    King James Bible - Job 37:10

    By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

    World English Bible

    By the breath of God,
    ice is given, and the breadth of the waters is frozen.

    Douay-Rheims - Job 37:10

    When God bloweth there cometh frost, and again the waters are poured out abundantly.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

    Original Hebrew

    מנשׁמת
    5397 אל 410  יתן 5414  קרח 7140  ורחב 7341  מים 4325  במוצק׃ 4164

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 37:10

    Por el soplo de Dios se da el hielo, y las anchas aguas son constreņidas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Job 37:10

    Verse 10. By the breath of God frost is given ] The freezing of water, though it is generally allowed to be the effect of cold, and has been carefully examined by the most eminent philosophers, is still involved in much mystery; and is a very proper subject to be produced among the great things which God doeth, and which we cannot comprehend, ver. 5. Water, when frozen, becomes solid, and increases considerably in bulk. The expansive power in freezing is so great, that, if water be confined in a gun-barrel, it will split the solid metal throughout its whole length. Bombshells have been filled with water, and plugged tight, and exposed to cold air, when they have been rent, though the shell has been nearly two inches thick! Attempts have been made to account for this; but they have not, as yet, been generally successful. The breath of God freezes the waters; and that breath thaws them. It is the work of Omnipotence, and there, for the present, we must leave it.

    The breadth of the waters is straitened. ] This has been variously translated; qxwm mutsak, which we here render straitened, we translate ver. 18 melted. Mr. Good thinks that the idea of a mirror is implied, or something molten; and on this ground it may be descriptive of the state of water formed into ice. He therefore translates: - By the blast of God the frost congealeth, And the expanse of the waters into a mirror.

    I have only to observe, that in the act of freezing wind or air is necessary; for it has been observed that water which lay low in ponds did not freeze till some slight current of air fell on and ruffled the surface, when it instantly shot into ice.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-13 - The changes of the weather are the subject of a great deal of ou thoughts and common talk; but how seldom do we think and speak of thes things, as Elihu, with a regard to God, the director of them! We mus notice the glory of God, not only in the thunder and lightning, but in the more common and less awful changes of the weather; as the snow an rain. Nature directs all creatures to shelter themselves from a storm and shall man only be unprovided with a refuge? Oh that men woul listen to the voice of God, who in many ways warns them to flee from the wrath to come; and invites them to accept his salvation, and to be happy. The ill opinion which men entertain of the Divine direction peculiarly appears in their murmurs about the weather, though the whol result of the year proves the folly of their complaints. Believer should avoid this; no days are bad as God makes them, though we make many bad by our sins. (Job 37:14-20)
