Job 26
New King James VersionInternational Standard Version
1But Job answered and said:1In reply, Job responded:
2“How have you helped him who is without power? How have you saved the arm that has no strength?2"What a help you are to the weak! How powerfully you deliver those without strength!
3How have you counseled one who has no wisdom? And how have you declared sound advice to many?3What counsel you provide to the fool! What insight you provide so abundantly!
4To whom have you uttered words? And whose spirit came from you?4Who helped you say all of this? Who inspired you?"
5“The dead tremble, Those under the waters and those inhabiting them.5"The ghosts of the dead writhe under the waters along with those who live there with them.
6Sheol is naked before Him, And Destruction has no covering.6Sheol is naked before God and Abaddon has no clothes.
7He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.7He spreads out the north over empty space, suspending the earth over nothing.
8He binds up the water in His thick clouds, Yet the clouds are not broken under it.8"He restricts the waters within clouds and the clouds don't burst open under them.
9He covers the face of His throne, And spreads His cloud over it.9He has enclosed the face of the full moon and spread his clouds over it.
10He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters, At the boundary of light and darkness.10He has delimited a boundary over the surface of the oceans as a limit between light and darkness.
11The pillars of heaven tremble, And are astonished at His rebuke.11The pillars of the heavens tremble and are astounded at his rebuke.
12He stirs up the sea with His power, And by His understanding He breaks up the storm.12By his power he disturbs the sea; and with his skill he shatters the sea monster.
13By His Spirit He adorned the heavens; His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.13he clears the skies with his wind; his hands have pierced the fleeing serpent.
14Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways, And how small a whisper we hear of Him! But the thunder of His power who can understand?”14Indeed, these are the fringes of his ways, and how faint is the whisper we've heard of it! But who can comprehend the thunder of his might?"
