Brenton Septuagint Translation
Job Humbles Himself Before God
6And the Lord yet again answered and spoke to Job out of the cloud, saying,
7Nay, gird up now thy loins like a man; and I will ask thee, and do thou answer me.
8Do not set aside my judgment: and dost thou think that I have dealt with thee in any other way, than that thou mightest appear to be righteous?
9Hast thou an arm like the Lord's? or dost thou thunder with a voice like his?
10Assume now a lofty bearing and power; and clothe thyself with glory and honour.
11And send forth messengers with wrath; and lay low every haughty one.
12Bring down also the proud man; and consume at once the ungodly.
13And hide them together in the earth; and fill their faces with shame.
14Then will I confess that thy right hand can save thee.
15But now look at the wild beasts with thee; they eat grass like oxen.
16Behold now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
17He sets up his tail like a cypress; and his nerves are wrapped together.
18His sides are sides of brass; and his backbone is as cast iron.
19This is the chief of the creation of the Lord; made to be played with by his angels.
20And when he has gone up to a steep mountain, he causes joy to the quadrupeds in the deep.
21He lies under trees of every kind, by the papyrus, and reed, and bulrush.
22And the great trees make a shadow over him with their branches, and so do the bushes of the field.
23If there should be a flood, he will not perceive it; he trust that Jordan will rush up into his mouth.
24Yet one shall take him in his sight; one shall catch him with a cord, and pierce his nose.
