Job 37
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1“Also, my heart trembles at this, || And it moves from its place.

2Listen diligently to the trembling of His voice, || Indeed, the sound goes forth from His mouth.

3He directs it under the whole heavens, || And its light [is] over the skirts of the earth.

4A voice roars after it—He thunders with the voice of His excellence, || And He does not hold them back, || When His voice is heard.

5God thunders with His voice wonderfully, || Doing great things and we do not know.

6For He says to snow: Be [on] the earth. And the small rain and great rain of His power.

7Into the hand of every man he seals, || For the knowledge by all men of His work.

8And the beast enters into [its] lair, || And it continues in its habitations.

9From the inner chamber comes a windstorm, || And from scatterings winds—cold,

10From the breath of God is frost given, || And the breadth of waters is constricted,

11Indeed, by filling He presses out a cloud, [and] His light scatters a cloud.

12And it is turning itself around by His counsels, || For their doing all He commands them, || On the face of the habitable earth.

13Whether for a rod, or for His land, || Or for kindness—He causes it to come.

14Hear this, O Job, || Stand and consider the wonders of God.

15Do you know when God places them, || And caused the light of His cloud to shine?

16Do you know the balancings of a cloud? The wonders of the Perfect in knowledge?

17How your garments [are] warm, || In the quieting of the earth from the south?

18You have made an expanse with Him || For the clouds—strong as a hard mirror!

19Let us know what we say to Him, || We do not set in array because of darkness.

20Is it declared to Him that I speak? If a man has spoken, surely he is swallowed up.

21And now, they have not seen the light, || It [is] bright in the clouds, || And the wind has passed by and cleanses them.

22It comes from the golden north, || Fearful splendor [is] beside God.

23The Mighty! We have not found Him out, || High in power and judgment, || He does not answer! And abundant in righteousness,

24Therefore men fear Him, || He does not see any of the wise of heart.”
