1: Aye, my heart trembleth at this also, and leapeth up out of its place: 2: Hear attentively the roar of his voice, and the murmur going forth from his mouth. 3: He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth. 4: After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency, and holdeth not back the flashes when his voice is heard. 5: God thundereth marvellously with his voice, doing great things which we do not comprehend. 6: For he saith to the snow, Fall on the earth! and to the pouring rain, even the pouring rains of his might. 7: He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. 8: And the wild beast goeth into its lair, and they remain in their dens. 9: From the chamber [of the south] cometh the whirlwind; and cold from the winds of the north. 10: By the breath of God ice is given; and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11: Also with plentiful moisture he loadeth the thick clouds, his light dispels the cloud; 12: And they are turned every way by his guidance, that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the circuit of the earth, 13: Whether he cause it to come as a rod, or for his land, or in mercy. 14: Hearken unto this, Job; stand still and discern the wondrous works of God. 15: Dost thou know how God hath disposed them, and how he causeth the lightning of his cloud to flash? 16: Dost thou know about the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him that is perfect in knowledge? 17: How thy garments become warm when he quieteth the earth by the south wind? 18: Hast thou with him spread out the sky, firm, like a molten mirror? 19: Teach us what we shall say unto him! We cannot order [our words] by reason of darkness. 20: Shall it be told him if I would speak? if a man [so] say, surely he shall be swallowed up. 21: And now [men] see not the light as it gleameth, it is [hidden] in the skies. But the wind passeth by and cleareth them. 22: From the north cometh gold; with God is terrible majesty. 23: The Almighty, we cannot find him out: excellent in power, and in judgment, and in abundance of justice, he doth not afflict. 24: Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
