By what way is the lightning distributed, or the east wind scattered on the earth?
Young's Literal Translation
Where is this, the way light is apportioned? It scattereth an east wind over the earth.
Job 38:24 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
By what way is the light parted - Who can accurately describe the cause and operation of a thunder cloud, the cause, nature, and mode of operation of the lightning itself? Is it a simple element or compound substance?

What are its particles, and how do they cohere, and in what order are they propagated? Much has been said on all these points, and how little of that much satisfactorily!
Scattereth the east wind upon the earth? - קדים kadim, the eastern storm, euroclydon, or levanter.
