1: And Job answered and said, 2: How hast thou helped the powerless; how saved the arm that is without strength! 3: How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom, and abundantly declared the thing as it is! 4: For whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee? 5: The shades tremble beneath the waters and the inhabitants thereof; 6: Sheol is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering. 7: He stretcheth out the north over empty space, he 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 covereth the face of his throne, he spreadeth his cloud upon it. 10: He hath traced a fixed circle over the waters, unto the confines of light and darkness. 11: The pillars of the heavens tremble and are astonished at his rebuke. 12: He stirreth up the sea by his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through Rahab. 13: By his Spirit the heavens are adorned; his hand hath formed the fleeing serpent. 14: Lo, these are the borders of his ways; but what a whisper of a word do we hear of him! And the thunder of his power, who can understand?
