International Standard Version
1In reply, Job responded:
2"What a help you are to the weak! How powerfully you deliver those without strength!
3What counsel you provide to the fool! What insight you provide so abundantly!
4Who helped you say all of this? Who inspired you?"
5"The ghosts of the dead writhe under the waters along with those who live there with them.
6Sheol is naked before God and Abaddon has no clothes.
7He spreads out the north over empty space, suspending the earth over nothing.
8"He restricts the waters within clouds and the clouds don't burst open under them.
9He has enclosed the face of the full moon and spread his clouds over it.
10He has delimited a boundary over the surface of the oceans as a limit between light and darkness.
11The pillars of the heavens tremble and are astounded at his rebuke.
12By his power he disturbs the sea; and with his skill he shatters the sea monster.
13he clears the skies with his wind; his hands have pierced the fleeing serpent.
14Indeed, these are the fringes of his ways, and how faint is the whisper we've heard of it! But who can comprehend the thunder of his might?"
