1: Then Job made answer and said, 2: How have you given help to him who has no power! how have you been the salvation of the arm which has no strength! 3: How have you given teaching to him who has no wisdom, and fully made clear true knowledge! 4: To whom have your words been said? and whose spirit came out from you? 5: The shades in the underworld are shaking; the waters and those living in them. 6: The underworld is uncovered before him, and Destruction has no veil. 7: By his hand the north is stretched out in space, and the earth is hanging on nothing. 8: By him the waters are shut up in his thick clouds, and the cloud does not give way under them. 9: By him the face of his high seat is veiled, and his cloud stretched out over it. 10: By him a circle is marked out on the face of the waters, to the limits of the light and the dark. 11: The pillars of heaven are shaking, and are overcome by his sharp words. 12: By his power the sea was made quiet; and by his wisdom Rahab was wounded. 13: By his wind the heavens become bright: by his hand the quickly moving snake was cut through. 14: 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.
