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.
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
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
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?
Now is the time to post a prayer.
