Job 38:31-33



31 Canst thou bind [qashar] the sweet influences [ma`adannah] of Pleiades [Kiymah], or loose [pathach] the bands [mowshakah] of Orion [Kaciyl]?

32 Canst thou bring forth [yatsa'] Mazzaroth [mazzarah] in his season [`eth]? or canst thou guide [nachah] Arcturus [`Ayish] with his sons [ben]?

33 Knowest [yada`] thou the ordinances [chuqqah] of heaven [shamayim]? canst thou set [suwm] the dominion [mishtar] thereof in the earth ['erets]? KJV-Interlinear



31 'Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades, Or loose the cords of Orion? 32 'Can you lead forth a constellation in its season, And guide the Bear with her satellites? 33 'Do you know the ordinances of the heavens, Or fix their rule over the earth? NASB



Pleiades is the constellation that announces the beginning of spring. Orion is the constellation which ushers in the beginning of winter.


Bear is the Big Dipper or Arcturus, or Ursa Major as it is called, rotates around the North Polar region as though an invisible finger is stirring, from above, the stars around in a circle. Her satellites are the stars of her tail which she appears to lead around the heavens.


The constellations, or 'mazzarah' in the plural, is a reference to the many and various constellations that appear throughout the year, in their respective seasons.


And finally the 'ordinances of the heavens,' and their relationship (rule over) with planet earth covers all of the probably infinite rules and laws, and principles, which we have discovered in science, that seem to be operating in this universe.


From the weather and things common to our everyday lives, to the vast infinity of the universe, what is it that man has command over?


We cannot place the stars. We cannot arrange the stars. We cannot guide their movement or time of appearance.


And yet the seven stars of Pleiades, the twelve points of the zodiac or constellations, the timing of their appearance in the four seasons of this earth, let alone their interactions between themselves as well as this planet, is a subject that even today, far exceeds mans knowledge.


Theories galore attempt to explain all of these things. Whether simple coincidence or mans imagination, this list is an endless one.


However, there is one undisputable fact explained here. That God has established a relationship between the stars and this planet earth. Though we presume that this relationship is one of timing, of compass related charting, and so forth, here God states that the entire universe is out there because of us, and for no other reason.


These stars do not provide signs of seasons, and other things, for any other planet in this entire universe. We alone are special. That is their relationship, their rule, specifically with earth.


Before man existed, God prepared a place for us to live out this first phase of our lives. That is our physical life here on this earth.


God designed the universe in all of its vastness and complexities from black holes to neutron stars, to the constellation arrangements. God designed our planet with all of its complexities. God designed our physical bodies with all of our complex bodily functions.


God has gone to great lengths, most of which we have yet to discover, in order to prepare for each one of us, this 'temporary' home. And emphasize that this is a temporary home. Imagine what the next home, the permanent one in eternity, will be like. Actually, that is probably beyond our imagination capabilities.


So, what can man do that would be better than what God has already done? What can you do with your life, that God has not already made provision for?


If man cannot control or even influence his own immediate environment, how can he have any affect on the universe?
