3 Will he make many [rabah] supplications [tachanuwn]
unto thee? will he speak [dabar] soft [rak] words unto thee?
4 Will he make [karath] a covenant [bariyth] with thee? wilt thou take [laqach] him for a servant [`ebed]
for ever [`owlam]?
5 Wilt thou play [sachaq] with him as with a bird [tsippowr]? or wilt thou bind [qashar]
him for thy maidens [na`arah]? KJV-Interlinear
3 'Will he make many
supplications to you? Or will he speak
to you soft words? 4 'Will he make a
covenant with you? Will you take him for
a servant forever? 5 'Will you play with
him as with a bird? Or will you bind him
for your maidens? NASB
If you were able to subdue the beast, would it humble
itself and whisper soft and un-offending words to you as a slave would speak carefully
to a master, so as not to annoy the master?
Will the beast, the leviathan, or crocodile or
something similar, voluntarily submit himself to your service? Will he willingly and enthusiastically want
to do your bidding?
Could you make him a gift to the females in your
periphery, a pet that they could giggle and laugh with as they play? Would he
be a pet that would willingly frolic to entertain? Would you be able to present him in a cage
for the amusement of others, and have him sing and play for their enjoyment?
And of course the whole point of all of this is that
God is able to accomplish these things.
In the Garden, all animal life was there for the
pleasure of Adam and Eve. When sin
entered the world, the whole nature of wildlife changed. And at the end of mans
ruling age, when the Millennium begins, then God will simply command, and all
wildlife will transform back to their peaceful and non-threatening,
non-violent, non-dangerous way of life.
How is all of this accomplished? Did evolution have something to do with the
pattern of animal behavior? No.
God is able to make changes instantly. Environment and time have no bearing on
creation or behavior in these matters.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
