How Little Man Knows
The nose is an organ centered on the human face, which has the ability to breathe and to smell. And it is through the nostrils that God gave us breath. For it was through the nostrils that the first man received breath.
The nose is an organ centered on the human face, which gives us the ability to breathe and smell. And it is through man’s nostrils that God first gave us breath. For it was through his nostrils, that the first man received the breath of life. "Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (Genesis 2:7) For it is through the nostrils that God can give life. But it is also through the nostrils that God removes life. For it was through the nostrils, that God destroyed all flesh in the flood. "All flesh that moved on the earth perished,birds and cattle and beasts and every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth, and all mankind; of all that was on the dry land, all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died." (Genesis7:21-22) And the forefathers would speak of its life giving breath."For as long as life is in me, and the breath of God is in my nostrils But the breath of destruction comes from God’s nostrils. For it was through His nostrils that Egypt would perish. "At the blast of Your, My lips certainly will not speak unjustly, nor will my tongue mutter deceit." (Job 27:3-4)
