Job 40
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.
