New International Version
Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.
King James Bible
Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
Darby Bible Translation
Gird up now thy loins like a man; and I will demand of thee, and inform thou me.
World English Bible
Brace yourself like a man, for I will question you, then you answer me!
Young's Literal Translation
Gird, I pray thee, as a man, thy loins, And I ask thee, and cause thou Me to know.
Job 38:3 Parallel

The most impressive and convincing manner of arguing is allowed to be that by interrogation, which the Almighty here adopts. The best orations delivered by the ancients were formed after this manner. That celebrated oration of Cicero against Catiline, which is allowed to be his masterpiece, begins with a multitude of short questions, closely pressed upon each other. See the end of the chapter, Job 38:40 (note).
