1: Yea, at this my heart trembleth, And is moved out of its place. 2: Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, And the sound that goeth out of his mouth. 3: He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven, And his lightening unto the ends of the earth. 4: After it a voice roareth; He thundereth with the voice of his majesty; And he restraineth not [the lightnings] when his voice is heard. 5: God thundereth marvellously with his voice; Great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. 6: 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. 7: He sealeth up the hand of every man, That all men whom he hath made may know [it]. 8: Then the beasts go into coverts, And remain in their dens. 9: Out of the chamber [of the south] cometh the storm, And cold out of the north. 10: By the breath of God ice is given; And the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11: Yea, he ladeth the thick cloud with moisture; He spreadeth abroad the cloud of his lightning: 12: And it is turned round about by his guidance, That they may do whatsoever he commandeth them Upon the face of the habitable world, 13: Whether it be for correction, or for his land, Or for lovingkindness, that he cause it to come. 14: Hearken unto this, O Job: Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. 15: Dost thou know how God layeth [his charge] upon them, And causeth the lightning of his cloud to shine? 16: Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, The wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge? 17: How thy garments are warm, When the earth is still by reason of the south [wind]? 18: Canst thou with him spread out the sky, Which is strong as a molten mirror? 19: Teach us what we shall say unto him; [For] we cannot set [our speech] in order by reason of darkness. 20: Shall it be told him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up? 21: And now men see not the light which is bright in the skies; But the wind passeth, and cleareth them. 22: Out of the north cometh golden splendor: God hath upon him terrible majesty. 23: [Touching] the Almighty, we cannot find him out He is excellent in power; And in justice and plenteous righteousness he will not afflict. 24: Men do therefore fear him: He regardeth not any that are wise of heart.
