Job 39

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by Cosmicwaffle, Sep 5, 2014.

  1. I find it amazing how after all of Job's sorrows and questions to God, he starts by talking about all the creatures he has created. This passage I love

    Job 39:13-25

    13 “The wings of the ostrich flap joyfully,
    though they cannot compare
    with the wings and feathers of the stork.
    14 She lays her eggs on the ground
    and lets them warm in the sand,
    15 unmindful that a foot may crush them,
    that some wild animal may trample them.
    16 She treats her young harshly, as if they were not hers;
    she cares not that her labor was in vain,
    17 for God did not endow her with wisdom
    or give her a share of good sense.
    18 Yet when she spreads her feathers to run,
    she laughs at horse and rider.
    19 “Do you give the horse its strength
    or clothe its neck with a flowing mane?
    20 Do you make it leap like a locust,
    striking terror with its proud snorting?
    21 It paws fiercely, rejoicing in its strength,
    and charges into the fray.
    22 It laughs at fear, afraid of nothing;
    it does not shy away from the sword.
    23 The quiver rattles against its side,
    along with the flashing spear and lance.
    24 In frenzied excitement it eats up the ground;
    it cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.
    25 At the blast of the trumpet it snorts, ‘Aha!’
    It catches the scent of battle from afar,
    the shout of commanders and the battle cry.

    I love how God says in verse 17

    "For God did not endow her with wisdom or give her a share of good sense."

    Strengthening the fact that God is in control of his Creation, and every good thing is from the LORD.
    Mere Jay, KingJ and Abdicate says Amen and like this.
