1 But Job (Iyyov) answered and said:
2 “How have you helped him that is without power? How savest you the arm that hath no strength?
3 How have you counselled him that hath no wisdom? And how have you plentifully declared the thing as it is?
4 To whom have you uttered words? And whose spirit came from you?
5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.
6 55Hell (Sheol) is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.
9 He holdeth back the face of His throne, and spreadeth His cloud upon it.
10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at His reproof.
12 He divideth the sea with His power, and by His understanding He smiteth through the proud.
13 By His Spirit (Ruach) He hath garnished the heavens; His hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
14 Behold, these are parts of His ways, but how little a portion is heard of Him? But the thunder of His power who can understand?”
