let the many coastlands be glad!

"Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits,
since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him."

(2 Timothy 2:3-4, ESV)

"Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that a flood of waters
may cover you? Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go
and say to you, 'Here we are'? Who has put wisdom in the inward
parts or given understanding to the mind? Who can number the
clouds by wisdom? Or who can tilt the waterskins of the heavens,
when the dust runs into a mass and the clods stick fast together?"

(Job 38:34-38, ESV)
