7 What misery is mine!
I am like one who gathers summer fruit
at the gleaning of the vineyard;
there is no cluster of grapes to eat,
none of the early figs that I crave.
2 The faithful have been swept from the land;
not one upright person remains.
Everyone lies in wait to shed blood;
they hunt each other with nets.
3 Both hands are skilled in doing evil;
the ruler demands gifts,
the judge accepts bribes,
the powerful dictate what they desire—
they all conspire together.
4 The best of them is like a brier,
the most upright worse than a thorn hedge.
The day God visits you has come,
the day your watchmen sound the alarm.
Now is the time of your confusion.
5 Do not trust a neighbor;
put no confidence in a friend.
Even with the woman who lies in your embrace
guard the words of your lips.
6 For a son dishonors his father,
a daughter rises up against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
a man’s enemies are the members of his own household.
7 But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord,
I wait for God my Savior;
my God will hear me.
8 Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
Though I have fallen, I will rise.
Though I sit in darkness,
the Lord will be my light.
9 Because I have sinned against him,
I will bear the Lord’s wrath,
until he pleads my case
and upholds my cause.
He will bring me out into the light;
I will see his righteousness.
10 Then my enemy will see it
and will be covered with shame,
she who said to me,
“Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will see her downfall;
even now she will be trampled underfoot
like mire in the streets.
11 The day for building your walls will come,
the day for extending your boundaries.
12 In that day people will come to you
from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
even from Egypt to the Euphrates
and from sea to sea
and from mountain to mountain.
13 The earth will become desolate because of its inhabitants,
as the result of their deeds.
14 Shepherd your people with your staff,
the flock of your inheritance,
which lives by itself in a forest,
in fertile pasturelands.[a]
Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
as in days long ago.
15 “As in the days when you came out of Egypt,
I will show them my wonders.”
16 Nations will see and be ashamed,
deprived of all their power.
They will put their hands over their mouths
and their ears will become deaf.
17 They will lick dust like a snake,
like creatures that crawl on the ground.
They will come trembling out of their dens;
they will turn in fear to the Lord our God
and will be afraid of you.
18 Who is a God like you,
who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
but delight to show mercy.
19 You will again have compassion on us;
you will tread our sins underfoot
and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
20 You will be faithful to Jacob,
and show love to Abraham,
as you pledged on oath to our ancestors
in days long ago.
Leviathan has been a mystery for many: once thought to be a sea creatoure(sea serpent or whale) that some call a Crock(dinosaure during the pangea period). The ancient Hebrew letter for the symbol that looks like a twisted rope could perhaps be the meaning for this leviathan. Definitions of leviathan are: Large sea serpent, Whale, Large Crocodile (Perhaps a dinosaur due to the size.). It was also sugested that the ships of egypt resembled the leviathian. As one veiws all scripture concerning Leviathan; 3 Main descriptions appear:
1st; The leviathain has to do with a rouge wave like a geyser or mud volcano From the ocean floor.
2nd: The leviathan has to do with rebellious nations,
3rdly; The leviathan has to do with great power that only God can control.
This leviathan could very well be what people refer to as "mother nature" or "the beast".
Jonah was tossed overboard and a Giant fish swalled him. Posible a Rugue wave caused by the shifting plates of the ocean floor. Euruptions causing Large waves that tossed the ship to anf fro. Jonah was tossed into the ocean and a giant whale swalled him for 3 days. Jesus Christ rose from the grave on the 3rd day after his death. The crossing of the red sea during the time of moses was a type of geyser or underwater eruption that caused fish, egyptian armor, and weapons to appear upon the land for the Israelites. The leviathan can not be mastered by humans in those days;one can kill a crocodile with weapons of that time. thus, Illistrating it's massive strenght or power. The book of James compares the out of control tongue with a ship that is out of control because of a tongue that glorifies self rather than God(Such as a lying tonge or false prophet). Surrounding nations of Israel that worshipped foriegn gods would promote a self centerned nature within themselves, even to the point of being titled as a god themselves. Leviathan could also mean a rebellious self centered spirit of Antichrist that causes havok like a rouge wave, volcano, or shifting of the tectonic plates. To have a tongue like leviathian one would have to be like the Devil's own son!
