Job, Chapter 40

   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?
