Job 41:26-29



26 The sword [chereb] of him that layeth [nasag] at him cannot hold [quwm]: the spear [chaniyth], the dart [macca`], nor the habergeon [shiryown].

27 He esteemeth [chashab] iron [barzel] as straw [teben], and brass [nachuwshah] as rotten [riqqabown] wood [`ets].

28 The arrow [ben] [qesheth] cannot make him flee [barach]: slingstones ['eben] [qela`] are turned [haphak] with him into stubble [qash].

29 Darts [towthach] are counted [chashab] as stubble [qash]: he laugheth [sachaq] at the shaking [ra`ash] of a spear [kiydown]. KJV-Interlinear



26 'The sword that reaches him cannot avail; Nor the spear, the dart, or the javelin. 27 'He regards iron as straw, Bronze as rotten wood. 28 'The arrow cannot make him flee; Slingstones are turned into stubble for him. 29 'Clubs are regarded as stubble; He laughs at the rattling of the javelin. NASB



Though the nature of the beast is real and obvious. Though the outcome of any confrontation is certain. There are many who will defy the repercussions of their actions and take on the monster, head to head.


The beast is the Leviathan mentioned in the Bible. We don't have any animal named as such in our current day, so we use the term beast or monster or crocodile, the large kind, to make these descriptions more real and understandable to us. The croc in this case is twenty feet long, six feet high and weighing over 2000 pounds.


But the Word of God is here for our instruction in life. We may be learning of the real dread of a croc, but the real lesson is of the dangers of the world and a life without God.


The world of the jungle is one of no rules. That is to say, no rules that benefit any human being.


But when God is ignored, then people will try as they may, to take on the jungle with whatever tools, weapons, innovation, or imagination they have at their disposal.


And so we examine the weapons used to fight against the monster of the jungle.


The sword, the spear, the dart, the javelin, or arrows, all of these provide offensive combat weapons for fights close in, at medium distances, or at longer ranges. The iron and bronze refer to the defensive weapons, such as the shield or breastplate. Anything that a soldier might use to protect himself.


What attitude does the monster take toward these weapons? He laughs. They are as useless as straw in a battle to the death. Mans attitude, mans shouting, mans boasting of superiority or sovereignty over his own destiny, are but jokes to the beast.


And that is the attitude of the world toward humanity. Man is nothing more than a speck of dust. How can dust rule anything? How can dust control anything? And that is the ultimate lesson.


Without God in your life, without God in your life in the right way, and not in some way which you conveniently define for yourself, then your life is no better off than if you were standing right in front of a huge angry, hungry crocodile. You lose. You will always lose. You will never win.
