The context of this post is brought to you by Job 28:20-27.
"Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;
To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder;
Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.”
Why, if I didn’t know better, I’d think the author of Job was trying to say something about the nature of God, rather than give us a lesson about air pressure.
