Arcturus

Greek, answering to the Latin-named constellation Ura Major; Hebrew 'ash, or 'aish (Job 9:9; Job 38:32-33). The Great Bear always revolves about the pole, and to our northern hemisphere never sets. The Chaldees and Arabs early mimed the stars, and grouped them in constellations. Their nomad life, in tending flocks and traveling often by night, tended to make them observe the stars, marking the seasons by their rise and setting, and using them as their nocturnal guide. This throws light on "Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons (the three stars in its tail)?" Nay, thou art dependent on him for guiding thee (Genesis 1:14; Genesis 8:22).
