How can you ignore this scripture as to God's REVEALING His knowledge of the wonders of snow 5000 years before the microscope?

Easy, as no knowledge was revealed. You're taking modern scientific knowledge and pasting it atop an english translation of a bronze age mythologicla text . I see nothing in the quoted passage about snowflakes being unique, or crystalline or any other knowledge.

Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil
Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet
All of a sudden i found myself in love with the world
And so there was only one thing I could do

Re: No "interpretation" is required or necessary.
But how can my "interpretation" be an "interpretation" per say, when a plain surface reading of the text confirm it's meaning?

Because the text doesn't mention crystals, or the uniqueness of each snowflake, you are interpreting " treasures" to mean these things.
