Brenton Septuagint Translation
Elihu Proclaims God's Majesty
1At this also my heart is troubled, and moved out of its place.
2Hear thou a report by the anger of the Lord's wrath, and a discourse shall come out of his mouth.
3His dominion is under the whole heaven, and his light is at the extremities of the earth.
4After him shall be a cry with a loud voice; he shall thunder with the voice of his excellency, yet he shall not cause men to pass away, for one shall hear his voice.
5The Mighty One shall thunder wonderfully with his voice: for he has done great things which we knew not;
6commanding the snow, Be thou upon the earth, and the stormy rain, and the storm of the showers of his might.
7He seals up the hand of every man, that every man may know his own weakness.
8And the wild beasts come in under the covert, and rest in their lair.
9Troubles come on out of the secret chambers, and cold from the mountain-tops.
10And from the breath of the Mighty One he will send frost; and he guides the water in whatever way he pleases.
11And if a cloud obscures what is precious to him, his light will disperse the cloud.
12And he will carry round the encircling clouds by his governance, to perform their works: whatsoever he shall command them,
13this has been appointed by him on the earth, whether for correction, or for his land, or if he shall find him an object for mercy.
14Hearken to this, O Job: stand still, and be admonished of the power of the Lord.
15We know that god has disposed his works, having made light out of darkness.
16And he knows the divisions of the clouds, and the signal overthrows of the ungodly.
17But thy robe is warm, and there is quiet upon the land.
18Wilt thou establish with him foundations for the ancient heavens? they are strong as a molten mirror.
19Wherefore teach me, what shall we say to him? and let us cease from saying much.
20Have I a book or a scribe my me, that I may stand and put man to silence?
21But the light is not visible to all: it shines afar off in the heavens, as that which is from him in the clouds.
22From the north come the clouds shining like gold: in these great are the glory and honour of the Almighty;
23and we do not find another his equal in strength: as for him that judges justly, dost thou not think that he listens?
24Wherefore men shall fear him; and the wise also in heart shall fear him.
