Curdle

CURDLE

kur'-dl (qapha', "to congeal," "harden," "curdle"):

Occurs in Job 10:10, "Hast thou not .... curdled me like cheese?" i.e. made him take solid form. "The formation of the embryo is a mystery on which the Hebrew dwells with a deep and reverential awe: compare Psalms 139:13-16." These similes are often met with in the Koran and oriental poetry. See Speaker's Commentary in the place cited
