New Defender's Study Bible Notes
36:27 maketh small the drops. Here is remarkable scientific insight. The drops of water which eventually pour down as rain are, indeed “made small,” first being molecules in the vapor state, then condensing to tiny liquid water droplets in the clouds. These finally coalesce into drops large enough to overcome the updrafts and fall as rain when “by watering He wearieth the thick cloud” (Job 37:11).
36:29 spreading of the clouds. Just how a cloud spreads out from a small cloudlet to become a cloud-covered sky is not fully understood by meteorologists even today.
36:29 the noise of his tabernacle. The usual words for “noise” and “tabernacle” are not used here. The word for noise refers to a sudden crashing noise (evidently thunder associated with the thick cloudbanks) and the tabernacle is something like a specially built lair, from which the sudden attack can be launched.
