39 Wilt thou hunt [tsuwd] the prey [tereph] for the
lion [labiy']? or fill [male'] the appetite [chay] of the
young lions [kaphiyr],
40 When they couch [shachach] in their dens [ma`ownah],
and abide [yashab] in the covert [cukkah] to [lamow] lie in wait ['ereb]? KJV-Interlinear
39 'Can you hunt the prey for the
lion, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, 40 When they crouch in their
dens, And lie in wait in their lair? NASB
When God made the animals, He gave them knowledge of
the times and the seasons. He gave them
knowledge, which we would call instincts so that they could discern their prey
and those who would prey upon them. So
that they would be able to pursue their prey, eat, and survive, or blend in
with their environment and likewise survive by avoiding capture.
Animals were given the power, and cunning, and speed
with which to stalk and capture. And not
only secure food or safety for themselves, but for their young as well.
Does man have the wherewithal to accomplish these
kinds of things? Does man have the
ability to see to the needs of every living creature?
And the answer to those questions is, 'No.' Man is barely able to document the many
different kinds of animal life, let alone provide for them.
Environmentalists will try as they may to protect this
species or that, but everything that man does only serves to further endanger
what they wanted to protect as well as placing other related species in
God asks Job, and anyone else who might be listening,
if they had the ability to do these things.
Job certainly did not, and we likewise, do not.
Do we have a list yet, of anything which we can do?
Now is the time to post a prayer.
