    THIRD SERIES.

    Job 25:1-6. BILDAD'S REPLY.

    - peace in his high places--implying that His power is such on high as to quell all opposition, not merely there, but on earth also. The Holy Ghost here shadowed forth Gospel truths (Col 1:20; Eph 1:10).

    3. armies--angels and stars (Isa 40:26; Jer 33:22; Ge 15:5; "countless," Da 7:10).
    - his light-- (Jas 1:17).

    4. (Job 4:17, 18; 14:4; 15:14).

    5. "Look up even unto the moon" (Job 15:15). "Stars" here answer to "saints" (angels) there; "the moon" here to "the heavens" there. Even the "stars," the most dazzling object to man's eye, and the angels, of which the stars are emblems (Job 4:18; Re 9:1), are imperfect in His sight. Theirs is the light and purity but of creatures; His of the Creator.

    6. (Job 4:19-21; 15:16).
    - worm . . . worm--Two distinct Hebrew words. The first, a worm bred in putridity; alluding to man's corruption. The second a crawling worm; implying that man is weak and grovelling.
