TO THOSE WHO FANCY
DARWIN'S THEORY OF EVOLUTION;

AND WHO CHOOSE NOT TO
'REMEMBER THEIR CREATOR',

AND ALSO TO THOSE WHO
IN A DAY OF TRIBULATION
BECOME DARK AND MOROSE,

AND CARE TO QUESTION GOD,

- - - - HE HIMSELF,
HAS A FEW QUESTIONS TO ASK.

THE BOOK OF JOB: Chapter 38

38:1 Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind:

38:2 "Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words?

38:3 Brace yourself,
because I have some questions for you,
The 'CIRCLE of the EARTH'. -Job. 40:22. 
- from the GALILEO SPACE PROBE - NASA and you must answer them.

38:4 "Where were you, when I
laid the foundations of the earth?

------ Tell me, if you know so much.

38:5 Do you know how its
dimensions were determined?
. . . And who did the surveying?

38:6 What supports its foundations,
and who laid its cornerstone

38:7 as the morning stars sang together
and all the angels shouted for joy?

38:8 "Who defined
the boundaries of the sea
as it burst from the womb,

38:9 and as I clothed it
with clouds and thick darkness?

38:10 For I locked it behind barred gates,
limiting its shores.

38:11 I said, 'Thus far and no farther will you come.
Here your proud waves must stop!'

38:12 "Have you ever commanded the morning to appear
and caused the dawn to rise in the east?

38:13 Have you ever told the daylight
to spread to the ends of the earth,
to bring an end to the night's wickedness?

38:14 For the features of the earth take shape
as the light approaches, and the dawn is robed in red.

38:15 The light disturbs the haunts of the wicked,
and it stops the arm that is raised in violence.

38:16 "Have you explored the springs from which the seas come?
Have you walked about and explored their depths?

38:17 Do you know where the gates of death are located?
Have you seen the gates of utter gloom?

38:18 Do you realize the extent of the earth?
Tell me about it if you know!

38:19 "Where does the light come from,
and where does the darkness go?

38:20 Can you take it to its home?
Do you know how to get there?

38:21 But of course you know all this!
For you were born before it was all created,
and you are so very experienced!

38:22 "Have you visited the treasuries of the snow?
Have you seen where the hail is made and stored?

38:23 I have reserved it for the time of trouble,
for the day of battle and war.

38:24 Where is the path to the origin of light?
Where is the home of the east wind?

38:25 "Who created a channel for the torrents of rain?
Who laid out the path for the lightning?

38:26 Who makes the rain fall on barren land,
in a desert where no one lives?

38:27 Who sends the rain that satisfies the parched ground
and makes the tender grass spring up?

38:28 "Does the rain have a father?
Where does dew come from?

38:29 Who is the mother of the ice?
Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens?

38:30 For the water turns to ice as hard as rock,
and the surface of the water freezes.

The PLEIADES or 'Seven Sisters

38:31 "Can you hold back the movements of the stars?
Are you able to restrain the Pleiades or Orion?

38:32 Can you ensure the proper sequence of the seasons
or guide the constellation of the Bear
with her cubs across the heavens?

38:33 Do you know the laws of the universe
and how God rules the earth?

38:34 "Can you shout to the clouds and make it rain?

38:35 Can you make lightning appear
and cause it to strike as you direct it?

The CONSTELLATION of ORION

38:36 Who gives intuition and instinct?

38:37 Who is wise enough to count all the clouds?
Who can tilt the water jars of heaven,

38:38 turning the dry dust to clumps of mud?

38:39 "Can you stalk prey for a lioness
and satisfy the young lions' appetites

38:40 as they lie in their dens
or crouch in the thicket?

38:41 Who provides food for the ravens
when their young cry out to God
as they wander about in hunger?

Job 39

39:1 "Do you know when the mountain goats give birth?
Have you watched as the wild deer are born?

39:2 Do you know how many months they carry their young?
Are you aware of the time of their delivery?

39:3 They crouch down to give birth to their young
and deliver their offspring.

39:4 Their young grow up in the open fields,
then leave their parents and never return.

39:5 "Who makes the wild donkey wild?

39:6 I have placed it in the wilderness;
its home is the wasteland.

39:7 It hates the noise of the city,
and it has no driver to shout at it.

39:8 The mountains are its pastureland,
where it searches for every blade of grass.

39:9 "Will the wild ox consent to being tamed?
Will it stay in your stall?

39:10 Can you hitch a wild ox to a plow?
Will it plow a field for you?

39:11 Since it is so strong, can you trust it?
Can you go away and trust the ox to do your work?

39:12 Can you rely on it to return,
bringing your grain to the threshing floor?

39:13 "The ostrich flaps her wings grandly,
but they are no match for the feathers of the stork.

39:14 She lays her eggs on top of the earth,
letting them be warmed in the dust.

39:15 She doesn't worry that a foot might crush them
or that wild animals might destroy them.

39:16 She is harsh toward her young,
as if they were not her own.
She is unconcerned though they die,

39:17 for God has deprived her of wisdom.
He has given her no understanding.

39:18 But whenever she jumps up to run,
she passes the swiftest horse with its rider.

39:19 "Have you given the horse its strength
or clothed its neck with a flowing mane?

39:20 Did you give it the ability to leap forward like a locust?
Its majestic snorting is something to hear!

39:21 It paws the earth and rejoices in its strength.
When it charges to war,

39:22 it is unafraid.
It does not run from the sword.

39:23 The arrows rattle against it,
and the spear and javelin flash.

39:24 Fiercely it paws the ground
and rushes forward into battle
when the trumpet blows.

39:25 It snorts at the sound of the bugle.
It senses the battle even at a distance.
It quivers at the noise of battle
and the shout of the captain's commands.

39:26 "Are you the one who makes the hawk soar
and spread its wings to the south?

39:27 Is it at your command that the eagle rises to the heights
to make its nest?

39:28 It lives on the cliffs,
making its home on a distant, rocky crag.

39:29 From there it hunts its prey,
keeping watch with piercing eyes.

39:30 Its nestlings gulp down blood,
for it feeds on the carcass of the slaughtered."

Job 40

40:1 Then the LORD said to Job,

40:2 "Do you still want to argue with the Almighty?

You are God's critic,

but do you have the answers?"


 

40:3 Then Job replied to the LORD,

40:4 "I am nothing

how could I ever find the answers?

I will put my hand over my mouth in silence.

40:5 I have said too much already.

I have nothing more to say."
