Brenton Septuagint Translation
Job: who Can Understand God's Majesty
1But Job answered and said,
2To whom dost thou attach thyself, or whom art thou going to assist? is it not he that has much strength, and he who has a strong arm?
3To whom hast thou given counsel? is it not to him who has all wisdom? whom wilt thou follow? is it not one who has the greatest power?
4To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose breath is it that has come forth from thee?
5Shall giants be born from under the water and the inhabitants thereof?
6Hell is naked before him, and destruction has no covering.
7He stretches out the north wind upon nothing, and he upon nothing hangs the earth;
8binding water in his clouds, and the cloud is not rent under it.
9He keeps back the face of his throne, stretching out his cloud upon it.
10He has encompassed the face of the water by an appointed ordinance, until the end of light and darkness.
11The pillars of heaven are prostrate and astonished at his rebuke.
12He has calmed the sea with his might, and by his wisdom the whale has been overthrown.
13And the barriers of heaven fear him, and by a command he has slain the apostate dragon.
14Behold, these are parts of his way; and we will hearken to him at the least intimation of his word: but the strength of his thunder who knows, when he shall employ it?
