Job 9:5-7 King James Version (KJV)
5 Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.

6 Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

7 Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.


Job 9:5-7 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

5 He is the onewho moves mountains, and they do not knowhow,
who overturns them in his anger.
6 He is the onewho shakestheearth from its place,
and its pillars tremble.
7 He is the onewho commands the sun, and it does not rise,
and he seals up the stars.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.


5 God has the power to move all the earth; we refer to them as earthquakes. God does not always bring earthquakes because of anger. God has all the power of the earth and heaven.


6 The pillars that support the earth, while in Job it is mentioned that the earth is stationary in the heavens not being held up Job, is referring to pillars that hold the earth up, this is a metaphor saying that God can shake the foundations of the earth, this happened before Job’s time with the flood and God’s reaction at Babel which shook the world and changed it forever.


7 God can keep the sun from rising but He does not, He lets it rise on the just and unjust. There are times that we can not see stars shining and see them only at certain times but Job is more saying that God can have a stars light be burned out. We as Christians should not let us be like the stars that are burned out but be like the earth in verse 6 and move as He moves us.
