Job: who Can Understand God's Majesty
1And Job answered and said,
2How hast thou helped the powerless; how saved the arm that is without strength!
3How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom, and abundantly declared the thing as it is!
4For whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?
5The shades tremble beneath the waters and the inhabitants thereof;
6Sheol is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
7He stretcheth out the north over empty space, he hangeth the earth upon nothing;
8He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds, and the cloud is not rent under them.
9He covereth the face of his throne, he spreadeth his cloud upon it.
10He hath traced a fixed circle over the waters, unto the confines of light and darkness.
11The pillars of the heavens tremble and are astonished at his rebuke.
12He stirreth up the sea by his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through Rahab.
13By his Spirit the heavens are adorned; his hand hath formed the fleeing serpent.
14Lo, these are the borders of his ways; but what a whisper of a word do we hear of him! And the thunder of his power, who can understand?
