Reader comment on item: Caught My Eye - Noteworthy Quotes

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), May 25, 2007 at 19:05

The comment on Biblical phrases by Hugh Fitzgerald (Annals of Christian Zionism: De Witt Talmage, Outpost 2003) might have also included some verses from Job, beginning Job 38:4: Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if thou hast understanding. 5) Who hath laid the measures of it, if thou knowest? Or who hath stretched the line upon it? 6) Whereupon are its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone,7) When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? (This was after Job 's outpourings to God and Elihu's monologue. I'm sure that shut them up) .

Also Psalms 147:4: He appointeth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Man is obsessed with the universe beyond and it breaks my heart to think of those who have died trying to understand it. God doesn't want us to always understand everything in this world, He just wants us to believe.
