Job 40
Douay-Rheims Bible

Job Humbles Himself Before God

1{39:31}And the Lord went on, and said to Job:

2{39:32}Shall he that contendeth with God be so easily silenced? surely he that reproveth God, ought to answer him.

3{39:33}Then Job answered the Lord, and said:

4{39:34}What can I answer, who hath spoken inconsiderately? I will lay my hand upon my mouth.

5{39:35}One thing I have spoken, which I wish I had not said: and another, to which I will add no more.

6{1}And the Lord answering Job out of the whirlwind, said:

7{2}Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and do thou tell me.

8{3}Wilt thou make void my judgment: and condemn me, that thou mayst be justified?

9{4}And hast thou an arm like God, and canst thou thunder with a voice like him?

10{5}Clothe thyself with beauty, and set thyself up on high, and be glorious, and put on goodly garments.

11{6}Scatter the proud in thy indignation, and behold every arrogant man, and humble him.

12{7}Look on all that are proud, and confound them, and crush the wicked in their place,

13{8}Hide them in the dust together, and plunge their faces into the pit.

14{9}Then I will confess that thy right hand is able to save thee.

15{10}Behold behemoth whom I made with thee, he eateth grass like an ox.

16{11}His strength is in his loins, and his force in the navel of his belly.

17{12}He setteth up his tail like a cedar, the sinews of his testicles are wrapped together.

18{13}His bones are like pipes of brass, his gristle like plates of iron.

19{14}He is the beginning of the ways of God, who made him, he will apply his sword.

20{15}To him the mountains bring forth grass: there all the beasts of the field shall play.

21{16}He sleepeth under the shadow, in the covert of the reed, and in moist places.

22{17}The shades cover his shadow, the willows of the brook shall compass him about.

23{18}Behold, he will drink up a river, and not wonder: and he trusteth that the Jordan may run into his mouth.

24{19}In his eyes as with a hook he shall take him, and bore through his nostrils with stakes.
