Job’s Reply to Bildad

1Then Job answered:

2How you have helpeda the powerless

and delivered the arm that is weak!

3How you have counseled the unwisea

and abundantly provided insight!

4With whom did you speak these words?

Whose breath came out of your mouth?

5The departed spirits tremble

beneath the waters and all that inhabit them.a

6Sheola is naked before God,

and Abaddonb has no covering.c

7He stretches the northern skies over empty space;

he hangs the earth on nothing.

8He wraps up the water in his clouds,

yet the clouds do not burst beneath its weight.a

9He obscures the view of his throne,

spreading his cloud over it.

10He laid out the horizon on the surface of the watersa

at the boundary between light and darkness.

11The pillars that hold up the sky tremble,

astounded at his rebuke.a

12By his power he stirreda the sea,

and by his understanding he crushed Rahab.b

13By his breath the heavens gained their beauty;

his hand pierced the fleeing serpent.a a

14These are but the fringes of his ways;

how faint is the word we hear of him!

Who can understand his mighty thunder?
