|New International Version (© 2011)|
Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice, to the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
King James Bible
Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
American Standard Version
Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, And the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
Young's Literal Translation
Hearken diligently to the trembling of His voice, Yea, the sound from His mouth goeth forth.
Job 37:2 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Hear attentively - "Hear with hearing." The words seem to intimate that there was actually at that time a violent storm of thunder and lightning, and that the successive peals were now breaking over the house, and the lightning flashing before their eyes. The storm continued till Elihu had finished, and out of that storm the Almighty spoke. See the beginning of the succeeding chapter, Job 38 (note).
The noise of his voice - The sudden clap.
And the sound that goeth out - The peal or continued rattling, pounding, and thumping, to the end of the peal. The whole is represented as the voice of God himself, and the thunder is immediately issuing from his mouth.
