Young's Literal Translation
Elihu Proclaims God's Majesty
1Also, at this my heart trembleth, And it moveth from its place.
2Hearken diligently to the trembling of His voice, Yea, the sound from His mouth goeth forth.
3Under the whole heavens He directeth it, And its light [is] over the skirts of the earth.
4After it roar doth a voice — He thundereth with the voice of His excellency, And He doth not hold them back, When His voice is heard.
5God thundereth with His voice wonderfully, Doing great things and we know not.
6For to snow He saith, ‘Be [on] the earth.’ And the small rain and great rain of His power.
7Into the hand of every man he sealeth, For the knowledge by all men of His work.
8And enter doth the beast into covert, And in its habitations it doth continue.
9From the inner chamber cometh a hurricane, And from scatterings winds — cold,
10From the breath of God is frost given, And the breadth of waters is straitened,
11Yea, by filling He doth press out a cloud, Scatter a cloud doth His light.
12And it is turning itself round by His counsels, For their doing all He commandeth them, On the face of the habitable earth.
13Whether for a rod, or for His land, Or for kindness — He doth cause it to come.
14Hear this, O Job, Stand and consider the wonders of God.
15Dost thou know when God doth place them, And caused to shine the light of His cloud?
16Dost thou know the balancings of a cloud? The wonders of the Perfect in knowledge?
17How thy garments [are] warm, In the quieting of the earth from the south?
18Thou hast made an expanse with Him For the clouds — strong as a hard mirror!
19Let us know what we say to Him, We set not in array because of darkness.
20Is it declared to Him that I speak? If a man hath spoken, surely he is swallowed up.
21And now, they have not seen the light, Bright it [is] in the clouds, And the wind hath passed by and cleanseth them.
22From the golden north it cometh, Beside God [is] fearful honour.
23The Mighty! we have not found Him out, High in power and judgment, He doth not answer! And abundant in righteousness,
24Therefore do men fear Him, He seeth not any of the wise of heart.
