Job 26

Job: Who Can Understand God’s Majesty?

1Then Job responded by saying:

2Whose assistant are you? Is he weak-minded? And do you sustain the arm of him that is not strong?

3To whom have you given advice? Perhaps it is to him that has no wisdom or prudence that you have revealed your many ideas.

4Who is it that you wanted to teach? Was it not him that created the breath of life?

5Behold, giant things groan under the waters, and they dwell with them.

6The underworld is naked before him, and there is no covering for perdition.

7He stretched out the North over emptiness, and he suspended the land over nothing.

8He secures the waters in his clouds, so that they do not burst forth downward all at once.

9He holds back the face of his throne, and he stretches his cloud over it.

10He has set limits around the waters, until light and darkness shall reach their limit.

11The pillars of heaven tremble and are frightened at his nod.

12By his strength, the seas suddenly gather together, and his foresight has struck the arrogant.

13His spirit has adorned the heavens, and his birthing hand has brought forth the winding serpent.

14Behold, these things have been said about his ways in part, and, since we barely have heard a small drop of his word, who will be able to gaze upon the thunder of his greatness?
