“..Same with this. They knew that a hippo or elephant’s tail is nothing like a “great cedar”. And it is pretty easy to kill either with the most basic of weapons. especially when a few guys get together.

The creatures described in Job are significantly more formidable.
..”

Agreed!!!

I imagine Africans hunted Hippo, and crocs.....

These were most likely animal that are extinct.
my apologies

Many things in scripture are given from a point of perspective. See what already has been discussed above before jumping in.

Perhaps larger varieties of the animals we know now... at any rate, this has to be understood from Job’s point of view. God wouldn’t bother trying to wow Job with a spider or a grasshopper, but He might wow a housefly with that.

Agreed...but

"The spider skillfully grasps with its hands, and it is in kings’ palaces" (prov30:28). The prophet Isaiah also used spiders to teach an important lesson. He spoke of people who were so evil that they "hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web" (Isa59:5)

"..their webs will not become garments, nor will they cover themselves with their works." .."

Thanks!
