in´floo - ens - iz ( מעדנּות , ma‛ădhannōth ): This word occurs only in   Job 38:31 the King James Version, "Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades?" the Revised Version (British and American) "the cluster of the Pleiades," margin "or chain , or sweet influences "; Delitzsch, Dillmann and others render "fetters," that which binds the group together; "influences," if correct, would refer to the seasons , which were believed to be regulated, so far, by the Pleiades (which see). In The Wisdom of Solomon 7:25, it is said of Wisdom that she is "a pure influence ( apórrhoia , the Revised Version (British and American) "effluence") flowing from the glory of the Almighty."
