018:040:001
Moreover the LORD answered Job,
and said,


018:040:002
Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him?
he that reproveth God,
let him answer it.


018:040:003
Then Job answered the LORD,
and said,


018:040:004
Behold,
I am vile;
what shall I answer thee?
I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.


018:040:005
Once have I spoken;
but I will not answer:
yea,
twice;
but I will proceed no further.


018:040:006
Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the whirlwind,
and said,


018:040:007
Gird up thy loins now like a man:
I will demand of thee,
and declare thou unto me.


018:040:008
Wilt thou also disannul my judgment?
wilt thou condemn me,
that thou mayest be righteous?


018:040:009
Hast thou an arm like God?
or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?


018:040:010
Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency;
and array thyself with glory and beauty.


018:040:011
Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath:
and behold every one that is proud,
and abase him.


018:040:012
Look on every one that is proud,
and bring him low;
and tread down the wicked in their place.


018:040:013
Hide them in the dust together;
and bind their faces in secret.


018:040:014
Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.


018:040:015
Behold now behemoth,
which I made with thee;
he eateth grass as an ox.


018:040:016
Lo now,
his strength is in his loins,
and his force is in the navel of his belly.


018:040:017
He moveth his tail like a cedar:
the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.


018:040:018
His bones are as strong pieces of brass;
his bones are like bars of iron.


018:040:019
He is the chief of the ways of God:
he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.


018:040:020
Surely the mountains bring him forth food,
where all the beasts of the field play.


018:040:021
He lieth under the shady trees,
in the covert of the reed,
and fens.


018:040:022
The shady trees cover him with their shadow;
the willows of the brook compass him about.


018:040:023
Behold,
he drinketh up a river,
and hasteth not:
he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.


018:040:024
He taketh it with his eyes:
his nose pierceth through snares.
