Job Chapter 37 (Index)

001  At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place.

002  Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.

003  He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.

004  After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.

005  God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.

006  For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.

007  He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

008  Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.

009  Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

010  By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

011  Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:

012  And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.

013  He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

014  Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

015  Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

016  Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

017  How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?

018  Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?

019  Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.

020  Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.

021  And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.

022  Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.

023  Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.

024  Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
