The reason for this condition is clear. God's words are not so much commandments as they are statements of fact — this is the way life is. Man either aligns himself with the world as it was created, or he experiences some or all of the problems of verse 10. Man is by nature a rebel against God (Rom. 5). He despises and disdains the counsel of the most High. This name of God emphasizes His sovereign rulership over all creation as the Creator-God. Its use here amplifies the absurdity of the one created rejecting the advice of the one who made and rules all things
