Iyov Chapt 28



Interesting chapter

SO without going into 'others' opinions. After reading this 'what does it tell you personally'?

1. For silver has a mine, and gold has a place where it is refined.

2. Iron is taken from earth and copper is smelted from stone.

3. He made an end to darkness, and every end He fathoms-a stone of darkness and the shadow of death.

4. A stream burst forth from the place of its flow; those who cause the foot to be forgotten are removed, yea, from man they are lifted up.

5. A land from which bread emerged, and its place was as though turned into fire.

6. Its stones [were] a place of sapphire, and it had gold dust.

7. A path unknown to brigands and which the eye of a vulture did not see.

8. Proud beasts did not tread it, neither did a lion pass by it.

9. He stretched His hand upon the flinty rock; He turned it over from the root of the mountains.

10. In the rocks, He split rivers, and His eye saw all precious things.

11. He bound up the depths of the rivers, and [from] Taalumah He brings out light.

12. But wisdom-whence will it be found, and where is the place of understanding?

13. No mortal knows its value, and it will not be found in the land of the living.

14. The deep says, "It is not in me," and the sea says, "It is not with me."

15. Fine gold cannot be given in its place, neither can silver be weighed out as its price.

16. It cannot be praised with jewelry of Ophir, with precious onyx and sapphire.

17. Neither gold nor glass can equal it, nor is a pure golden vessel its exchange.

18. Coral and crystal cannot be mentioned, and the striving for wisdom [is more precious] than pearls.

19. The topaz of Kush cannot equal it; it cannot be praised with jewelry of pure gold.

20. Now whence does wisdom come, and where is the place of understanding?

21. It is hidden from the eyes of all living, and it is concealed from the winged creatures of the heavens.

22. Destruction and death said, "With our ears we heard its report."

23. God understood its way, and He knew its place.

24. For He looks to the ends of the earth, and He sees under all the heavens.

25. To make a weight for the wind, and He meted out the water with a measure,

26. when He made a decree for the rain and a way for the clouds [and] the thunders.

27. Then He saw and counted it, prepared it, yea, searched it out.

28. And He said to man, 'Behold, the fear of the Lord is wisdom and shunning evil is understanding.' "

interesting how this unfolds........

what lesson or awareness does this help each with?
it shares that knowledge is what reveals the understanding promised by god

there is no greater pursuit or gift that can be bestowed

knowledge allows each to know truth; life, compassion and God

grounding foundation is within the 'name'

'if existence only works ONE way, then the math is the 'name' to know'

the promise of comprehension is the last chapter to mankind.


and good luck
3. He made an end to darkness, and every end He fathoms-a stone of darkness and the shadow of death.

saw this in another area and remembered

seems to observe 'light' as the energy between all mass offers a view

"mass: energy affixed in time"

the three may interrelate enabling the unveiling (understanding)

Just writing as i see a 'spark' within the combining of material knowledge

hope not to offend; just sharing
