Do Animals Have Souls?

A Bit More On Animals And Souls

In Job 12:7-10 we read:

“Even birds and animals have much they could teach you; ask the creatures of the earth and sea for their wisdom.  ALL OF THEM KNOW THAT YAHWEH’S HAND MADE THEM.  In His hand are the SOULS of all His creatures and the breath of all humanity.”

Job expresses that all animals are aware of who was their Creator.  It is also unmistakably affirmed that all animals also have souls and that their souls are in God’s custody.  In Revelation 5:13, we are straightforwardly told that all creatures of the universe actually are capable of worshipping God with a sound mind, “Then I heard every creature in Heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:  “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
