the wastes remote from the dwellings of people, the rain is sent down, evidently by the providential care of God, and far beyond the reach of the agency of man. There is very great beauty in this whole description of God as superintending the falling rain far away from the homes of people, and in those lonely wastes pouring down the waters, that the tender herb may spring up, and the flowers bloom under his hand. All this may seem to be wasted, but it is not so in the eye of God. Not a drop of rain falls in the sandy desert or on the barren rock, however useless it may seem to be, that is not seen to be of value by God, and that is not designated to accomplish some important purpose there.

"He gives rain on the earth And sends water on the fields,
When He set a limit for the rain And a course for the thunderbolt,
"For He draws up the drops of water, They distill rain from the mist,
"Whether for correction, or for His world, Or for lovingkindness, He causes it to happen.
"Who has cleft a channel for the flood, Or a way for the thunderbolt,
The pastures of the wilderness drip, And the hills gird themselves with rejoicing.
He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.
