God had two more animals that He wanted Job to observe and understand that if he could not harness or contend with these two animals, then he certainly could not harness or contend with their Maker. Perhaps with one of these animals nearby, God told Job,
“Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you; he eats grass like an ox” (Job 40:15).
God asked Job to look at the largest land-dwelling animal that God had made, which we now know to be one of the sauropod dinosaurs. God made the largest animals right along with man, truly on the same day as man. This huge creature ate grass like an ox, yet, his size clearly outdid man’s size.
Whom does man think he is contending against God, when man is so puny compared to behemoth, a mere creature of God’s along with man?
