Job 37
Berean Study BibleKing James Bible
1At this my heart also pounds and leaps from its place.1At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place.
2Listen closely to the thunder of His voice and the rumbling that comes from His mouth.2Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
3He unleashes His lightning beneath the whole sky and sends it to the ends of the earth.3He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.
4Then there comes a roaring sound; He thunders with His majestic voice. He does not restrain the lightning when His voice resounds.4After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.
5God thunders wondrously with His voice; He does great things we cannot comprehend.5God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
6For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the gentle rain, ‘Pour out a mighty downpour.’6For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.
7He seals up the hand of every man, so that all men may know His work.7He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.
8The wild animals enter their lairs; they settle down in their dens.8Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.
9The tempest comes from its chamber, and the cold from the driving north winds.9Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
10By the breath of God the ice is formed and the watery expanses are frozen.10By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.
11He loads the clouds with moisture; He scatters His lightning through them.11Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:
12They swirl about, whirling at His direction, accomplishing all that He commands over the face of all the earth.12And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.
13Whether for punishment or for His land, He accomplishes this in His loving devotion.13He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.
14Listen to this, O Job; stand still and consider the wonders of God.14Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
15Do you know how God dispatches the clouds or makes the lightning flash?15Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?
16Do you understand how the clouds float, those wonders of Him who is perfect in knowledge?16Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?
17You whose clothes get hot when the land lies hushed under the south wind,17How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?
18can you, like Him, spread out the skies to reflect the heat like a mirror of bronze?18Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?
19Teach us what we should say to Him; we cannot draw up our case when our faces are in darkness.19Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.
20Should He be told that I want to speak? Would a man ask to be swallowed up?20Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.
21Now no one can gaze at the sun when it is bright in the skies after the wind has swept them clean.21And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.
22Out of the north He comes in golden splendor; awesome majesty surrounds Him.22Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.
23The Almighty is beyond our reach; He is exalted in power! In His justice and great righteousness, He does not oppress.23Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
24Therefore, men fear Him, for He is not partial to the wise in heart.”24Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
