Job 37:2



2 Hear [shama`] attentively [shama`] the noise [rogez] of his voice [qowl], and the sound [hegeh] that goeth out [yatsa'] of his mouth [peh]. KJV-Interlinear



2 'Listen closely to the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that goes out from His mouth. NASB



When a storm approaches, the thunderclaps gain the attention of everyone. When the storm is upon you, then the thunderclaps cannot be ignored. This is a reference to a violent storm. Think of an extremely violent thunderstorm or a hurricane with its howling winds, or the roar of a tornado as it passes overhead.


These sounds are so deafening that you can barely hear your own thoughts. And that is the picture here.


When God speaks, it is impossible to ignore His words. Today God speaks through the scriptures. But the word of God is not confined to the written word alone. Truth saturates society all over the world. In the morals of humanity, in the principles of right and wrong we learn from childhood, in the common sense applications of our daily lives, Gods truth touches every aspect of everyone's life.


Gods word is incorporated in the many principles of establishment - volition, marriage, family, freedom, liberty, pursuit of happiness, nationalism, patriotism, charity, free enterprise, and on and on. These things all received their start from God, and from no other source.


Everyday of our lives we are approached by the thunderous sound of Gods voice. Our knowledge, our conscience, our thoughts and actions, all, are always before His court of evaluation.


All around us are the thunderings of Gods voice. In our daily lives, in the economy, in the elections that are at hand, in our trip to work and to the store, in the way we interact with people and life in general.


You can live for the weekend and no more, or you can review your life each morning or evening and ask yourself if there isn't something more to life than your daily commute, or the political or social issues of the day.


One of our biggest barriers to life is our resistance to listening to the thunderings of God. Thunderings, which are always there before us, every moment of every day of our entire life.


The world is extremely good at distracting you from God and doctrine, and getting you to focus on the daily bombardment of marketing or media issues in your life. After all, those things are before our eyes and ears constantly.


But Elihu demands in his comments in this verse that you hear while you are hearing. And that is the big principle of this verse. Most folks listen and do not hear, as information seems to float right through their ears and all of those little numbers and letters fall out of their ears onto the ground.


But in the spiritual life, you are to listen, hear, and then compare life's information flow against sound doctrine.


And you can only gain sound doctrine by means of a daily study. There is no other way.
