Job: Who Can Understand God’s Majesty?

1Iob answered, and sayde:

2O how helpest thou the weake? what comforte geuest thou vnto him that hath no stregth?

3Where is ye coucell yt thou shuldest geue him, which hath no wysdome? Wilt thou so shewe thine excellent rightuousnes?

4Before whom hast thou spoken those wordes? Who made the breth to come out of ye mouth?

5The giauntes & worthies yt are slayne, & lye vnder ye worlde wt their copanions:

6yee & all they which dwell beneth in the hell are not hyd fro him, & the very destruccion it self ca not be kepte out of his sight.

7He stretcheth out ye north ouer the emptie, & hageth ye earth vpo nothinge.

8He byndeth ye water in his cloudes, that they fall not downe together.

9He holdeth back his stole, that it caa not be sene, and spredeth his cloudes before it.

10He hath copased the waters wt certayne boundes, vntill the daye & night come to an ende.

11The very pilers of heaue treble & quake at his reprofe.

12He stilleth the see with his power, & thorow his wysdome hath he set forth ye worlde.

13With his sprete hath he garnished the heaues, & with his hande hath he wounded the rebellious serpet.

14This is now a shorte summe of his doynges. But who is able sufficiently to rehearce his workes? Who can perceaue and vnderstonde ye thondre of his power?
