1: Then Job answered and said, 2: How hast thou helped him that is without power! How hast thou saved the arm that hath no strength! 3: How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom, And plentifully declared sound knowledge! 4: To whom hast thou uttered words? And whose spirit came forth from thee? 5: They that are deceased tremble Beneath the waters and the inhabitants thereof. 6: Sheol is naked before [God], And Abaddon hath no covering. 7: He stretcheth out the north over empty space, And hangeth the earth upon nothing. 8: He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; And the cloud is not rent under them. 9: He incloseth the face of his throne, And spreadeth his cloud upon it. 10: He hath described a boundary upon the face of the waters, Unto the confines of light and darkness. 11: The pillars of heaven tremble And are astonished at his rebuke. 12: He stirreth up the sea with his power, And by his understanding he smiteth through Rahab. 13: By his Spirit the heavens are garnished; His hand hath pierced the swift serpent. 14: Lo, these are but the outskirts of his ways: And how small a whisper do we hear of him! But the thunder of his power who can understand?
