Job, Chapter 39, Verse 22
He laughs at fear and cannot be terrified; he does not retreat from the sword.
God has turned Jobs attention to the animal world. In fact five pairs of wild animals are mentioned: the lion and the raven; the mountain goat and the hind (red deer); the wild ass and the wild ox; the ostrich and the warhorse; the hawk and the eagle. Near Eastern art and iconography have shown that almost all these animals are associated with destruction (demons, wilderness, chaos). They represent a world in opposition to humanity. God is saying not only that these mysterious beasts and their ways are understood but that they are controlled and that this is a command given to humankind. We cannot bring order out of the wild and chaoitic world without God’s help. Like Job we are at times in the throes of chaos and the way we react matters not only to ourselves and others but also to the world. Each life matters, we are integral to creatition; we have a purpose. May God take pride and delight in you as His servant as He did in Job. (Remember it was the devil who stated I will not serve) The Collegeville Bible Commentary, 1986.
World Humanitarian Day
World Humanitarian Day seeks to recognize the compassion and bravery of humanitarian workers. The day also serves to gain international cooperation to meet the needs of humanitarian work around the world. Humanitarian workers provide life-saving assistance consisting of first aid, nutrition, shelter and help rebuilding after disaster has struck. These workers often battle violence, local diseases and hunger while attempting to save lives and provide relief to those most in need. World Humanitarian Day was designated by the United Nations in December of 2008 in an effort to honor the sacrifices of humanitarian workers. It is celebrated annually on August 19, a day that commemorates the 2003 bombing of the UN Headquarters in Iraq.
