“Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?” (Job 38:22-23).
The phrase “white as snow” is used 3 times in the New Testament—meaning light, bright, brilliant from whiteness, the (dazzling) white of the garments of angels, and of those exalted to the splendor of the heavenly state, shining or white garments worn on festive or state occasions, and of white garments as the sign of innocence and purity. The word “snow” or “white as snow” is used 21 times in the Old Testament. It is interesting to discover that the Old Testament phrase is used as one Hebrew word.
