   1: Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind,
   2: "Who is this who darkens counsel By words without knowledge?
   3: Brace yourself like a man, For I will question you, then you answer me!
   4: "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if you have understanding.
   5: Who determined the measures of it, if you know? Or who stretched the line on it?
   6: Whereupon were the foundations of it fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone,
   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 from the womb,
   9: When I made clouds the garment of it, Thick darkness a swaddling-band for it,
   10: Marked out for it my bound, Set bars and doors,
   11: And said, 'Here you may come, but no further; Here shall your proud waves be stayed?'
   12: "Have you commanded the morning in your days, And caused the dawn to know its place;
   13: That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And shake the wicked out of it?
   14: It is changed as clay under the seal, And stands forth as a garment.
   15: From the wicked, their light is withheld, The high arm is broken.
   16: "Have you entered into the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in the recesses of the deep?
   17: Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Or have you seen the gates of the shadow of death?
   18: Have you comprehended the earth in its breadth? Declare, if you know it all.
   19: "What is the way to the dwelling of light? As for darkness, where is the place of it,
   20: That you should take it to the bound of it, That you should discern the paths to the house of it?
   21: Surely you know, for you were born then, And the number of your days is great!
   22: Have you entered the treasuries of the snow, Or have you 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 lightning distributed, Or the east wind scattered on the earth?
   25: Who has cut a channel for the flood water, Or the path for the thunderstorm;
   26: To cause it to rain on a land where no man is; On the wilderness, in which there is no man;
   27: To satisfy the waste and desolate ground, To cause the tender grass to spring forth?
   28: Does the rain have a father? Or who fathers the drops of dew?
   29: Out of whose womb came the ice? The gray frost of the sky, who has given birth to it?
   30: The waters become hard like stone, When the surface of the deep is frozen.
   31: "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loosen the cords of Orion?
   32: Can you lead forth the constellations in their season? Or can you guide the Bear with her cubs?
   33: Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you establish the dominion of it over the earth?
   34: "Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, That abundance of waters may cover you?
   35: Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go? Do they report to you, 'Here we are?'
   36: Who has put wisdom in the inward parts? Or who has given understanding to the mind?
   37: Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of the sky,
   38: When the dust runs into a mass, And the clods of earth stick together?
   39: "Can you hunt the prey for the lioness, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions,
   40: When they crouch in their dens, And lie in wait in the thicket?
   41: Who provides for the raven his prey, When his young ones cry to God, And wander for lack of food?
