Archaeology of Biblical Astronomy
"Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?" Knowest thou the ordinances (statutes) of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? Job 38:31-33
Here in the oldest book in the Bible, written centuries before the Greek and Roman pagan cultures, we find that the constellations of the zodiac were already clearly known and understood.
Pleiades means the congregation of the judge or ruler and is cluster of seven stars in the constellation of Taurus. The Syriac name for the Pleiades is Succoth, which means booths.
Orion is also in the constellation of Taurus and means The coming Prince.
Mazzaroth is the twelve signs of the Zodiac marking the path of the sun in the heavens.
Arcturus is in the Decan of Ursa Major, The Great Bear of the constellation of Cancer. The word
denotes a flock or congregation.
Which maketh Arcthurus, Orion, and
Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.
