Job 40-42

Job 40:15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.

:16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
:17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
:18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
:19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
:20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
:21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.
:22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.
:23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
:24 He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

41:1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?

:2 Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?
:3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?
:4 Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?
:5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?
:6 Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?
:7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?
:8 Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.
:9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?
:10 None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?
:11 Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.
:12 I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.
:13 Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?
:14 Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.
:15 His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.
:16 One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.
:17 They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.
:18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
:19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.
:20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.
:21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.
:22 In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.
:23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.
:24 His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.
:25 When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.
:26 The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.
:27 He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.
:28 The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble.
:29 Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.
:30 Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire.
:31 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.
:32 He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.
:33 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.
:34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.
   Read these two chapters again! Chapter 40: Isn't that talking about a dinosaur? Chapter 41: A Dragon? Think about it. Isn't it possible that while the people were living HUNDREDS of years, the animals were too? Couldn't they have gotten so big that they became the animals we call dinosaurs?

Job 42:10 ...... also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

:11 Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.
:12 So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
:13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.
:14 And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.
:15 And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.
:16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations.
:17 So Job died, being old and full of days.
   Isn't that AWESOME?!!

Tomorrow's chapters will be 1 Samuel 16-20.

  1. I've always held that Leviathan and Behemoth are dinosaurs. :) My hubby didn't at first, but when I had him actually read it he realized the footnotes saying elephant and crocodile sound like such ridiculous ideas when you actually read what it says. :) There WERE dinosaurs, we have the fossils to prove it. So either God didn't create everything like He said, or God must have created them when He created the other animals, so therefore they were around in Bible times. Stands to reason with such huge critters about that they would be mentioned somewhere. And of course they would have just been animals to them like we think of cows or giraffes and they would not have called them "dinosaurs." Adam would have given each kind a name when he named the other animals. Perhaps that name was Leviathan, Behemoth, etc.
    I think there's a reference to Leviathan churning up the sea in Isaiah? I cannot for the life of me remember where now though. I would have to look it up. But I have sick babies needing me now so I must go! Hope you are well! :)
