Horses R Awesome! :D



This is a really awesome passage, one of my favorites, and you wouldn’t guess that it came from one of the longest, most boring books in the Bible, Job. Ya’ll know I love horses, right? Right. So when I was looking up how many times the word horse and horses came up in the Bible, (horse, [41] and horses, [105]) I found this cool passage in which God basically tells Job how breathtaking horses are:

Job 39:19-25

19 “Have you given the horse strength? Have you clothed his neck with thunder?

20 Can you frighten him like a locust? His majestic snorting strikes terror.

21 He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He gallops into the clash of arms.

22 He mocks at fear, and is not frightened; Nor does he turn back from the sword.

23 The quiver rattles against him, the glittering spear and javelin.

24 He devours the distance with fierceness and rage; Nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded.

25 At the blast of the trumpet, he says, ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle from afar, The thunder of captains and shouting.”
