Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? or who has given understanding to the heart?
All Commentaries on Job 38:36 Go To Job 38
George Leo Haydock
Understanding. That is, to distinguish the hours of the night. (Challoner)
Septuagint, "Who gave to women the knowledge of the loom, and the art of embroidering? "(Haydock)
It was the part of women to weave, as appears from the conduct of queen Penelope. But the best interpreters translate, "Who has placed wisdom in the reins, or who hath given understanding to the heart "or soul? (Calmet)
God gives wisdom to man, and an instinct to cocks, (Haydock) or the skill, of which the former is deprived, (Worthington) to know the approach of day. (Du Hamel)
