Job 12:9 -Bible Commentary
“Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
In Job 12:9 , Job is acknowledging that mankind is unable to know all of the ways of God, is telling Zophar (and all of us today) that because of all that God has done, and by our truly observing His creation, and feeling its pain and suffering though our empathy, we can know all that we need to know about Him.
This is very similar to what Paul wrote to the Romans in Romans 1:20…
20. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
Mankind should never have to question whether or not God created everything. All of creation speaks to us of that fact.
Surely we should be able to feel the pain and suffering of the millions of humans and billions of animals who die every year in this world because of our human violence and indifference, and know that God doesn’t want us to live this way. Furthermore, we should also feel the groaning of our environment in the increased weather patters we are having because of the global warming we humans have mostly caused, and realize that we have failed to protect God’s creation as He charged us to do way back in Eden.
