Let the Earth Rejoice

01 July 2008

Fox News reports that satellite data has confirmed a theory that solar radiation colliding with the Earth's magnetic field generates a series of "chirps and whistles".  The story briefly explains the science behind the discovery and closes with the observation

Our planet is also known to hum, a mysterious low-frequency sound thought to be caused by the churning ocean or the roiling atmosphere.

This brought to mind a few verses from Scripture:

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. (Isaiah 49:13 KJV)

and

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; And let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns." Let the sea roar, and all it contains; Let the field exult, and all that is in it. Then the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the LORD; For He is coming to judge the earth. O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting. (1 Chronicles 16:31-34 NASB)

It seems that, once again, Scripture contains knowledge that science is just now confirming.  Isn't God's Word good? :)
