5 Which is
as a bridegroom [chathan] coming out [yatsa'] of his
chamber, [chuppah] and rejoiceth [suws] as a strong man [gibbowr]
to run [ruwts] a race. ['orach] KJV-Interlinear
5 Which is
as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run
his course. NASB
Chamber, 'chuppah,' is a reference to the bride chamber or canopy or closet, wherein the bride and groom consummate their marriage.
In the morning at first light, after the couple has had their nights activities, then the bridegroom arises, dresses in the spendor of victory and joy, and emerges out of the chamber with renewed vigor and youth.
That is the picture being used here of the sun rising each morning, in its bright splendor, looking forward to a full and invigorating day ahead.
In the second illustration, the sun is compared to an athlete, strong, prepared, well trained, eager and ready for the athletic event before him.
The sun has its daily journey before it, a race as it were, and puts forth its full and seemingly endless effort all day until the end of the day, only to rise again to race again, without hesitation, willing and eager to repeat this process, with seemingly endless effort.
Just as the sun has been set in its place by God, so too, doctrine has been set in its place.
The course and purpose and design of the sun cannot be changed by mans efforts or will. Neither can doctrine be modified, ended, or changed by mans efforts, will or design.
Whatever your attitude, whatever your opinions, whatever your desire to have things your way, in opposition to Gods way, you will lose, while Gods will continues unhindered.
To oppose God and His design, His purpose and design and place for your life, regardless of your circumstances, is a fools choice.
