New International Version
Now no one can look at the sun, bright as it is in the skies after the wind has swept them clean.
King James Bible
And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.
Darby Bible Translation
And now [men] see not the light as it gleameth, it is [hidden] in the skies. But the wind passeth by and cleareth them.
World English Bible
Now men don't see the light which is bright in the skies, but the wind passes, and clears them.
Young's Literal Translation
And now, they have not seen the light, Bright it is in the clouds, And the wind hath passed by and cleanseth them.
Job 37:21 Parallel

Much less can any gaze on the majesty of God. Every creature must sink before him. What execrably dangerous folly in man to attempt to arraign His conduct!

Therefore it seems that the heavens should not have been opened unto Him. Objection 2: Further, the opening of the heavens is understood either in a corporal or in a spiritual sense. But it cannot be understood …
Saint Thomas Aquinas—Summa Theologica
The Justice of God
Should he be told that I want to speak? Would anyone ask to be swallowed up?
Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty.
