American Standard Version
Job, Chapter 37

   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.
