Job 37:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
God thundereth marvellously with his voice - This is the conclusion of Elihu's description of the lightning and thunder: and here only should chapter 36 have ended. He began, Job 36:29, with the noise of God's tabernacle; and he ends here with the marvellous thundering of Jehovah. Probably the writer of the book of Job had seen the description of a similar thunder storm as given by the psalmist, Psalm 77:16-19 : -
Psalm 77:16 The waters saw thee, O God!The waters saw thee, and were afraid.Yea, the deeps were affrighted!
Psalm 77:17 The clouds poured out water;The ethers sent forth a sound;Yea, thine arrows went abroad.
Psalm 77:18 The voice of thy thunder was through the expanse:The lightnings illumined the globe;The earth trembled and shook!
Psalm 77:19 Thy way is in the sea,And thy paths on many waters;But thy footsteps are not known.
Great things doeth he - This is the beginning of a new paragraph; and relates particularly to the phenomena which are afterwards mentioned. All of them wondrous things; and, in many respects, to us incomprehensible.

Therefore it seems that the heavens should not have been opened unto Him. Objection 2: Further, the opening of the heavens is understood either in a corporal or in a spiritual sense. But it cannot be understood …
Saint Thomas Aquinas—Summa Theologica
The Justice of God
He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.
"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?"
Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice, to the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
After that comes the sound of his roar; he thunders with his majestic voice. When his voice resounds, he holds nothing back.
"Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God's wonders.
Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who has perfect knowledge?
