12 I will not conceal [charash] his parts [bad], nor his
power [gabuwrah] [dabar], nor his comely [chiyn]
13 Who can discover [galah] the face [paniym] of his
garment [labuwsh]? or who can come [bow'] to him with his double [kephel] bridle [recen]?
14 Who can open [pathach] the doors [deleth] of his face [paniym]? his
teeth [shen] are terrible ['eymah] round about [cabiyb]. KJV-Interlinear
12 'I will not keep silence
concerning his limbs, Or his mighty strength, or his orderly frame. 13 'Who can strip off his outer armor? Who can come within his double mail? 14 'Who can open the doors of his face? Around his teeth there is terror. NASB
From verse 12 to verse 32, God describes the large
animal in detail, not just to give us all an anatomy lesson in crocodiles and
the like, but to teach us all that it is God who designed and created this
animal, and created him out of simple dust.
The magnificence of the animal, the hugeness of something
made to come to life, and survive, and have an intelligence, though limited,
but sufficient to survive many thousands of years on this planet without the
aid of man, or science, or technology, or any of those things.
In comparison, man has built great buildings, and
bridges, and technology, but these are not life entities. These have no
instincts, these have no procreation abilities, these have no means of
But, just as mans construction and invention came with
a designer and an inventor, so too, all of life came into being by means of a
designer - namely God. Nothing in life
occurred by accident. There are just too
many ingredients, to many characteristics, too many attributes among the many
life forms, to have begun by sheer accident.
And so God will not keep silent regarding the anatomy
of the beast. God will not hide in
secrets, the makeup of the beast. All is
there for man to observe and investigate, and then conclude that the power and
intelligence of God is far superior to that of man, and this is only from a
description of a simple animal. What
then do we conclude regarding physics, dimensions, sub-atomic things, even
The huge animal has a powerful frame. The huge animal has great strength. The huge animal is organized within its
design and makeup.
Who then can strip away is outer layers, and discover
its inner design, in order to duplicate it?
Who would dare to pry open its jaws to examine its
teeth, to command it to submit to such an examination, without fear of being
torn apart in a terrifying and certain death?
Now is the time to post a prayer.
