The Spider in the Bible:
24 "Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise:
25 Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer;
26 Coneys are creatures of little power, yet they make their home in the crags;
27 locusts have no king, yet they advance together in ranks;
28 a spider can be caught with the hand, yet it is found in kings' palaces.
In my "Arabic" Bible, the verse 24 says:" the smallest"; this adjective is modified in the modern English version to "small".
However, there are thousands of creatures that are smaller than the Ants, Coneys, locusts and a spider and are wise also as for examples the microbes, protozoa and fungi.
Also, why the spider is found in the kings' places specifically?
Again, why the locusts have no king although they have?
13 Such is the destiny of all who forget God; so perishes the hope of the godless.
14 What he trusts in is fragile; what he relies on is a spider's web.
In this verse, the trust of the hypocrite is compared to the spider's web or house. This meaning is a beautiful one.
Talking about those who are unjust and lie etc.
5 They hatch the eggs of vipers and spin a spider's web. Whoever eats their eggs will die, and when one is broken, an adder is hatched.
6 Their cobwebs are useless for clothing; they cannot cover themselves with what they make. Their deeds are evil deeds, and acts of violence are in their hands.
Isaiah describes the wicked as those which "weave the spider's web" their works and designs are, like the spider's web, vain and useless.
Hope this helps angel!
