The Bible is clearly telling us about monitoring the the constellation Orion with importance? But why.
I didn't realise the Bible mentioned Orion. The first part of your post is interesting, but the second part I feel is somewhat irrelevant. Orion is
significant to us for some largely unknown reason. Personally I believe that we have ancestors among that constellation and we're either going to be
visited by them at some point, taken back there somehow, or are destined to go there when we die and our spirit forsakes our body.
Yeah, it actually does...
Here's a cut and paste from another thread I started a few weeks ago...that may contribute to the discussion...atleast some of the scientists
quotes...please excuse the persuasion aspects, it really applies to the other thread....

Specifically… Orion , Pleiades, and Arcturus
Remember the old story of Job…He’s the guy who had it all, was tested, endured…and ultimately came out smelling like a rose!
When he was going through the testing he asked the LORD some pointed questions, in his book, primarily chapter 28…if you have time please go and
Here’s the questions…remember the Book of Job is very very old…maybe the oldest in the OT…it goes like this…”Canst thou bind the sweet
influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?”
ORION? Huh? A fellow named Garrett P. Serviss, the noted astronomer, wrote about the bands of Orion in a book titled CURIOSITIES OF THE SKY.
Orion has an almost perfect straight line, a row of second-magnitude stars about equally spaced. Thru time, however, the two right-hand stars, Mintaka
and Alnilam, will approach each other and form a naked-eye double; but the third, Alnitak, will drift away eastward so that the band will no longer
One star is traveling in a certain direction at a certain speed, a second one is traveling in a different direction at a second speed, and the third
one is going in a third direction and at a still different speed.
In reality, every star in Orion is traveling its ‘own’ course, independent of all the others. Thus, these stars that we see forming one of the
bands of Orion are as an example like 3 boats out on the high seas that happen to be in line at the present moment, but will ultimately in the future
be separated by thousands of miles of ocean. In fact, all these stars that at the present time constitute the constellation of Orion are bound for
different countries, and all are journeying to different corners of the universe, so that the bands are being diminished and evident gone.
THE PLEIADES, huh? See how they are different! The seven stars of the Pleiades are in reality a grouping of 250 suns. Photographs now reveal that 250
blazing suns in this group are all traveling together in one common direction. Concerning this cluster, Isabel Lewis of the United States Naval
Observatory tells us: “Astronomers have identified 250 stars as actual members of this group, all sharing in a common motion and drifting through
space in the same direction.” Lewis also speaks of them as "journeying onward together through the immensity of space."
The Lick Observatory said of Dr. Robert J. Trumpler… “Over 25,000 individual measures of the Pleiades stars are now available, and their study led
to the important discovery that the whole cluster is moving in a southeasterly direction. The Pleiades stars may thus be compared to a swarm of birds,
flying together to a distant goal. This leaves no doubt that the Pleiades are not a temporary or accidental agglomeration of stars, but a system in
which the stars are bound together by a close kinship.”
Without any reference whatsoever to the Book of Job, he announced to the world that these discoveries prove that the stars in the Pleiades are all
bound together and are flying together like a flock of birds as they journey to their distant goal. Isn’t that exactly what God said to Job, way
back in the day????
"Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades?" In other words, Canst thou keep them bound together so that they remain as a family of suns? You
gotta admit, that’s pretty neat, at least, right?
