018:038:001
Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind,
and said,


018:038:002
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?


018:038:003
Gird up now thy loins like a man;
for I will demand of thee,
and answer thou me.


018:038:004
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare,
if thou hast understanding.


018:038:005
Who hath laid the measures thereof,
if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it?


018:038:006
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?
or who laid the corner stone thereof;


018:038:007
When the morning stars sang together,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?


018:038:008
Or who shut up the sea with doors,
when it brake forth,
as if it had issued out of the womb?


018:038:009
When I made the cloud the garment thereof,
and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,


018:038:010
And brake up for it my decreed place,
and set bars and doors,


018:038:011
And said,
Hitherto shalt thou come,
but no further:
and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?


018:038:012
Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days;
and caused the dayspring to know his place;


018:038:013
That it might take hold of the ends of the earth,
that the wicked might be shaken out of it?


018:038:014
It is turned as clay to the seal;
and they stand as a garment.


018:038:015
And from the wicked their light is withholden,
and the high arm shall be broken.


018:038:016
Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea?
or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?


018:038:017
Have the gates of death been opened unto thee?
or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?


018:038:018
Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth?
declare if thou knowest it all.


018:038:019
Where is the way where light dwelleth?
and as for darkness,
where is the place thereof,


018:038:020
That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof,
and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?


018:038:021
Knowest thou it,
because thou wast then born?
or because the number of thy days is great?


018:038:022
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?
or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,


018:038:023
Which I have reserved against the time of trouble,
against the day of battle and war?


018:038:024
By what way is the light parted,
which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?


018:038:025
Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters,
or a way for the lightning of thunder;


018:038:026
To cause it to rain on the earth,
where no man is;
on the wilderness,
wherein there is no man;


018:038:027
To satisfy the desolate and waste ground;
and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?


018:038:028
Hath the rain a father?
or who hath begotten the drops of dew?


018:038:029
Out of whose womb came the ice?
and the hoary frost of heaven,
who hath gendered it?


018:038:030
The waters are hid as with a stone,
and the face of the deep is frozen.


018:038:031
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades,
or loose the bands of Orion?


018:038:032
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season?
or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?


018:038:033
Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven?
canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?


018:038:034
Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds,
that abundance of waters may cover thee?


018:038:035
Canst thou send lightnings,
that they may go and say unto thee,
Here we are?


018:038:036
Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts?
or who hath given understanding to the heart?


018:038:037
Who can number the clouds in wisdom?
or who can stay the bottles of heaven,


018:038:038
When the dust groweth into hardness,
and the clods cleave fast together?


018:038:039
Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion?
or fill the appetite of the young lions,


018:038:040
When they couch in their dens,
and abide in the covert to lie in wait?


018:038:041
Who provideth for the raven his food?
when his young ones cry unto God,
they wander for lack of meat.
