- Yea, at this my heart trembleth, And is moved out of its place.
- Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, And the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
- He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven, And his lightening unto the ends of the earth.
- After it a voice roareth;
He thundereth with the voice of his majesty;
And he restraineth not [the lightnings] when his voice is heard.
- God thundereth marvellously with his voice;
Great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
- For he saith to the snow, Fall thou on the earth;
Likewise to the shower of rain, And to the showers of his mighty rain.
- He sealeth up the hand of every man, That all men whom he hath made may know [it].
- Then the beasts go into coverts, And remain in their dens.
- Out of the chamber [of the south] cometh the storm, And cold out of the north.
- By the breath of God ice is given;
And the breadth of the waters is straitened.
- Yea, he ladeth the thick cloud with moisture;
He spreadeth abroad the cloud of his lightning:
- And it is turned round about by his guidance, That they may do whatsoever he commandeth them Upon the face of the habitable world,
- Whether it be for correction, or for his land, Or for lovingkindness, that he cause it to come.
- Hearken unto this, O Job: Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
- Dost thou know how God layeth [his charge] upon them, And causeth the lightning of his cloud to shine?
- Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, The wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge?
- How thy garments are warm, When the earth is still by reason of the south [wind]?
- Canst thou with him spread out the sky, Which is strong as a molten mirror?
- Teach us what we shall say unto him;
[For] we cannot set [our speech] in order by reason of darkness.
- Shall it be told him that I would speak?
Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?
- And now men see not the light which is bright in the skies;
But the wind passeth, and cleareth them.
- Out of the north cometh golden splendor: God hath upon him terrible majesty.
- [Touching] the Almighty, we cannot find him out He is excellent in power;
And in justice and plenteous righteousness he will not afflict.
- Men do therefore fear him: He regardeth not any that are wise of heart.
