Yahweh controls time (Ps 104:19-104:23)

“You have made the moon to mark the seasons.

The sun knows it’s time for setting.

You make darkness.

It is night.

Then all the animals of the forest come creeping out.

The young lions roar for their prey.

They seek their food from God.

When the sun rises,

They withdraw.

They lie down in their dens.

People go out to their work.

They labor until the evening.”

Everything has a purpose. God made the moon to mark the seasons and the sun to mark the days. Thus there is night and darkness. The sun rises and sets which is perfectly correct with a flat earth concept of the world. The earth does not move around the sun. God makes the darkness. During this darkness, the animals of the forest can creep around, while the young lions can seek their prey that is food that comes from God. It almost sounds like the lions recognize God. When the sun rises on the next day, the lions return to their dens. Then the people go out to work until the evening time.

Yahweh questions Job about the animals (Job 38:39-38:41)

“Can you hunt the prey for the lion?

Can you satisfy the appetite of the young lions?

When they crouch in their dens?

When they lie in wait in their covert?

Who provides for the raven its prey?

Its young ones cry to God.

They wander about for lack of food.”

Yahweh picked on the lions and the ravens. Who would provide food for the young lions when they are in the dens? Who would provide for the ravens as the young ones wander about for food? There was a sense of caring for the young lions and ravens.
