   1: Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
   2: Who [is] this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
   3: Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
   4: Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
   5: Who hath laid the measures of it, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
   6: Upon what are the foundations of it fastened? or who laid its corner stone;
   7: When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
   8: Or [who] shut up the sea with doors, when it broke forth, [as if] it had issued out of the womb?
   9: When I made a cloud its garment, and thick darkness a swaddling band for it,
   10: And broke up for it my decreed [place], and set bars and doors,
   11: And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed.
   12: Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; [and] caused the day-spring to know its place;
   13: That it might take hold of the ends of earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
   14: It is turned as clay [to] the seal; and they stand as a garment.
   15: And from the wicked their light is withheld, and the high arm shall be broken.
   16: Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
   17: Have the gates of death been opened to thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shades of death?
   18: Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
   19: Where [is] the way [where] light dwelleth? and [as for] darkness, where [is] its place,
   20: That thou shouldest take it to its bound, and that thou shouldest know the paths [to] its house?
   21: Knowest thou [it], because thou wast then born? or [because] the number of thy days [is] great?
   22: Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
   23: Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
   24: By what way is the light parted, [which] scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
   25: Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
   26: To cause it to rain on the earth, [where] no man [is]; [on] the wilderness in which [there is] no man;
   27: To satisfy the desolate and waste [ground]; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
   28: Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of the dew?
   29: Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
   30: The waters are hid as [with] a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
   31: Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
   32: Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in its season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with its sons?
   33: Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set its dominion on the earth?
   34: Canst thou lift thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
   35: Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say to thee, Here we [are]?
   36: Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
   37: Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
   38: When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
   39: Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
   40: When they couch in [their] dens, [and] abide in the covert to lie in wait?
   41: Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry to God, they wander for want of food.
