JOB 40

Jb 40:1And Jehovah answered Job and said,

Jb 40:2Shall one who finds fault contend with the Almighty? / Let him who argues with God answer it.

Jb 40:3Then Job answered Jehovah and said,

Jb 40:4Indeed, I am worthless. What shall I reply to You? / I lay my hand over my mouth.

Jb 40:5I have spoken once, and I will not answer; / And twice, and I will proceed no further.

Jb 40:6And Jehovah answered Job out of the whirlwind and said,

Jb 40:7Gird up now your loins like a mighty man; / For I will ask of you, and you shall inform Me.

Jb 40:8Will you indeed annul My judgment? / Will you condemn Me so that you may be justified?

Jb 40:9Or do you have an arm like God’s, / And can you thunder with a voice like His?

Jb 40:10Deck yourself now with majesty and excellency, / And array yourself with honor and splendor.

Jb 40:11Pour forth the overflowings of your anger, / And look upon everyone who is proud, and abase him.

Jb 40:12Look upon everyone who is proud; bring him down; / And tread down the wicked where they stand.

Jb 40:13Hide them in the dust together; / Bind their faces in the hidden place.

Jb 40:14Then even I will praise you, / That your own right hand can save you.

Jb 40:15Behold now the behemoth, which I made as well as you: / He eats grass like the ox.

Jb 40:16Behold now, his strength is in his loins, / And his power is in the muscles of his belly.

Jb 40:17He bends his tail like a cedar; / The sinews of his thighs knit together.

Jb 40:18His bones are like bronze tubes; / His limbs, like iron bars.

Jb 40:19He is the first of God’s ways; / Only his Maker can approach him with His sword.

Jb 40:20For the mountains yield food for him, / Where every animal of the field plays.

Jb 40:21Under the lotus plants he lies down, / In the covert of the reed and the marsh.

Jb 40:22The lotus plants cover him with their shade; / The willows of the brook surround him.

Jb 40:23Indeed, if a river overflows, he does not tremble; / He is confident, though the Jordan rushes against his mouth.

Jb 40:24Will anyone catch him while he is watching, / Or pierce his nose with a snare?
