Leviathan in Job 41:33 has no fear, which is a horror I never want to experience as this fear is a lifeless fear
So today on Bible to wonder about different kind of MILF he never still in Job 41, talking about Leviathan/Satan in verse 33 right prior to the very end of the chapter, God tells Job something quite amazing really. That verse reads upon the earth.
There is none. His like who is made without fear was just an amazing verse because there's two things that are radically different than the way we normally understand these words especially biblically because when you think of the word earth like when God made the heavens and the earth.
That is one kind of word that's not the word that God uses here when he describes the earth when he actually is saying is upon the dust. There is none. His like you might remember the chrome the dust off his belly, and you may also remember that God created man out of dust and not coincidentally, you know, Satan would eat dust all of his life and also when God was explaining to Abraham what his generations working to be so plentiful like the dust you know it can be counted and this seems to be Satan's particular favorite is to eat Abraham's dust, so to speak. So when he's telling Job this upon the dust. There is not his like and then when he says who is made without fear that word fear is not the word that you would see them. A fear of the Lord.
It's a completely different word and essentially to break that down in Hebrew is really a wonderful exercise because the first letter is a hat which means life. I mean it's the first letter in the word life in Hebrew pretty famous word and it's a beautiful letter because it has to do with reflecting the hot and has to do with God's part being reflected in man, but what he saying is in no way shape or form.
Does Satan reflect God, and in him there is no life. In fact, it's the opposite in him is nothing but death and that second letter is the top which on the ancient ancient Hebrew text is across and and this is saying is, it also means the end of the story that for Satan he's not there at the end of the story. He's been thrown into the lake of the lake of fire. So when it says that he doesn't have any fear what it means almost as he's got nothing to lose and so he has no fear because he has nothing to lose. He has lost everything so clearly there's different earth and there is different fear God protect me from the figure I've got nothing else to lose. Especially not my fear of you because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom
