Job 26
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Job: Who Can Understand God’s Majesty?

1And Job will answer and say,

2How didst thou help to him of no strength? didst thou save the arm of no strength?

3How didst thou counsel to him of no wisdom? and didst thou make known help for abundance?

4And with whom didst thou announce words? and whose breath came forth from thee?

5The shades shall tremble from under the waters, and their inhabitants.

6Hades is naked before him, and no covering to destruction.

7He stretched out the north upon emptiness, he hung up the earth upon nothing.

8He bound up the waters in his clouds, and the cloud was not rent under them.

9Holding fast the face of the throne, he spread his cloud upon it.

10He marked out with a compass the law upon the face of the waters, even till the end of light with darkness.

11The pillars of the heavens shall be shaken, and be astonished from his reproof.

12By his power he caused the sea to tremble; by his understanding he smote through pride.

13By his spirit he polished the heavens; his hand pierced the flat serpent.

14Behold these the ends of his ways; how transient a sound of the word was heard in him! and the thunder of his might who shall understand?
