Bible Knows Best: What Scientific Principle Are These Verses Referring To?

I’m just going to throw out a few verses here, and I want you to pay close attention to the phrasing and pattern. You tell me what this is referring to.

Job 36:26-28 “Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out. For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.”

Amos 9:6 “He that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.”

Ecclesiastes 1:7 “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.”

Job 37:16 “Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?”

Do you see the pattern emerging? What is the Bible referring to here?

If you guessed “hydrologic cycle”, you are not alone. In fact, there are actually multiple references to the natural water cycle spread out through at least 3 different books of the Bible. Accident? Or maybe God was pointing to something important, thousands of years before it would be documented by science.
