Job 37

Job 37:1  
At this my heart is shaking; it is moved out of its place.

Job 37:2  
Give ear to the rolling noise of his voice; to the hollow sound which goes out of his mouth.

Job 37:3  
He sends it out through all the heaven, and his thunder-flame to the ends of the earth.

Job 37:4  
After it a voice is sounding, thundering out the word of his power; he does not keep back his thunder-flames; from his mouth his voice is sounding.

Job 37:5  
He does wonders, more than may be searched out; great things of which we have no knowledge;

Job 37:6  
For he says to the snow, Make the earth wet; and to the rain-storm, Come down.

Job 37:7  
He puts an end to the work of every man, so that all may see his work.

Job 37:8  
Then the beasts go into their holes, and take their rest.

Job 37:9  
Out of its place comes the storm-wind, and the cold out of its store-houses.

Job 37:10  
By the breath of God ice is made, and the wide waters are shut in.

Job 37:11  
The thick cloud is weighted with thunder-flame, and the cloud sends out its light;

Job 37:12  
And it goes this way and that, round about, turning itself by his guiding, to do whatever he gives orders to be done, on the face of his world of men,

Job 37:13  
For a rod, or for a curse, or for mercy, causing it to come on the mark.

Job 37:14  
Give ear to this, O Job, and keep quiet in your place; and take note of the wonders worked by God.

Job 37:15  
Have you knowledge of God's ordering of his works, how he makes the light of his cloud to be seen?

Job 37:16  
Have you knowledge of the balancings of the clouds, the wonders of him who has all wisdom?

Job 37:17  
You, whose clothing is warm, when the earth is quiet because of the south wind,

Job 37:18  
Will you, with him, make the skies smooth, and strong as a polished looking-glass?

Job 37:19  
Make clear to me what we are to say to him; we are unable to put our cause before him, because of the dark.

Job 37:20  
How may he have knowledge of my desire for talk with him? or did any man ever say, May destruction come on me?

Job 37:21  
And now the light is not seen, for it is dark because of the clouds; but a wind comes, clearing them away.

Job 37:22  
A bright light comes out of the north; God's glory is greatly to be feared.

Job 37:23  
There is no searching out of the Ruler of all: his strength and his judging are great; he is full of righteousness, doing no wrong.

Job 37:24  
For this cause men go in fear of him; he has no respect for any who are wise in heart.
