The North: Bible students have suggested that the north is a symbol of the permanent or the eternal, perhaps because the polar stars were permanently visible in the sky. It is the place of God’s celestial dwelling (Isa. ) and from which His glory descends (Job ) with blessings or . The Bible Symbols List is searchable and filterable. The Search box is at the top-right of the Page (Light-Blue Box), and the filters are at the top of each column (Light-Blue Box).
