Job 41:30-32



30 Sharp [chadduwd] stones [cheres] are under him: he spreadeth [raphad] sharp pointed things [charuwts] upon the mire [tiyt].

31 He maketh the deep [matsowlah] to boil [rathach] like a pot [ciyr]: he maketh [suwm] the sea [yam] like a pot of ointment [merqachah].

32 He maketh a path [nathiyb] to shine ['owr] after ['achar] him; one would think [chashab] the deep [tahowm] to be hoary [seybah]. KJV-Interlinear



30 'His underparts are like sharp potsherds; He spreads out like a threshing sledge on the mire. 31 'He makes the depths boil like a pot; He makes the sea like a jar of ointment. 32 'Behind him he makes a wake to shine; One would think the deep to be gray-haired. NASB



The Leviathan, the beast, the crocodile as we have been calling him, fears none of the weapons that man or nature can hurl against him.


Even his soft underbelly is not sensitive to broken glass or potsherds. He is as comfortable resting on sharp objects as he is on soft soil. His is oblivious to the nature of his circumstances, indifferent to everything, interested only in his immediate wants and needs.


When he swims through the waters, he moves with such force, that he stirs up the mud and water, leaving a wake of bubbles and mud, which are easy to follow, if one were to track and pursue such a beast. But, the water would be so filled with mud and debris that you could not swim in it or see anything if you were in the water.


Because he fears nothing, he does not even attempt to conceal his tracks or the motion of his movements.


And so it is with the world. It conceals nothing, but mingles its deceit and terror out in the open where any discerning person can recognize its muddy mire and character.


But unfortunately, there are many who see the state of the world and yet they pursue it anyway, to their own demise.


Like the crocodile, the world is huge and powerful, but its power comes not from truth, but from its own God given strength.


But unlike the crocodile, who uses its attributes to function in a manner for its own survival, the world uses or rather misuses its attributes for deception and destruction of anything and everything. The crocodile wants to perpetuate its own life. The world wants to destroy everything.


God is the author of the world and the crocodile, which by the way, were not created destructive. Satan is the author of the destructive nature of the world and all things.


Both the world and the crocodile became destructive when sin entered into the world, in the Garden.


Just as one cannot see the light of day when the crocodile stirs up the muddy waters, so too, humanity cannot see the light of truth when sin stirs up our view of life and when humanity chooses to swim within that muddy realm.
