The upper limb of the human body used to symbolize power and strength. Such power can oppress people (Job 35:9), but such arms will be broken (Job 38:15). No human arm or power is comparable to God's (Job 40:9). In prayer the faithful can ask God to break the arm of the wicked (Psalms 10:15). Human arms cannot save (Psalms 44:3). God's outstretched arm does (Exodus 6:6; Exodus 15:16; Deuteronomy 5:15). People can trust in God's arm (Isaiah 51:5). On seeing Mary as she waited for the birth of Jesus, Elizabeth confessed that in bringing Jesus, God showed “strength with his arm” (Luke 1:51).
