Has anyone ever read the cow prophecy of Enoch?

Cattle were a sacrificial animal, very important for working and eating
Covenants were cut in cattle, it's pretty obvious the significance of cattle
God made a covenant with Abraham walking through the pieces of cattle that was sacrificed
God used a human ritual to make Abraham understand the covenant He made
Genesis 15, pretty clear the value of cattle, God met Abraham at his own human level
Can you please explain your personal views as to why God wanted 12 cows to hold up the Molt Sea.
Text Numbers 23:33 ”From Egypt God (EL) brought them— his strength was like a wild ox!” (International Standard Version) ”God (EL) brings them out of Egypt and is for them like the horns of the wild ox.” (English Standard Version)

This makes sense. As many others have pointed out the Oxen represents power, authority and strength.
If that's the stuff worthy of being worshipped then why didnt everyone worship lions, tigers, rhinos, hippos or even elephants, instead?
Note this cow worship thing is as universal a constant as the pyramid,
Everything to do with the number 12 is rooted in astrology, making it pretty inherent that unless assessing that kind of stuff out through that lens you'll get far far off the path they were such a trip on. If "God" was involved, this covenant having anything to do with communicating knowledge or edicts or whatever to them, no way the creator of the solar system or universe or whatever would have them worshiping these big lumbering grass eating halfwit herd mind critters.
I don't think God hate billions of Chinese souls for practising the material way of life in Buddism. They are still God's children, nevertheless. After all, Gautama Buddha doesnt think the state of nothingness ( nirvana ) is a bad thing. I think it more likely, what you sow is what you reap. If Buddhist wish for Nirvana ( permenant second death ), then why should God object their free will?
