- Aye, my heart trembleth at this also, and leapeth up out of its place:
- Hear attentively the roar of his voice, and the murmur going forth from his mouth.
- He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.
- After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency, and holdeth not back the flashes when his voice is heard.
- God thundereth marvellously with his voice, doing great things which we do not comprehend.
- For he saith to the snow, Fall on the earth!
and to the pouring rain, even the pouring rains of his might.
- He sealeth up the hand of every man;
that all men may know his work.
- And the wild beast goeth into its lair, and they remain in their dens.
- From the chamber [of the south] cometh the whirlwind;
and cold from the winds of the north.
- By the breath of God ice is given;
and the breadth of the waters is straitened.
- Also with plentiful moisture he loadeth the thick clouds, his light dispels the cloud;
- And they are turned every way by his guidance, that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the circuit of the earth,
- Whether he cause it to come as a rod, or for his land, or in mercy.
- Hearken unto this, Job;
stand still and discern the wondrous works of God.
- Dost thou know how +God hath disposed them, and how he causeth the lightning of his cloud to flash?
- Dost thou know about the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him that is perfect in knowledge?
- How thy garments become warm when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?
- Hast thou with him spread out the sky, firm, like a molten mirror?
- Teach us what we shall say unto him!
We cannot order [our words] by reason of darkness.
- Shall it be told him if I would speak?
if a man [so] say, surely he shall be swallowed up.
- And now [men] see not the light as it gleameth, it is [hidden] in the skies.
But the wind passeth by and cleareth them.
- From the north cometh gold;
with +God is terrible majesty.
- The Almighty, we cannot find him out: excellent in power, and in judgment, and in abundance of justice, he doth not afflict.
- Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
