[Wesley’s Notes on Job 38:14]
38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
38:14 It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.
38:14 It – The earth. Turned – Is changed in its appearance. By the seal – The seal makes a beautiful impression upon the clay, which in itself hath no form, or comeliness. So the earth, which in the darkness of night lies like a confused heap without either form or beauty, when the light arises and shines upon it, appears in excellent order and glory. They – The men and things of the earth, whether natural, as living creatures, herbs and trees; or artificial, as houses or other buildings. Stand – Present themselves to our view. Garment – Wherewith the earth is in a manner clothed and adorned.
