Job 28

Verses 1-28

Job 28:1

'In the centre of the world-whirlwind,' says Carlyle in the first part of Past and Present (chap. 11.), 'verily now as in the oldest days, dwells and speaks a God. The great soul of the world is just. O brother, can it be needful now, at this late epoch of experience, after eighteen centuries of Christian preaching for one thing, to remind thee of such a fact.'

Sans-culottism will burn much; but what is incombustible it will not burn. Fear not Sans-culottism; recognize it for what it is, the portentous, inevitable end of much, the miraculous beginning of much. One other thing thou mayest recognize of it: that it too came from God; for has it not been? From of old, as it is written, are His goings forth; in the great Deep of things; fearful and wonderful now as in the beginning: in the whirlwind also He speaks; and the wrath of man is made to praise Him.
