Bible Commentary for Job 9:9

Wesley's Notes for Job 9:9


9:9 Ordereth - Disposeth them, governeth their rising and setting, and all their influences. These he names as constellations of greatest eminency; but under them he seems to comprehend all the stars, which as they were created by God, so are under his government. Arcturus is a northern constellation, near that called the Bear. Orion is a more southerly constellation, that rises to us in December. The Pleiades is a constellation not far from Orion, which we call the seven stars: by the chambers, (or inmost chambers, as the word signifies) of the south, he seems to understand those stars and constellations which are toward the southern pole, which are called inward chambers, because they are for the most part hid and shut up from these parts of the world.

    Those mentioned in Job were stars. Orion is a constellation, often called the hunter.

    "Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south."

    Arcturus is a red giant star in the Northern Hemisphere of Earth's sky and the brightest star in the constellation Botes (the herdsman). Arcturus is among the brightest stars that can be seen from Earth.

    The Pleiades star cluster, also known as the Seven Sisters, is a bright object in the night sky with many a story in ancient mythology.

    I was actually a member of the Southern Cross Astronomical society with the Miami Museum of science and space Planetarium when I was younger. I enjoyed looked at the creation and then discovered the creator.
