   1: And Jehovah answereth Job out of the whirlwind, and saith: --
   2: Who [is] this -- darkening counsel, By words without knowledge?
   3: Gird, I pray thee, as a man, thy loins, And I ask thee, and cause thou Me to know.
   4: Where wast thou when I founded earth? Declare, if thou hast known understanding.
   5: Who placed its measures -- if thou knowest? Or who hath stretched out upon it a line?
   6: On what have its sockets been sunk? Or who hath cast its corner-stone?
   7: In the singing together of stars of morning, And all sons of God shout for joy,
   8: And He shutteth up with doors the sea, In its coming forth, from the womb it goeth out.
   9: In My making a cloud its clothing, And thick darkness its swaddling band,
   10: And I measure over it My statute, And place bar and doors,
   11: And say, 'Hitherto come thou, and add not, And a command is placed On the pride of thy billows.'
   12: Hast thou commanded morning since thy days? Causest thou the dawn to know its place?
   13: To take hold on the skirts of the earth, And the wicked are shaken out of it,
   14: It turneth itself as clay of a seal And they station themselves as clothed.
   15: And withheld from the wicked is their light, And the arm lifted up is broken.
   16: Hast thou come in to springs of the sea? And in searching the deep Hast thou walked up and down?
   17: Revealed to thee were the gates of death? And the gates of death-shade dost thou see?
   18: Thou hast understanding, Even unto the broad places of earth! Declare -- if thou hast known it all.
   19: Where [is] this -- the way light dwelleth? And darkness, where [is] this -- its place?
   20: That thou dost take it unto its boundary, And that thou dost understand The paths of its house.
   21: Thou hast known -- for then thou art born And the number of thy days [are] many!
   22: Hast thou come in unto the treasure of snow? Yea, the treasures of hail dost thou see?
   23: That I have kept back for a time of distress, For a day of conflict and battle.
   24: Where [is] this, the way light is apportioned? It scattereth an east wind over the earth.
   25: Who hath divided for the flood a conduit? And a way for the lightning of the voices?
   26: To cause [it] to rain on a land -- no man, A wilderness -- no man in it.
   27: To satisfy a desolate and waste place, And to cause to shoot up The produce of the tender grass?
   28: Hath the rain a father? Or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
   29: From whose belly came forth the ice? And the hoar-frost of the heavens, Who hath begotten it?
   30: As a stone waters are hidden, And the face of the deep is captured.
   31: Dost thou bind sweet influences of Kimah? Or the attractions of Kesil dost thou open?
   32: Dost thou bring out Mazzaroth in its season? And Aysh for her sons dost thou comfort?
   33: Hast thou known the statutes of heaven? Or dost thou appoint Its dominion in the earth?
   34: Dost thou lift up to the cloud thy voice, And abundance of water doth cover thee?
   35: Dost thou send out lightnings, and they go And say unto thee, 'Behold us?'
   36: Who hath put in the inward parts wisdom? Or who hath given To the covered part understanding?
   37: Who doth number the clouds by wisdom? And the bottles of the heavens, Who doth cause to lie down,
   38: In the hardening of dust into hardness, And clods cleave together?
   39: Dost thou hunt for a lion prey? And the desire of young lions fulfil?
   40: When they bow down in dens -- Abide in a thicket for a covert?
   41: Who doth prepare for a raven his provision, When his young ones cry unto God? They wander without food.
