The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJob 37:17
How thy garments [are] warm, when he quieteth the earth by
the south [wind]?
] One should think there is no great difficulty in
accounting for this, that a man's clothes should be warm, and he so hot
as not to be able to bear them, but obliged to put them off in the
summer season, when only the south wind blows, which brings heat, a
serene sky, and fine weather, (Luke 12:55) ; and yet there is something in
the concourse of divine Providence attending these natural causes, and
his blessing with them, without which the garment of a man will not be
warm, or at least not warming to him, (Haggai 1:6) ; or
``how thy garments are warm when the land is still from the
as Mr. Broughton renders the words; that is, how it is when the earth
is still from the whirlwinds of the south; or when that wind does not
blow which brings heat, but northerly winds in the winter time; that
then a man's garments should be warm, and keep him warm.
