JOB · Chapter 37
37:1 At this also my heart trembles, and is moved out of his place.
37:2 Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goes out of his mouth.
37:3 He directs it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.
37:4 After it a voice roars: he thunders with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.
37:5 God thunders marvellously with his voice; great things does he, which we cannot comprehend.
37:6 For he says to the snow, Be you on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.
37:7 He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.
37:8 Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.
37:9 Out of the south comes the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
37:10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.
37:11 Also by watering he wearies the thick cloud: he scatters his bright cloud:
37:12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commands them upon the face of the world in the earth.
37:13 He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.
37:14 Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
37:15 Do you know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?
37:16 Do you know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?
37:17 How your garments are warm, when he stills the earth by the south wind?
37:18 Have you with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?
37:19 Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.
37:20 Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.
37:21 And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passes, and cleanses them.
37:22 Fair weather comes out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.
37:23 Concerning the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
37:24 Men do therefore fear him: he respects not any that are wise of heart.
