The trees of the Lord are full of growth, the cedars of Lebanon of his planting; Where the birds have their resting-places; as for the stork, the tall trees are her house.

The waters are joined together, hard as a stone, and the face of the deep is covered.

Job 38:31-33

Are the bands of the Pleiades fixed by you, or are the cords of Orion made loose? Do you make Mazzaroth come out in its right time, or are the Bear and its children guided by you? Have you knowledge of the laws of the heavens? did you give them rule over the earth?

Have you knowledge of the rock-goats? or do you see the roes giving birth to their young? Is the number of their months fixed by you? or is the time when they give birth ordered by you? They are bent down, they give birth to their young, they let loose the fruit of their body.read more.
Their young ones are strong, living in the open country; they go out and do not come back again. Who has let the ass of the fields go free? or made loose the bands of the loud-voiced beast? To whom I have given the waste land for a heritage, and the salt land as a living-place. He makes sport of the noise of the town; the voice of the driver does not come to his ears; He goes looking for his grass-lands in the mountains, searching out every green thing. Will the ox of the mountains be your servant? or is his night's resting-place by your food-store? Will he be pulling your plough with cords, turning up the valleys after you? Will you put your faith in him, because his strength is great? will you give the fruit of your work into his care? Will you be looking for him to come back, and get in your seed to the crushing-floor? Is the wing of the ostrich feeble, or is it because she has no feathers, That she puts her eggs on the earth, warming them in the dust, Without a thought that they may be crushed by the foot, and broken by the beasts of the field? She is cruel to her young ones, as if they were not hers; her work is to no purpose; she has no fear. For God has taken wisdom from her mind, and given her no measure of knowledge. When she is shaking her wings on high, she makes sport of the horse and of him who is seated on him. Do you give strength to the horse? is it by your hand that his neck is clothed with power? Is it through you that he is shaking like a locust, in the pride of his loud-sounding breath? He is stamping with joy in the valley; he makes sport of fear. In his strength he goes out against the arms of war, turning not away from the sword. The bow is sounding against him; he sees the shining point of spear and arrow. Shaking with passion, he is biting the earth; he is not able to keep quiet at the sound of the horn; When it comes to his ears he says, Aha! He is smelling the fight from far off, and hearing the thunder of the captains, and the war-cries. Is it through your knowledge that the hawk takes his flight, stretching out his wings to the south? Or is it by your orders that the eagle goes up, and makes his resting-place on high? On the rock is his house, and on the mountain-top his strong place. From there he is watching for food; his eye sees it far off. His young have blood for their drink, and where the dead bodies are, there is he to be seen.

Job 40:15-24

See now the Great Beast, whom I made, even as I made you; he takes grass for food, like the ox. His strength is in his body, and his force in the muscles of his stomach. His tail is curving like a cedar; the muscles of his legs are joined together.read more.
His bones are pipes of brass, his legs are like rods of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God, made by him for his pleasure. He takes the produce of the mountains, where all the beasts of the field are at play. He takes his rest under the trees of the river, and in the pool, under the shade of the water-plants. He is covered by the branches of the trees; the grasses of the stream are round him. Truly, if the river is overflowing, it gives him no cause for fear; he has no sense of danger, even if Jordan is rushing against his mouth. Will anyone take him when he is on the watch, or put metal teeth through his nose?

Job 41:1-11

Is it possible for Leviathan to be pulled out with a fish-hook, or for a hook to be put through the bone of his mouth? Will you put a cord into his nose, or take him away with a cord round his tongue? Will he make prayers to you, or say soft words to you?read more.
Will he make an agreement with you, so that you may take him as a servant for ever? Will you make sport with him, as with a bird? or put him in chains for your young women? Will the fishermen make profit out of him? will they have him cut up for the traders? Will you put sharp-pointed irons into his skin, or fish-spears into his head? Only put your hand on him, and see what a fight you will have; you will not do it again! Truly, the hope of his attacker is false; he is overcome even on seeing him! He is so cruel that no one is ready to go against him. Who then is able to keep his place before me? Who ever went against me, and got the better of me? There is no one under heaven!

Psalm 104:20-27

When you make it dark, it is night, when all the beasts of the woods come quietly out of their secret places. The young lions go thundering after their food; searching for their meat from God. The sun comes up, and they come together, and go back to their secret places to take their rest.read more.
Man goes out to his work, and to his business, till the evening. O Lord, how great is the number of your works! in wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of the things you have made. There is the great, wide sea, where there are living things, great and small, more than may be numbered. There go the ships; there is that great beast, which you have made as a plaything. All of them are waiting for you, to give them their food in its time.

Exodus 19:3-6

And Moses went up to God, and the voice of the Lord came to him from the mountain, saying, Say to the family of Jacob, and give word to the children of Israel: You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I took you, as on eagles' wings, guiding you to myself. If now you will truly give ear to my voice and keep my agreement, you will be my special property out of all the peoples: for all the earth is mine:read more.
And you will be a kingdom of priests to me, and a holy nation. These are the words which you are to say to the children of Israel.

Deuteronomy 4:32-34

Give thought now to the days which are past, before your time, from the day when God first gave life to man on the earth, and searching from one end of heaven to the other, see if such a great thing as this has ever been, or if anything like it has been talked of in story. Has any people ever gone on living after hearing the voice of God out of the heart of the fire as you did? Has God ever before taken a nation for himself from out of another nation, by punishments and signs and wonders, by war and by a strong hand and a stretched-out arm and great acts of wonder and fear, as the Lord your God did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes?

Hosea 11:1-4

When Israel was a child he was dear to me; and I took my son out of Egypt. When I sent for them, then they went away from me; they made offerings to the Baals, burning perfumes to images. But I was guiding Ephraim's footsteps; I took them up in my arms, but they were not conscious that I was ready to make them well.read more.
I made them come after me with the cords of a man, with the bands of love; I was to them as one who took the yoke from off their mouths, putting meat before them.

In all the places where I went with all the children of Israel, did I ever say to any of the judges of Israel, to whom I gave the care of my people Israel, Why have you not made me a house of cedar?
