Introduction

As we have seen all through our entire study here in the book of Job, God is showing us what He is doing in us. Everything that has happened to Job typifies what happens in the lives of those with whom God is dealing and who He is judging at this time to bring us to Himself. Job’s experience begins with the assertion that he “was perfect and upright, and [ a man] that feared God, and eschewed evil.”

Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

What this tells us is that Job’s experience in type and shadow, begins in Babylon where we all truly believe we love God and hate evil, but we are completely unaware that we are a self righteous Pharisee.. Job’s story begins as the type of the Pharisee who was convinced that he was “not like other men”:

Luk 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

While Job’s three friends have this same self- righteous spirit, they are not, at this time being judged. Their relationship with God will be given to them at a later date through Job:

Job 42:7 And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
Job 42:8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.

The fact that their acceptance is contingent upon Job’s prayer for them tells us that these men typify those who come to God only through the saviors who come upon the mount Zion, to judge the mount of Esau. In other words Job, typifies the saviors of the first resurrection, while his friends typify those who come to God through the lake of fire.

Oba 1:21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.

Here is Job praying for his friend, and here are the “saviors up on mount Zion, judging the mount of Esau” in the New Testament:

Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

But even though Job typifies God’s elect who are judged first, what we are seeing through the excruciating trials of Job is that we, too, are enduring the very same fiery words of judgment which are the Word of God because “all things come alike to all [ and] there is [ but] one event to the righteous and to the wicked…”

Ecc 9:2 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.

What this tells us is that the fire that torments all men torments God’s elect first and will torment the rest of mankind in “the lake of fire.

1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

So we have several Old Testament types of how God’s judgment begins at the house of God, and in every case it is those who are considered to be God’s house who are used by God to be the first to afflict His elect.
A few examples will make this point:
1) Joseph was betrayed by his own brothers.

Gen 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
Gen 37:18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.

2) King David was betrayed by his closest counselor.

Psa 55:12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
Psa 55:13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
Psa 55:14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.

3) So too, Job is mocked and condemned of his closest friends, the very people who should be comforting Him.

Job 19:19 All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.

And it all foreshadows the rejection of Christ and His Christ “in the house of [ his] friends”.

Zec 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
Mat 26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
Mat 26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
Mat 26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

While Job obviously resents the betrayal he has suffered at the hands of his own friends, he certainly does not yet see himself as the type of anyone who has betrayed his own God, by reproving, contending with and condemning His God. So God continues His judgment of our doomed old man who, at this point, Job still typifies. Since our own words witness against us that we have condemned God as being “wrong” in how he has dealt with us, God asks us:

Job 38:8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
Job 38:9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,

In the physical realm, these verses would apply to the earth during the creation, before the command was given for the dry land to appear, as well as the time of Noah when the waters covered the highest mountains.

Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 7:18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
Gen 7:19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
Gen 7:20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

King David seems to apply this very same description to “the foundations of the earth” at the time of creation, as well as the flood, telling us that “they turn not again to cover the earth”.

Psa 104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
Psa 104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
Psa 104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
Psa 104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
Psa 104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

The “sea” is the Biblical type and figure of all flesh on the earth, and these “waters… [ of] the deep” are the symbol of the death and desolation which are the fruits of the fleshly, carnal mind. It was these fruits of the carnal mind, the fruits of the flesh, which necessitated the destruction of all flesh at the time of the flood.

Gen 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
Gen 6:12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

So we are told:

Psa 104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
Psa 104:25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
Psa 104:26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. Psa 104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
Psa 104:28 That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
Psa 104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath [ Hebrew, ‘ruach’ – spirit], they die, and return to their dust.
Psa 104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit [ Hebrew, ‘ruach’ – spirit], they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

Notice from where Biblical “beast” arises:

Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

“When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddling band for it”, tells us that Christ here is speaking of the first three days of the creation week, before He refers to the fourth and fifth days, when he made the stars and the fowls of the heavens, the types of His angelic “sons of God” who “shouted for joy”, when He finished His “marred” physical creation with His crowning temporal, physical achievement which was, mankind and all the other beasts.

Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
Ecc 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
Ecc 3:20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

It is Christ Himself who tells us the spiritual meaning of the fowls of the heavens in His parable of the sower:

Mat 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; Mat 13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

Mat 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. Mat 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

God continues to point out that we did not even exist when He laid the foundations of His creation.

Job 38:10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
Job 38:11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

King David answers this question for us:

Psa 104:5 Who [ God through Christ] laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever [ Hebrew, olawm – the age].
Psa 104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
Psa 104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
Psa 104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
Psa 104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

We have demonstrated that the sea symbolizes the flesh out of which all of our beasts are brought forth:

Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

So for all those who have been taken in with the false doctrine which teaches that the aions (eons) do not come to an end, and who teach that this physical earth is a permanent fixture, and that God’s decreed place for the seas is a permanent decree for the proud waves of the works of our flesh, they would do well to pay close attention to these words of Job himself:

Job 26:10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
Job 26:11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.
Job 26:12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.
Job 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

Here is how Peter dealt with this false doctrine that there will never be an end to the flesh of mankind:

2Pe 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

The truth is that God did “destroy all flesh wherein was the breath of life” once by water, and He will do so again by fire, whether that “fire” is literal or symbolic, “the heavens and the earth, which are now by the same word kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and [ the literal] perdition of ungodly men”.
Again, the ‘sea’ is the Biblical type of the proud works of the flesh, which bring us all “to our wits’ end” (Psa 107:27). Here is where God first symbolically established the limits of the works of our flesh:

Gen 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
Gen 1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

The flesh is now limited, and even the “crooked serpent” can incite the flesh to go only as far as God has already decreed. Here again is Psa 104:

Psa 104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

Is “the crooked serpent” a permanent fixture who will live forever in eternal flames of physical fire? Absolutely not! The scriptures teach that just as our old man, these “vessels of clay” after serving their predestined purpose will be destroyed and replaced by an “immortal… new man… conformed to the image of [ God’s] Son”, so too, will “the crooked serpent be destroyed and made to be at one with the God of us all:

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

It will be through his destruction that even Satan and His angels will be “chastened of the Lord” (1Co 11:32) and will be “reconciled… unto [ God]”.

Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

The “all things” mentioned here is qualified so we cannot misunderstand it. It is emphasized that “all things” means “all things… whether they be things in earth or things in heaven”. This of necessity includes the devil. So Satan himself will be part of the “the reconcil[ iation] of all things unto Himself… by Him”, by Christ.

Job 38:12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;

“Have you commanded the morning since your days…” Here are Job’s days, as Christ demonstrates in this same chapter:

Job 38:21 Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?

God is using sarcasm to get us to acknowledge that we are His inferiors, and have been here only as a passing vapor.

Jas 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.

Bildad has already truthfully informed Job that his days on this earth are “but of yesterday, and we know nothing, because our days upon the earth are a shadow”.

Job 8:8 For enquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
Job 8:9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)

It is revealed to us that Christ is “the dayspring”. It was He who furnished the light of the first day:

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God [ Christ] said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Christ tells us that it was He who created the light and the darkness, as types of the good and the evil:

Isa 45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

Christ Himself is called “the Sun”:

Mal 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

Christ Himself is the Sun of those first three days. An evening and a morning do not require that the physical sun and the stars come first, any more than a grown man requires being a baby first, or a hen requires an egg first. God is not limited to the physical realm, and can create an evening and a morning by simply causing the earth to rotate, just as He can create a mature man, a mature hen and mature trees with growth rings, leaves, blossoms and fruit already in place. Now let’s look at what the holy spirit has revealed to us concerning the prophet known as John the baptist, and John’s relationship to the Christ, who is called “the dayspring from on high”:

Luk 1:76 And thou, child [ John], shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
Luk 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
Luk 1:78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
Luk 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

“The dayspring” is also called “the day star”:

2Pe 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

Christ also refers to Himself as “the morning star”, and all these titles refer to the one Lord through whom the Father has created all things:

Rev 2:26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
Rev 2:27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
Rev 2:28 And I will give him the morning star.

Just what is this “morning star” Christ is offering us if He sees fit to make us to be “overcomers”? Here is the gift we are being given:

Rev 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Christ is giving us Himself if we are granted to be the overcomers of Rev 2-3. He is “the bright and morning star”.

Job 38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

“That it… the dayspring… might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it”, just another way of saying that Christ might come into us and burn out of us all that will burn. Paul put this verse of Job in these words:

1Co 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1Co 3:12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
1Co 3:13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day [ spring] shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
1Co 3:14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
1Co 3:15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

But the fact that the first and primary application of scripture is now and is inward, in no way denies that the day is coming when God’s elect will outwardly “take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it”.
Now let’s look at a very interesting fact concerning this verse of Job. The word “ends” as in “ends of the earth” is translated from the Hebrew word for “wings”. It is the Hebrew word “kanaph”. The dayspring takes hold of the wings of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it.

Let’s notice how King David uses this very same word:

Psa 61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings [ kanaph]. Selah.

King David equates God’s tabernacle, which Paul just informed us we are, with “the covert of thy wings”. This all makes Christ’s burden for Jerusalem even more meaningful:

Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

What Christ is lamenting is that He would have made Jerusalem his temple, His house, in which He would dwell, but they would not have Him. Therefore “[ their] house is left unto [ them] desolate”. Their house will not at this time be His house, His temple where He dwells.

Job 38:14 It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.

The dayspring takes hold of the wings of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it. Let’s look at verse 13 again, so we can understand the meaning of verse 14:

Job 38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

“It is turned as clay to the seal” is still referring to “the dayspring” which “takes hold of the ends of the earth.” “The earth” out of which the wicked are shaken speaks of the earth as the clay in the Potter’s hand, being made “another vessel, as it seemed good to the Potter to make it”. A seal leaves an imprint in the clay, and “they stand as a garment” refers to those who are “turned as clay to the seal”. So in this case “the clay” refers to those who are molded into the vessel the Lord wants them to be.

2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure [“Jesus Christ”, verse 6] in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Here is how Jeremiah makes this same statement:

Jer 18:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
Jer 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
Jer 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
Jer 18:5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Jer 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

In other words, in the end “the Israel of God… [Gal 6:16] is turned as clay to the seal, and they stand as a garment” The “garment” is interpreted as that which covers our nakedness, our sins. And “white raiment” is interpreted as the garment which symbolizes “the righteousness of the saints”.

Rev 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

So it is “the dayspring” and those in whom He dwells who are “turned as clay to the seal”, which ‘seal’ is Christ and whose image we become. It is those who are conformed to the image of Christ who are used by Christ to bring His light to this world. But very few at this time are given to receive His light which they bring.

So we are told:

Job 38:15 And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.

“Their light” is the light of those who are “the dayspring” who bring the Truth of God to those who are given to accept the light of “the dayspring”. But this light is withheld from us also, until our appointed time.
Here is this same statement as it is interpreted by the New Testament:

Rom 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Light is withheld from the wicked. Like the church of Laodicea, they do not see themselves as being wicked. To us at this time in our walk, we are those who, as Job said earlier, consider darkness to be light, and we hate the light.

Job 24:16 In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.
Job 24:17 For the morning [“the dayspring”] is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.

We are all blinded until the day we are granted eyes that see and ears that hear:

Mat 13:14 And in them [ the wicked from whom “their light is withholden”] is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
Mat 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Mat 13:16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
Mat 13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

Next week, Lord willing, we will continue to hear the Lord’s words to our, self- righteous old man who cannot see that he is wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”.

Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Lord willing, these will be our verses for next week’s study:

Job 38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
Job 38:17 Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
Job 38:18 Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
Job 38:19 Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
Job 38:20 That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
Job 38:21 Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?
Job 38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
Job 38:23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
