Frozen water. Job's poetry has several references to ice. Ice is described as hard as stone (Job 38:30 ). In picturesque language, ice is frozen by the “breath of God” (Job 37:10 ). In an even bolder image, the Lord demanded to know “Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?” (Job 38:29 ). Though lacking the knowledge of a meteorologist, the biblical writer saw clearly with wondering eyes that God was the ultimate source of weather phenomena. The Hebrew term translated ice is sometimes rendered cold or frost (Genesis 31:40 ; Jeremiah 36:30 ).
