Who can understand how he spreads out the clouds, how he thunders from his pavilion?
He fills his hands with lightning and commands it to strike its mark.
He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth.
Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
