1: Moreover Yahweh answered Job, 2: "Shall he who argues contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it." 3: Then Job answered Yahweh, 4: "Behold, I am of small account. What shall I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth. 5: I have spoken once, and I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further." 6: Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind, 7: "Now brace yourself like a man. I will question you, and you will answer me. 8: Will you even annul my judgment? Will you condemn me, that you may be justified? 9: Or have you an arm like God? Can you thunder with a voice like him? 10: "Now deck yourself with excellency and dignity. Array yourself with honor and majesty. 11: Pour forth the fury of your anger. Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low. 12: Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him. Crush the wicked in their place. 13: Hide them in the dust together. Bind their faces in the hidden place. 14: Then I will also admit to you That your own right hand can save you. 15: "See now, behemoth, which I made as well as you. He eats grass as an ox. 16: Look now, his strength is in his loins, His force is in the muscles of his belly. 17: He moves his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together. 18: His bones are like tubes of brass. His limbs are like bars of iron. 19: He is the chief of the ways of God. He who made him gives him his sword. 20: Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the animals of the field do play. 21: He lies under the lotus trees, In the covert of the reed, and the marsh. 22: The lotuses cover him with their shade. The willows of the brook surround him. 23: Behold, if a river overflows, he doesn't tremble. He is confident, though the Jordan swells even to his mouth. 24: Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare?
