  1. "God has made him a horse, a steed of war. He delights in being a horse; he is glad to work like a horse and to fight like a steed of war.

He snuffs the air, and stamps the ground, and 'saith among the trumpets, "Ha! Ha!"'"

    From a seminary graduation sermon by Martin Franzmann, referring to Job 39:19-25, ("Ha! Ha! Among the Trumpets" CPH 1994, pp. 3-4)
