Job Replies: God’s Majesty Is Unsearchable
1Then Job answered and said:
2“How you have #Isa. 40:29 helped him who has no power!
How you have saved #Gen. 49:24; Hos. 7:15the arm that has no strength!
3How you have #Ps. 73:24; James 1:5counseled him who has no wisdom,
and plentifully declared sound knowledge!
4With whose help have you uttered words,
and whose breath #Gen. 2:7has come out from you?
5The #Ps. 88:10dead tremble
under the waters and their inhabitants.
6Sheol is #Ps. 139:8; Prov. 15:11 naked before God,#26:6 Hebrew him
and #Rev. 9:11Abaddon has no covering.
7He #See ch. 9:8 stretches out the north over #[Gen. 1:2]the void
and hangs the earth on nothing.
8He #Prov. 30:4binds up the waters in his thick clouds,
and the cloud is not split open under them.
9He covers the face of the full moon#26:9 Or his throne
and #[ch. 36:29]spreads over it his cloud.
10He has inscribed #Prov. 8:29; [ch. 38:8-11; Ps. 33:7; Jer. 5:22]a circle on the face of the waters
at the boundary between light and darkness.
11 # ch. 9:6; Ps. 75:3 The pillars of heaven tremble
and are astounded at his #Ps. 104:7rebuke.
12By his power he #Isa. 51:15; Jer. 31:35 stilled the sea;
by his understanding he shattered #See ch. 9:13Rahab.
13 # [Ps. 33:6] By his wind the heavens were made fair;
his hand pierced #Isa. 27:1the fleeing serpent.
14Behold, these are but the outskirts of his #ch. 40:19 ways,
and how small #ch. 4:12a whisper do we hear of him!
But the thunder of his power who can understand?”
