- Then Job made answer and said,
- How have you given help to him who has no power!
how have you been the salvation of the arm which has no strength!
- How have you given teaching to him who has no wisdom, and fully made clear true knowledge!
- To whom have your words been said?
and whose spirit came out from you?
- The shades in the underworld are shaking;
the waters and those living in them.
- The underworld is uncovered before him, and Destruction has no veil.
- By his hand the north is stretched out in space, and the earth is hanging on nothing.
- By him the waters are shut up in his thick clouds, and the cloud does not give way under them.
- By him the face of his high seat is veiled, and his cloud stretched out over it.
- By him a circle is marked out on the face of the waters, to the limits of the light and the dark.
- The pillars of heaven are shaking, and are overcome by his sharp words.
- By his power the sea was made quiet;
and by his wisdom Rahab was wounded.
- By his wind the heavens become bright: by his hand the quickly moving snake was cut through.
- See, these are only the outskirts of his ways;
and how small is that which comes to our ears about him!
But the thunder of his acts of power is outside all knowledge.
