Job Chapter 37

37:1 "Yes, at this my heart trembles, And is moved out of its place.

37:2 Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, The sound that goes out of his mouth.

37:3 He sends it forth under the whole sky, And his lightning to the ends of the earth.

37:4 After it a voice roars. He thunders with the voice of his majesty; He doesn't hold back anything when his voice is heard.

37:5 God thunders marvelously with his voice. He does great things, which we can't comprehend.

37:6 For he says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth;' Likewise to the shower of rain, And to the showers of his mighty rain.

37:7 He seals up the hand of every man, That all men whom he has made may know it.

37:8 Then the animals take cover, And remain in their dens.

37:9 Out of its chamber comes the storm, And cold out of the north.

37:10 By the breath of God, ice is given, And the breadth of the waters is frozen.

37:11 Yes, he loads the thick cloud with moisture. He spreads abroad the cloud of his lightning.

37:12 It is turned round about by his guidance, That they may do whatever he commands them On the surface of the habitable world,

37:13 Whether it is for correction, or for his land, Or for loving kindness, that he causes it to come.

37:14 "Listen to this, Job: Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

37:15 Do you know how God controls them, And causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?

37:16 Do you know the workings of the clouds, The wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge?

37:17 You whose clothing is warm, When the earth is still by reason of the south wind?

37:18 Can you, with him, spread out the sky, Which is strong as a cast metal mirror?

37:19 Teach us what we shall tell him; For we can't make our case by reason of darkness.

37:20 Shall it be told him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?

37:21 Now men don't see the light which is bright in the skies, But the wind passes, and clears them.

37:22 Out of the north comes golden splendor; With God is awesome majesty.

37:23 We can't reach the Almighty, He is exalted in power; In justice and great righteousness he will not oppress.

37:24 Therefore men revere him. He doesn't regard any who are wise of heart."
