The tempest comes out from its chamber, the cold from the driving winds.
King James Bible
Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
American Standard Version
Out of the chamber of the south cometh the storm, And cold out of the north.
Young's Literal Translation
From the inner chamber cometh a hurricane, And from scatterings winds -- cold,
Job 37:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Out of the south cometh the whirlwind - See the note on Job 9:9. What is rendered south here, is there rendered chambers. Mr. Good translates here, the utmost zone. The Chaldee: - "From the supreme chamber the commotion shall come; and from the cataracts of Arcturus the cold." What the whirlwind, סופה suphah, is, we know not. It might have been a wind peculiar to that district; and it is very possible that it was a scorching wind, something like the simoom.
