September 26 - Job 39.19-40.2

Sponsored by DailyBible Email

19Was it you, Job, who made horses so strong
and gave them their flowing manes?
20Did you make them leap like locusts
and frighten people with their snorting?
21They eagerly paw the ground in the valley;
they rush into battle with all their strength.
22They do not know the meaning of fear,
and no sword can turn them back.
23The weapons which their riders carry
rattle and flash in the sun.
24Trembling with excitement, the horses race ahead;
when the trumpet blows, they can't stand still.
25At each blast of the trumpet they snort;
they can smell a battle before they get near,
and they hear the officers shouting commands.

26Does a hawk learn from you how to fly
when it spreads its wings toward the south?
27Does an eagle wait for your command
to build its nest high in the mountains?
28It makes its home on the highest rocks
and makes the sharp peaks its fortress.
29From there it watches near and far
for something to kill and eat.
30Around dead bodies the eagles gather,
and the young eagles drink the blood.

Job 40 1-2Job, you challenged Almighty God;
will you give up now, or will you answer?
