Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

38:29 Out of whose womb. This unusual picture of a sheet of ice slowly coming forward as if emerging from a womb may well refer to the ice sheet of the great Ice Age that covered the northern latitudes for many centuries following the Flood. The book of Job has more references to snow, ice and cold than any other book of the Bible.

38:29 gendered. That is, “generated.”
