Let us therefore note well that God wanted to humiliate us here, and correct that pride which is in us, the more so because we cannot keep ourselves within measure. Why is that? Because we do not think either of him or of his works. But there is no need for us to mount up as high as God’s majesty, to be humiliated; the beasts can teach us, they will be our masters; for we are not worthy of other doctors to instruct us than these.
John Calvin, Commentary on Job
