The Book of Job
1 – Then Job answered, and said:
2 – Whose helper art thou? is it of him that is weak? and dost thou hold up the arm of him that has no strength?
3 – To whom hast thou given counsel? perhaps to him that hath no wisdom, and thou hast shewn thy very great prudence.
4 – Whom hast thou desired to teach? was it not him that made life?
5 – Behold the giants groan under the waters, and they that dwell with them.
6 – Hell is naked before him, and there is no covering for destruction.
7 – He stretched out the north over the empty space, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
8 – He bindeth up the waters in his clouds, so that they break not out and fall down together.
9 – He withholdeth the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud over it.
10 – He hath set bounds about the waters, till light and darkness come to an end.
11 – The pillars of heaven tremble, and dread at his beck.
12 – By his power the seas are suddenly gathered together, and his wisdom has struck the proud one.
13 – His spirit hath adorned the heavens, and his obstetric hand brought forth the winding serpent.
14 – Lo, these things are said in part of his ways: and seeing we have heard scarce a little drop of his word, who shall be able to behold the thunder of his greatness?
