EVOLUTION/Personal Truth

Many questions, many answers. And I have much more, but have not known how to put it all into words. Some of it is far more advanced than we have been given to understand. I have been given a true gift. While researching Bat Kol, I realized that many things I have known throughout my life,(prophecies,) and still learn, (prophecy,) did/does not originate with me but it has been continuous since early childhood.
This has been being monitored by a reliable witness for the last 6 years and I have never been wrong. Never. Even with many things thought to be impossible or improbable. Rabbis with whom I have tried to speak are too steeped in tradition to open their minds to understanding that the Old Testament is far, far more explanatory than its prose and poetry form would allow one to surmise. It is as if all the words, even those that weren't there, all the true meaning, had somehow clarified in my mind and I KNEW it was true. The logic was absolute, and has been throughout the entire time. Clarity that I honestly do not perceive in the mind of man, and a profound sense of frustration that man has not passed the true test of humanity by understanding the reality of it all.
One Yeshiva Rabbi berated me for quoting from non-Hebrew Scriptures, Genisis 6. I asked him who were the sons of G-d. I had to produce the text from my Bible which is the 1943 Edition of Hebrew Scriptures, JPS.
He told me he had not even realized that was in there, so, of course, he had no answers.
The Nephilim were dinosaurs, not men of renown as so many people have surmised. Job is the explanation of all of these things.
The Book of Job is a rule book given to us as a guide, as well as the history of how the gift of MIND, (understanding,) was passed to us, and how evolution was facillitated over many generations because of the infusion of a DNA alien to earth,(e.g., SONS of G-d,) passed down through generations by Mitachondrial DNA because the fathers are not present. Job is an all encompassing word for MAN. The afflictions described in Job were generations of transitions and did not happen in a single lifetime. It also opens up many vistas because the interpretation of the Spirit which G-d said would not abide in us forever is not true. It abides with us because it is our birthright. It means that we have not understood our own potential, have literally been prevented from doing so, by those who in ancient times had no clue, and no one has disabused us of this notion because the power remains in the hands of those who stopped us from learning many thousands of years ago.
No one cares to disabuse us of that notion even now because that good old time tradition dictates we are what we are and can be no better. They have placed themselves in the way of our uplifting and call it righteous. I call it holding on to a power it was never theirs to hold.
Those who say they believe in G-d worship men, and man can never do what he is supposed to do as long as the *believers* control what our knowledge of G-d is.
Job is far older than the Septaguint, spoken to, and by early humans, and passed on to this day. It was never understood, and yet it is completely descriptive, not a lesson in obedience or faith at all. Job spanned generations. It is a history, full and complete, of the Dawn of Humanity, but terribly misplaced because no one understood, and by the time things got written down, the words still SEEMED important, but the meaning had been they made of it an allegory, a biblical Aesop's Fable, and added the writer's own version in a place of relative unimportance in the order of things.
The Truth and the Order of things is of utmost importance.
For instance:
The Song of Solomen is believed to be a tale of undying love told in what some say is beautiful poetry. That could not be further from the truth.
The Song of Solomen is a tale of decadence, debauchery, blasphemy, and the resultant fall of Israel as a power. It began with David's greatest sin and Solomen fulfilled the punishment by doing absolutely everything the Lord had commanded NEVER be done.
More about that in posts to come.
Even back in the most ancient of days, humans knew that to go forward was to mate with like kind. In the Day Of Sarah, we were SHOWN that bloodlines must be traced by the Mother. No one had a clue about Mitochondrial DNA, yet going forward was always through women who were specifically chosen for that purpose. But as with all peoples, inbreeding stops forward mobility, so the same Force who chose Sarah, prodded loose from Egypt a myriad of differing peoples with different ethnicities and they were given a set of rules to follow. No racism. Be clean. Eat right. Beware disease. No wasting of the seed. Meld. Multiply.
And so they did, but it was not an accident, it was planned. It was not without rigors and many did not make it through. Two generations of them passed before they were considered a People. So many rules and Laws for such a band of wanderers. I Am swore allegiance to them, and they to I Am. The result was a gene pool that could not help but go forward.
Alas, when I Am departed from them....But that is yet another story.
From 2002:************************
If you read "Job" without the flowery Biblical prose, you will realize that it was a manual given/spoken to us long before the Bible was ever written. It speaks of behemoths, (dinosaurs,) and describes the cooling of the earth's crust. It was somehow changed into an allegory about a righteous man, but that was not what it was meant to be. It was the way to follow the path to actual humanity. Unfortunately, many of us didn't get that far.
Years ago, when I first asked my Rabbi about Gen: 6, and he told me I could not possibly be reading from a Hebrew Bible, I showed him, but he still had no answers. He isn't the only one, because unfortunately, even my people have forgotten G-d's FIRST LAW handed down through countless generations before it was ever written. To be Human requires conscience. To STAY Human requires learning. They learned what men taught, but not what the Sons of G-d required. The requirements are in the Book of Job. You still have not learned.
Job is an absolute history of what happened when humanity had finally taken the different path from the families of *men* they had been bred from.Following Job from the beginning of his travails to the end, you see that he had lost all resemblance to those around him and was utterly, completely, and totally different that his tribe abandoned him to his own devices, literally expecting him to die. This is about Job, but Job is a metaphor for all of those who found themselves having passed through a divergent evolution.
Henceforth JOB=HUMANITY.
Do you know how the earth was formed and how long it took?
Do you know how the planet works?
Have you learned everything there is to know about what is above and what is below the oceans?
Do you know what makes the wind blow?
Do you know WHY you know to wear warm clothes in winter?
Do you know how old G-d is?
Do you know how many other children are in the universe?
Do you understand that G-d has no regard for you; good or bad?
Have you gone through death and returned?
Where is the way to the dwelling of light?
Is there a place for darkness?
Do you know that there are walls in place so that you cannot leave here until you know and understand the way of the Universe enough to satisfy the Sons of G-d?
Those were the questions posed to Job, and all who were before him, and all who came after him.
Do you know all these things, because if you don't, you should.
You were born knowing.That has always been G-d's gift to bring *people* into HUMANITY.
From 2004:****************************
If there is any Book in the Holy Scriptures we should have long since paid more attention to, Job was a history much older than anything was ever written. It is my belief that it was the explanation of, and rule book or guide book, to the first awakened human minds. These *people* were the different ones, the ones whose changes in form and thought were too apparent to continue being accepted. They were indeed the sons and daughters of the Sons of G-d. Those parents passed their DNA on to a chosen few amongst an already existing population, who, although socialized into tribes, were not privy to the mind of creation, nor able to create a separate race from within their ranks.
This gift could only be passed on through the female of the species since men cannot have children. Ergo, the existence of Mitochondrial DNA which can only be transferred through the mother. This was the gift.
This was the passing on of an intelligence which did not exist before The Sons of G-d bestowed it upon us. But they didn't give us this gift without conditions and a guide for its use.
In Gen: 6, it not only speaks of the Sons of G-d, but most people do not read it clearly.
To understand Gen: 6, you have to understand that *men* was a reference to bipeds, not humans. To understand , in those days before *human* mind, all groups of things in whatever form, if they were alike, were considered a *people*, even ants. Bipeds were considered *man*.
Though Gen: 6 was written long after Job, it still contains the original sense passed on by traditional word of mouth, until finally written, that we are truly the procreations of The SONS of G-d. The allegories of Adam and Eve were supposed to teach us good from evil, but logic dictates that someone wrote it, so good and evil were already known qualities. Ironically, no one pays attention to the fact that no one ever told that Eve not to eat of KNOWLEDGE. that is yet another story.
Suffice it to say, it was written in a time after Job for what was meant to be the same purpose, but it was radically different. Rather than learn what Job was, we got instead warnings of our impending doom. Mind you, at the same time the writer said the earth had just been born.
I know. It's blasphemy. Excuse me if I don't cringe. You see. I DO believe in G-d. A REAL one, not writers who can't keep their stories straight twice in a row.

Gen 6: 1-4
1. And it came to pass, when men, (NOT HUMANS,) began to multiply on the face of the earth, and DAUGHTERS were born unto them,
2. that the SONS OF G-D, saw the DAUGHTERS of men, *that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they CHOSE
. *Note: THEY took no note whether the females were fair, only that they would nurture their offspring and allow them to grow and procreate with this new, added factor, and they did not KEEP them as wives. Also note the females were CHOSEN, so it was only some, not all.
End note.
3. And the Lord said: 'My *spirit, shall NOT abide with man forever, for that he ALSO is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.'
*Note: meaning that the body containing this spirit could not withstand the part that was ALSO flesh and would wear out. It NEVER said the SPIRIT would die, only the shell that carried it. But that was also an error in logic. Now let us remember that we produce new flesh every day. Billions of cells scale off and become something else. Billions of other tiny things make up our bodies. Imagine what you could do if your brains had not been slammed shut on even the possibilities. Genetically, what we could do is limitless, but we have been told by men never to try. Regeneration is possible. We have seen it and called it a fluke. It isn't.
What was taught us then would have served us well by now if the great philosophers and interpreters hadn't TOLD us what to think, how to think, and why we MUST think they are right. I happen not to.
End note.
4. The *Nephilim were in the earth in those days, AND ALSO AFTER THAT, when the Sons of G-d came in unto the DAUGHTERS of men , and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.
*Note: The Nephilim were an entirely different species. Dinosaurs. This means that dinosaurs were indeed there at the dawn of humanity, and NOT that they were mighty men of old. Remember that this was written down for many generations after the Exodus and that humanity is far older than science has ever given us credit for. Partly because of Scriptures they still don't understand, and partly because *experts* once concluded that humans and dinosaurs never coexisted on earth at any time. That has since been proven wrong, to their chagrin. Unfortunately, dogma has, in many cases, replaced the truth with suppositions and outright lies to suit the contention that humans are as they have always been, and that is not true. What they don't, won't tell you is WHY.
Yet even the most ancient human knew that their intelligence was dependent on women, though DNA was an unknown quantity then. Instinctively, they knew, and so bloodlines have always been followed through who the mother was and her line, not through men and their line. Early humans knew that to continue becoming more intelligent, they MUST mate with like kind, but it was the wanderers in the desert who were made aware of the need for a diverse gene pool. Which brings us to Job, the beginning.
Job is an EXAMPLE of what happened when humanity had finally taken the different path from the families of the *men* they had been bred from. Following Job from the beginning of *his* travails to the end, you see that he had lost all resemblance to those around him and was utterly, completely, and totally different that his tribe abandoned him to his own devices, literally expecting him to die. This is about Job, but Job is a metaphor for all of those who found themselves having passed through a fairly rapid evolution as time goes.
Henceforth JOB=HUMANITY.
You MUST eliminate the flowery prose surrounding Job's story in this book. It didn't exist. It was added long, long after the fact and so badly interpreted that I could not understand how *scholars* could have possibly overlooked its obvious truths . Here are the relevent facts.
From Job; Chapter 1 to 5, in the Hebrew Bible, there is reference to the SONS of G-d having a meeting. There is also reference to Satan, the Adversary, (a SON of G-d,) who was not an adversary as we would think of it. He was the teacher who walked back and forth in the classroom stopping here and there to tap a ruler on your desk to set you straight. He was assigned the authority to remain here to teach and ultimately test the offspring of the SONS of G-d, to guage how well suited they were to continue on their own in spite of their differences with all other living things. He was chosen to teach humans the differences between themselves and test them as to their intelligence, their will, their ingenuity, and ultimately to discern if they were ready to be taught HOW to learn the Laws of the Universe.
(Job 1: verse 6-Now it fell upon a day, that the Sons of G-d came to present themselves before the Lord, and *Satan came also among them.*That is, THE ADVERSARY.
7. And the Lord said unto Satan: 'Whence comest thou?' Then Satan answered the Lord, and said: 'From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.'
8. And the Lord said unto Satan: 'Hast thou considered My servant, Job.....')
Stop there and realize that this was the Biblical translation of separating humanity, (JOB,) from its relative safety from within already established tribal arrangements (apes,) the beginning of the human age.
The Scriptures go on to define absolutely just how much humanity had changed with regard to the *men* from which they came, and encompassed the entire evolutionary cycle from the day the Sons of G-d impregnated the women of men unto the day humans were able to adapt the world to their wants and needs as opposed to those who needed to adapt to the world as it was using only instinct, not human intelligence.
It reveals a lengthy transition which was not understood at the time it was happening. There was immense confusion in the ranks of the *different* ones that lasted many generations. They thought they were accursed. They were driven from their safe havens. They became subject to diseases and bodily changes completely different than anything *man* had ever known. They lost most of their body hair and felt cold for the first time, needing to create for themselves warmth and clothing and an entirely new way of thinking, which led to human speech, and astounding new technologies for their age. There DID come a time, at long last, that they realized their superiority, but as I have explained many times, the G-d within, if not used, atrophies, and what is left is a consciousness without conscience. The soul, the gift, has withered and become useless.
*Job, Chapter 1, verse 12: "And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and KNEW HIM NOT, they lifted up their voice and wept....."
*Note: When animals grieve, and they do, they wail and howl.
Verse 13: So they sat down on the ground with him seven days and seven nights; and none spoke a word unto him, for they saw that his grief was very great.
Chapter 3: After this opened Job his mouth and cursed his day. *And Job spoke and said
: Let the day perish when I was born,
And the night wherein it was said: 'A man-child is brought forth.'
Let that day be darkness.
V, 23 To a man whose way is hid,
And whom G-d has hedged in?
24. For my sighing cometh instead of my food,
And my roarings are poured out like water.
25. For the thing which I did fear is come upon me,
And that which I was afraid of hath overtaken me.
26. I was not at ease, neither was I quiet, neither had I rest;
But trouble came.
* Note: THIS is the beginning of the Great Confusion, the lack of understanding. THIS was ALL of humanity's confusion. They had not yet learned why they were so different and no longer fit with those once their equals. They had become more, but they did not yet understand.
Job 6.
V-11: What is my strength that I should wait?
And what is mine end, that I should be patient?
12. Is my strength the strength of stones?
Or is my flesh of brass?
13. Is it that I have no help in me,
And that sound wisdom is driven quite from me?
V-15: My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook;
As the channel of brooks that overflow
16. Which are black by the reason of the ice,
And wherein the snow hideth itself;
17. What time they wax warm, they vanish,
When it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.
18. The paths of their way do wind,
They go up into the WASTE, and are lost.
19. The caravans of Tema (those who dwelt in the area, unamed then,) looked.
The companies of Sheba, (also unamed then,) waited for them---
20. They were ashamed because they had hoped....(to find him as they were, what had always been before,)
They came thither and were confounded. (And did not understand that he could not change.)
He ALSO did not understand, but he knew they did not like it. So he entreated them, his *people,* to tell him what HE had done wrong.
21. For now ye are become His;
Ye see a terror and are afraid
22. Did I say: 'Give unto me'?
Or: 'Offer a present for me of your substance'?
23. Or; 'Redeem me from the adversary's hand'?
Or: 'Redeem me from the hands of the oppressors'?
24. TEACH ME and I will hold my peace;
And cause me to UNDERSTAND wherein I have erred.
To his teacher:
Chapter 4, V-12: Am I sea, or a sea monster,
That Thou settest a watch over me?
13. When I say: 'My bed shall comfort me,
My couch shall ease my complaint';
14. * Then thou scarest me with dreams,
And terrifiest me through visions;
(*Note: Dawning of diverse thought.)
15. So that my SOUL chooseth strangling,
And death rather than THESE, MY bones.
16. I loathe it; I shall not live always;
Let me alone; for my days are vanity.
17. What is man, that Thou shouldest MAGNIFY him,
And that Thou shouldest SET THY HEART UPON HIM,
18. And that Thou shouldest remember him every morning,
And try him every moment?
20. If I have sinned, what do I unto Thee, O Thou WATCHER of men?
21. Why hast Thou set me as aMARK for Thee,
So that I am a burden to myself?
Chapters 8 and 9 are allegory, as are the words uttered in other chapters by the writer's design. It is all allegory, really. But it IS man's journey.
*Chapter 9, V-30: If I wash myself with snow water,
And make my hands never so clean;
31. Yet wilt Thou plunge me into the ditch,
*And mine own clothes shall abhor me?(*Note. Loss of protective body hair.)
Chapter 10
*V-11: Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh,And knit me together with bones and sinews.
Chapter 12V-2: No doubt that ye are the people,
And wisdom shall die with you.
(Their wisdom. He did not think as they thought anymore.)
3. But I have UNDERSTANDING as well as you;
I am NOT inferior to you.....
20. He removeth the SPEECH of "men" of trust,
(he couldn't understand them anymore, and they could not understand him.)
And taketh away the SENSE of the elders.
22. He uncovereth deep things out of the darkness,
And bringeth out to LIGHT the shadow of death.
23.He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them;
He enlargeth the nations, and leadeth them away.
24. He taketh away the HEART of the CHIEFS of the PEOPLE of the land,
And causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.
25. They grope in the DARK without LIGHT
And he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.
Now THEY were becoming *different* to HIM. He didn't see them as superior anymore.) More progress.
Chapter 13-1: Lo, mine eyes have seen all this,
Mine ear hath heard and UNDERSTOOD it.
2. What ye know, do I know also;
I am NOT inferior to you.
3. NOTWITHSTANDING I would speak to the Almighty,
*The difference is now too profound and a relationship with the old, impossible.
CHAPTER 19, V-13:
He hath put my brethren far from me,
And my aquaintances are wholly estranged from me.
14. My kinsfolk have failed,
And my familiar friends have forgotten me.
15. They that dwell in my house, and my maids, count me for a stranger;
I am become an ALIEN in their sight.
16. I call to my servant, and he giveth me no answer,
though I entreat him WITH MY MOUTH. (speech)
17. My breath is abhorred of my wife,
And I am loathsome to the children of my tribe.
18. Even urchins despise me;
If I arise they speak against me.
19. All my intimate friends abhor me;
And those whom I loved are turned against me.
20. My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh,
And I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
21. Have pity on me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends;
I would retranslate this last altogether. it ought to say:
Chapter 20 is yet another ramble from a writer or teller who has added only his own understanding of what this old Law entails. Primitive and unaware of why the tale of JOB is so desperately important.
*Knows what he was. Knows what he is. Knows it will never be the same.
Chapter 21:
5. Turn unto me and be astonished,
And lay your hand upon your mouth.
6. Even when I REMEMBER I am affrighted, (that I USED to be like YOU.)
And horror taketh hold on my flesh.
*7. Wherefore do the wicked live,
Become old, yea, wax mighty in power?
*Note: The *wicked* are those devoid of understanding and/or wisdom and knowledge. (The *wicked* persecuted him though he loved them. The persecuted him though he begged for their mercy. And yet, though they were powerful, they had no power over him anymore.) Conciousness without conscience.
**14. Yet, they said unto **G-d: 'Depart from us;
For we desire not the KNOWLEDGE of Thy ways.'
**In this, they meant Job, more human than beast, more G-dlike than animals.
They could not understand him, this *new* creature, so they drove him out and shunned him.
The rest is somewhat more of the same, but each section is an upward transition toward becoming human.
By Chapter 38, they made it.
In Chapter 38... There, the First Law of Humanity is handed down, in no uncertain terms. It is by this time that JOB/HUMANITY has realized their positions, know that their former brethren are beyond communication in appearance, in thought, speech, fundamental understanding of mind in any form, consciousness without conscience, (which you can see as real and reality in today's world.) It tells me that all people who walk upright are not human. To be human REQUIRES conscience.
CHAPTER 38 (Not formatted into verses.)
THEN the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: Who is this that darkeneth councel by words without KNOWLEDGE? Gird up thy loins like a man for I will demand of thee, and DECLARE thou unto Me.Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
DECLARE, if thou hast the understanding.
Who determined the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
Or who stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon were the foundations thereof fastened?
Or who laid the cornerstone thereof, when the morning stars sang
together, and all the SONS OF G-D shouted for joy?
Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it broke forth and issued out of the womb; when I made the clouds the garment thereof; and thick darkness a swaddling band for it, and prescribed for it My decree, and set bars and doors, and said: 'Thus far shalt thee come, but no further; and here shall thy proud waves be stayed'?
Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days began, and caused the dayspring to know its place, that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it?
It is changed as clay under the seal; and they stand as a garment. But from the wicked, their light is withholden, and the high arm is broken.
Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? Or hast thou walked in the recesses of the deep? Have the gates of death been revealed unto thee? Or hast thou see the gates of the shadow of death? Hast thou surveyed unto the breadths of the earth?
Where is the way to the dwelling of the light, and as for darkness, where is the place thereof; that thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
(I believe in genetic memory. So that passage hit me like lightning.)
Hast thou entered into the treasuries of the snow, or hast thou seenthe treasuries of the hail; which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
By what way is the light parted,or the east wind scattered upon the earth?
Who hath cleft a channel for the waterflood, or a way for the lightning of the thunder; to cause it to rain on a land where no man is, on the wilderness, wherein there is no man; to satisfy the desolate and waste ground, and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
Hath the rain a father?
Or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
Out of whose womb came the ice?
And the hoar-frost of heaven who hath engendered it?
The waters are congealed like stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
**None of THIS belongs here--->
--->Canst thou bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?**(Bear in mind this was written centuries after the original admonition and contains names that would not have existed in its original form.) Canst thou lead forth the Mazzaroth, (a reference to the Zodiac,) in their season? Or canst thou guide the Bear with her sons?<---
(You must know what surrounds you and do no harm. Do not interfere in the universe. Until you know universal truths, you will try to do damage which won't be permitted.)
(Can you control what I have given you without harming it? CANST THOU LIFT UP THY VOICE TO THE CLOUDS THAT ABUNDANCE OF WATERS MAY COVER THEE?
(Do you know why the rain falls? )
(Can YOU make fire without MY help?)
Skipping over a few verses that have no context....
The wing of the ostrich beateth joyously; but are her pinions and feathers the kindly stork's?
For she leaveth her eggs on the earth, and warmeth them in the dust, and forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may trample them. She is hardened against her young ones as if they were not hers; though her labor be in vain, she is without fear; BECAUSE G-D HATH DEPRIVED HER OF WISDOM, NEITHER HATH HE IMPARTED TO HER UNDERSTANDING. WHEN THE TIME COMETH, SHE RAISES HER WINGS ON HIGH, AND SCORNETH THE HORSE AND RIDER.
(Again, conciousness without conscience or wisdom.) JOB 40
Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said:'Shall he that reproveth contend with the Almighty? He that argueth with G-d, LET HIM ANSWER IT.'
(Today, that would be, "Sorry, Charlie. You ain't that good YET."
Throughout the prose in this book are mention of coals cooling upon the earth. The void and darkness caused by the dense cloud cover over all the earth as the oceans evaporated. There is mention of mountains becoming molten pits in whose channels fire burst forth IN CONJUNCTION WITH mention of leviathan WHICH HAS ITS EXPLANATION AT THE END HERE. There is mention of behemoths.
Random, somewhat enlightening, quotes from JOB:
(Human beginnings:)
"Why died I not from the womb? Why did I not perish at birth? Why did the knees receive me? And wherefor the breasts, that I should suck?For now, should I have lain still and been quiet. (beginnings of speech. it made them different and made their *people* afraid.)I should have slept, then had I been at rest___with kings and counsellors of the earth, who built up waste palaces for themselves....
'In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, fear came upon me, and trembling, and all my bones were made to shake.
Then a spirit passed before my face, that made the hair of my flesh to stand up. It stood still, but I could not discern the appearance thereof; a form was before my eyes; I heard a still voice:
'Shall mortal man be just before G-d?
Shall a man be pure before his maker? Behold, He putteth no trust in his servants, and his angels he chargeth with folly; how much more them that dwell in houses of clay; whose foundation is in the dust, who are crushed before the moth! Betwixt morning and evening they are shattered; they perish forever without regarding it. Is not their tent-cord plucked up within them?
(In otherwards, his FORMER people were mortal *man* and without wisdom. The *angels*=Job=humans, persecuted for becoming more than they. Job's mortality is put in question here. Could Humans learn enough to know they are immortal?)
Do you even know what immortal means?
'They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope at noonday as in the night.'
THEY are animals. I walk upright and control my surroundings.
'Mine inward thoughts are my intercessors...'
I can reason. It's time to go.
VOLCANOES: (via Leviathan which has several meanings depending on which context used.)
Who can uncover the face of his garment?
Who shall come within his double bridle?
Who can open the doors of his face?
Round about his teeth is terror.
His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal. One is so near to another, that no air can come between them. They are joined to one another; they stick together and cannot be sundered. His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like eyelids of morning. Out of his mouth go burning torches, and sparks of fire leap forth. Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot and burning rushes. His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.In his neck abideth strength, and dismay danceth before him. The flakes of his flesh are joined together; they are firm upon him; they cannot be removed. His heart is firm as a stone; yea, firm as nether millstone.
When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid; by reason of dispair they are beside themselves.
If one lay at him with a sword, it will not hold; nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft.
He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee; slingstones are turned with him into stubble. Clubs are accounted as stubble; he laugheth at the rattling of the javelin.
