“That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.”
King James Version (KJV)
40:21 Known - God to be the only true God, the maker and governor of the world.
40:22 Sitteth - Far above this round earth, even in the highest heavens; from whence he looketh down upon the earth, where men appear to him like grasshoppers. As here we have the circle of the earth, so elsewhere we read of the circle of heaven, #Job 22:14|, and of the circle of the deep, or sea, #Prov 8:27|, because the form of the heaven, and earth and sea is circular. Spreadeth - For the benefit of the earth and of mankind, that all parts might partake of its comfortable influences.
40:24 Sown - They shall take no root, for planting and sowing are in order to taking root. They shall not continue and flourish, as they have vainly imagined, but shall be rooted up and perish.
