Job 37
King James 2000

1At this also my heart trembles, and is moved out of its place.

2Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goes out of his mouth.

3He directs it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.

4After it a voice roars: he thunders with the voice of his excellency; and he will not restrain them when his voice is heard.

5God thunders marvelously with his voice; great things does he, which we cannot comprehend.

6For he says to the snow, Be on the earth; likewise to the gentle rain, and to the heavy rain of his strength.

7He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

8Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.

9Out of the south comes the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

10By the breath of God ice is given: and the broad waters are frozen.

11Also with moisture he loads the thick cloud: he scatters his bright cloud:

12And it is turned around by his guidance: that they may do whatsoever he commands them upon the face of the whole earth.

13He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

14Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

15Do you know when God dispatched them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

16Do you know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him who is blameless in knowledge?

17How your garments are warm, when he quiets the earth by the south wind?

18Have you with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten mirror?

19Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech because of darkness.

20Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speaks, surely he shall be swallowed up.

21And now men can not look on the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passes, and clears them.

22Fair weather comes out of the north: with God is awesome majesty.

23As for the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in abundant justice: he will not afflict.

24Men do therefore fear him: he respects not any that are wise of heart.
