1: And Jehovah doth answer Job, and saith: -- 2: Is the striver with the Mighty instructed? The reprover of God, let him answer it. 3: And Job answereth Jehovah, and saith: -- 4: Lo, I have been vile, What do I return to Thee? My hand I have placed on my mouth. 5: Once I have spoken, and I answer not, And twice, and I add not. 6: And Jehovah answereth Job out of the whirlwind, and saith: -- 7: Gird, I pray thee, as a man, thy loins, I ask thee, and cause thou Me to know. 8: Dost thou also make void My judgment? Dost thou condemn Me, That thou mayest be righteous? 9: And an arm like God hast thou? And with a voice like Him dost thou thunder? 10: Put on, I pray thee, excellency and loftiness, Yea, honour and beauty put on. 11: Scatter abroad the wrath of thine anger, And see every proud one, and make him low. 12: See every proud one -- humble him, And tread down the wicked in their place. 13: Hide them in the dust together, Their faces bind in secret. 14: And even I -- I do praise thee, For thy right hand giveth salvation to thee. 15: Lo, I pray thee, Behemoth, that I made with thee: Grass as an ox he eateth. 16: Lo, I pray thee, his power [is] in his loins, And his strength in the muscles of his belly. 17: He doth bend his tail as a cedar, The sinews of his thighs are wrapped together, 18: His bones [are] tubes of brass, His bones [are] as a bar of iron. 19: He [is] a beginning of the ways of God, His Maker bringeth nigh his sword; 20: For food do mountains bear for him, And all the beasts of the field play there. 21: Under shades he lieth down, In a secret place of reed and mire. 22: Cover him do shades, [with] their shadow, Cover him do willows of the brook. 23: Lo, a flood oppresseth -- he doth not haste, He is confident though Jordan Doth come forth unto his mouth. 24: Before his eyes doth [one] take him, With snares doth [one] pierce the nose?
