“Then the Lord answered Job out of the Whirlwind.”
“Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind;” a magnificent design, wonderful in conception and in execution. Job and his wife kneel with tranquil, uplifted faces, and with folded hands, while the Lord speaks from the whirlwind, in which he is wrapped as in a garment, while the edges sweep round Job and his awe-stricken friends. The imaginative realism of Blake displays itself here in its full force. The whirling sweep of the border adds to the effect of the main subject.
