Discussion for Job 41

  • Irene123
    Ps.30:11- mourning into dancing; Job 41:22- Sorrow into joy; Jn.16:20 - but your sorrow shall be turned into joy, this verse is prophecy of salvation - Acts2:37-38; Jer.31:13. May these scriptures be a blessing to all of us this day.
  • The word battell used in the original 1611 edition actually means a list of debts owed. Check the Oxford English Dictionary. Also where the word that is used to mean battle in the 1611 edition of the book of Job it is spelled battaile. It is little wonder why the book of Job is so misunderstood. Also, the word battell had a dual meaning at one time and it does mean a fight of some kind in other books of the 1611 bible but not in the book of Job!

    Scripture with scripture. Compare Job 41 with Rev.12 12. Satan is cast out through the great frozen sea, that looks like glass, that God 's throne sits upon.

    Leviathan was the name of the devil when he was an Angel with God in heaven. This Creature is also described in Isaiah 27:1-4,5. He is a Huge Dragon or snake for clarity. He resides in the Sea but I doubt it can be seen with the naked eyes as his form is also spiritual. He is dreadful to look at and is by far the biggest anaconda-like image you could ever imagine. You may ask how I know, itís all spiritual and I was given the privilege to see it. Trust me, all the description above in this chapter is real. you donít want to spend your eternity with him. So Please, Please, Please, strive to serve your creator (the Almighty God).
  • I think that only God truly knows what the Leviathan is so we should ask Him when we all get to Heaven. Amen
