Yahweh questions Job about light and darkness (Job 38:19-38:21)

“Where is the way to the dwelling of light?

Where is the place of darkness?

Where is its territory?

How can you discern the paths to its home?

Surely you know.

You were born then.

The number of your days is great!”

Yahweh wanted to know if Job knew where light and darkness could be found. He wondered if Job knew the path to each one. Surely, he should know this since he was born a human with a great number of days to his life. There is a little sarcasm in these questions since Job does have limited knowledge.
