Job 38:22, Where Does Snow Come From?

“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail?”

//It’s hard in today’s enlightened world to appreciate the wonderment of the ancients. Imagine them looking up to the sky in bafflement. What makes the sun and moon trek across the sky? What holds the earth up? Or perhaps my favorite question of all: where is all of the snow and hail kept up in the sky, for when it is time to fall? In today’s verse, God asks Job if he’s ever visited the storehouses.

Small wonder that the “sky gods” of various cultures reigned supreme. One cannot truly appreciate the Bible without transporting yourself back into the age of wonderment.
