Proverbs 30:18-19 “There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: (19) the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a young woman.
The proverbs in these closing chapters adopt a rhythmic way of bringing wisdom.
Here, the writer humbly confesses that some things are beyond wisdom to explain or understand. He is amazed! It is no big thing for a wise person to admit amazement at the things of God’s Creation. Who isn’t amazed at the way an eagle soars or a snake moves so quickly over smooth rock? When this proverb was written, people did not understand about the earth being a sphere. So the wise man admits he does not understand how a ship disappears from sight. And, like us all, he does not understand the way a girl and boy become “in love” and the way they behave!
Jesus was amazed:
Matthew 8:8-10 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. (9) For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” (10) When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.
More so, He was and is amazing:
Matthew 13:54 Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked.
