Points of Interest in Job 38

I’d like to point out some of the marvelous elements in the book of Job Chpt 38…I have made some comments in parenthesis( )

11″And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?”

12″Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;”

13″That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?”

(This could be the earliest reference to plate techtonics /plate fault lines and earthquakes?)

14″It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.”

15″And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.”

16″Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?”

17″Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?”

18″Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.”

19″Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof, “

(People of course did not know about photons or space-time/nuclear fusion etc.)

20″That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?”

(They would learn about electrons and electricity one day)

21″Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?”

24″By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?”

(How was light refracted, and how do diurnal winds form)

25″Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;”

(How did the i.e.Grand Canyon and other water/valley cuts form…how does sound travel through the atmosphere)

26″To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;”

27″To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?”

28″Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?”

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

(This may reference all the ice of the solar system’s Oort clouds that gave the oceans to Earth and other residual water on Mars etc. of the 11 or 12 planets Pluto and Lila as well as several moons anmost comets are just frozen water/ice. Today astrophysicists have theories about how it may have formed)

30″The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.”

(This is a facinating possible reference to the near absolute zero temperature of space, and certainly the missing mass of the Universe is a problem for astrophysicists today. yet even the water out there in distant galxies is frozen solid in many instances and hard to locate)

31Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

(Following the interesting references to water in the Oort Cloud or Kuiper Belt areas, the itinerary travels farther out into interstellar space…and on to Arcturus)…

32″Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?”

(Mankind still hasn’t the power to set the course around the galaxy of stars significantly, or really even a little bit…maybe one day before the age of the gentiles is fullfilled)
