Iyov Twenty-Five: Capacity

“Have His troops a number, and on whom does His light not shine (Job 25:3)?” Bildad the Shuhite is once again the speaker here, and he’s referencing God as a being with infinite power and capacity. This is demonstrated in the two examples that he gives to represent that infiniteness. The first is God’s troops, the individuals who fight (physically or metaphorically) to carry out His will. The second is both a compliment and a converse to that, representing all people and places in some way, because according to this philosophy there’s no one who God doesn’t touch in some capacity. So in some way or another, we’re all in this, and it’s up to us to recognize it and honor it.
