Where does Wisdom Come From?

Job 39 has not title, so sub title, it seemed like it was just a continuation of chapter 38.  But, chapter 38 was about how God had control over the earthly things, like the clouds, rain, sea, lightening and of course more.  Chapter 39 seems to be a description of how does the animals of the earth have their knowledge and understanding.  Look at the verses Jo 39:22-23, these are descriptions of a war horse, how the war hourse stans strong.  I love how God describes th Ostrich – and the lack of good mothering it seems to have, it does not have wisom and understanding – lie we do.

Job 39

Job 39:13–17 (ESV)

13  “The wings of the ostrich wave proudly,

but are they the pinions and plumage of love?

14  For she leaves her eggs to the earth

and lets them be warmed on the ground,

15  forgetting that a foot may crush them

and that the wild beast may trample them.

16  She deals cruelly with her young, as if they were not hers;

though her labor be in vain, yet she has no fear,

17  because God has made her forget wisdom

and given her no share in understanding.

Job 39:22–23 (ESV)

22  He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;

he does not turn back from the sword.

23  Upon him rattle the quiver,

the flashing spear, and the javelin.

Job 39:26 (ESV)

26  “Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars

and spreads his wings toward the south?

Job 39:27 (ESV)

27  Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up

and makes his nest on high?
