Job 28:25



25 To make [`asah] the weight [mishqal] for the winds [ruwach]; and he weigheth [takan] the waters [mayim] by measure [middah]. KJV-Interlinear



25 'When He imparted weight to the wind, And meted out the waters by measure, NASB



We need to visit Isaiah in order to get a little more information. And remember that Isaiah lived many centuries, almost two-thousand years, after Job.


Isa. 40:12

2 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, And marked off the heavens by the span, And calculated the dust of the earth by the measure, And weighed the mountains in a balance, And the hills in a pair of scales? NASB


God, when He created the universe, and when He restored the earth, measured out everything. From the balance of the atmosphere, to the exact scientific principles which rule all things.


God weighed out the wind. He set the atmosphere in its place in order to support life, both plants and animals. The atmosphere consists of a balance of gases. The atmosphere possesses weight and pressure. None too great, none too small, such that all life can exist and flourish on this planet.


Job lived a very long time. He no doubt traveled to high elevations as well as the lower elevations. He would have noticed the difference in air pressure and even the thinness of air in the upper altitudes.


Presumably he did not know of air pressure, nor even of the components of the air (oxygen, nitrogen, etc.). There would be no way for him to know of them. But here his words emphasize the methodology and preciseness, the planning and the design, which God employed in creating and maintaining the atmosphere.


The wind gives strength to plants by bending them in its breezes. The winds drive the clouds, the rain, storms and such. The wind knocks the leaves out of the trees in the fall, and aids in the pollination of plants in the spring. It provides all living things air to breathe, and carries evaporated waters to the far corners of the globe.


And though the wind cannot be seen, we all know that it exists, and that it possesses great power and purpose.


Likewise, water has been measured out by God. The planet is three-quarters water and only one-fourth dry land. Again, Job could only know what he has observed and discussed with his peers.


He would not know of the recently discovered under ocean conveyor current which circumnavigates the entire planet. The oceans separate the continents. These separations aid in the establishment of weather patterns and trends throughout history. Most of which we are only in the beginning stages of our understanding.


These two things are probably among the most obvious things which all of humanity can view and wonder about.


And yet man did not invent, design, measure or maintain the atmosphere or the oceans of the world. God did this. With this knowledge, ability, and power, shouldn't God be considered as the authority in wisdom?
