Ox

These eight references deal with God’s strength in His people and are related to the ox (albeit sometimes obliquely).

Numbers 23:22 (AMP)
“God brought them out of Egypt;
They have the strength of a wild ox.

Numbers 24:8 (AMP)
“God brought Israel out of Egypt;
Israel has strength like the wild ox;
He will devour [Gentile] nations, his adversaries (enemies),
And will crush their bones in pieces,
And shatter them with his arrows.

Deuteronomy 33:16b-17 (AMP)
Let these blessings come upon the head of Joseph,
And upon the crown of the head of him who was distinguished [as a prince] among his brothers.
“His majesty is like a firstborn young bull,
And his horns like the horns of the wild ox;
With them he will gore the peoples,
All of them together, to the ends of the earth.
And those are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
And those are the thousands of Manasseh.”

Judges 3:31 (AMP)
After Ehud came Shamgar the son of Anath, who struck down six hundred Philistine men with an oxgoad. He too saved Israel.

1 Samuel 14:14 (AMP)
That first slaughter which Jonathan and his armor bearer made was about twenty men within about half a [plow] furrow in a plot of land [the area of which a yoke of oxen could plow in a day].

Psalm 22:21b
From the horns of the wild oxen You answer me.

Psalm 29:6 (AMP)
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
And Sirion (Mount Hermon) like a young, wild ox.

Psalm 92:10 (AMP)
But my horn [my emblem of strength and power] You have exalted like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with fresh oil [for Your service].

Great is Your power, Almighty God. Great is Your power in the state of Mississippi. Amen.
