Iyoḇ (Job) 26
1And Iyoḇ answered and said,
2“How have you helped the powerless, saved an arm not strong?
3How have you given counsel to the unwise, or declared sound advice to many?
4With whom have you spoken words? And whose spirit came from you?
5The dead wait – those under the waters and those inhabiting them.
6She’ol is naked before Him, and destruction has no covering.
7He it was who stretched out the north over emptiness, hanging the earth upon space,
8binding up waters in His thick clouds, and the cloud is not torn under them,
9covering the surface of His throne, spreading His cloud over it.
10A law of encirclement on the face of the waters – until the end of light with darkness.
11The columns of the heavens tremble, and are stunned at His reproof.
12By His power He has calmed the sea, and by His understanding He struck down Rahaḇ.
13By His Spirit He adorned the heavens. His hand whirled the fleeing serpent.
14See, these are the fringes of His ways, and how little a matter is heard of Him! And who understands the thunder of His power?”
