We are fallen
The LORD furthermore said to him, “Now put your hand into your bosom.” So he put his hand into his bosom, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous like snow.
“I am accounted wicked, Why then should I toil in vain ? “If I should wash myself with snow And cleanse my hands with lye, Yet You would plunge me into the pit, And my own clothes would abhor me. “For He is not a man as I am that I may answer Him, That we may go to court together. “There is no umpire between us, Who may lay his hand upon us both. “Let Him remove His rod from me, And let not dread of Him terrify me. “Then I would speak and not fear Him; But I am not like that in myself.
“For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth,’ And to the downpour and the rain , ‘Be strong.’
“Drought and heat consume the snow waters, So does Sheol those who have sinned.
Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean ; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
He gives snow like wool ; He scatters the frost like ashes.
Fire and hail, snow and clouds ; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word
We need to respond
Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest Is a faithful messenger to those who send him, For he refreshes the soul of his masters.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household, For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
[“Let Us Reason”] “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow ; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool.
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater ;So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth ; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
Snow is the look of the Savior
[The Ancient of Days Reigns] “I kept looking Until thrones were set up, And the Ancient of Days took His seat ; His vesture was like white snow And the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was ablaze with flames, Its wheels were a burning fire.
And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow ; and His eyes were like a flame of fire.
