Job 38

38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
38:2 Who [is] this that darkeneth counsel by words without
38:3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of
 thee, and answer thou me.
38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
 declare, if thou hast understanding.
38:5 Who hath laid the measures of it, if thou knowest? or who
 hath stretched the line upon it?
38:6 Upon what are the foundations of it fastened? or who laid
 its corner stone;
38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of
 God shouted for joy?
38:8 Or [who] shut up the sea with doors, when it broke forth,
 [as if] it had issued out of the womb?
38:9 When I made a cloud its garment, and thick darkness a
 swaddling band for it,
38:10 And broke up for it my decreed [place], and set bars and
38:11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and
 here shall thy proud waves be stayed.
38:12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; [and]
 caused the day-spring to know its place;
38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of earth, that the
 wicked might be shaken out of it?
38:14 It is turned as clay [to] the seal; and they stand as a
38:15 And from the wicked their light is withheld, and the high
 arm shall be broken.
38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast
 thou walked in the search of the depth?
38:17 Have the gates of death been opened to thee? or hast thou
 seen the doors of the shades of death?
38:18 Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if
 thou knowest it all.
38:19 Where [is] the way [where] light dwelleth? and [as for]
 darkness, where [is] its place,
38:20 That thou shouldest take it to its bound, and that thou
 shouldest know the paths [to] its house?
38:21 Knowest thou [it], because thou wast then born? or
 [because] the number of thy days [is] great?
38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast
 thou seen the treasures of the hail,
38:23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against
 the day of battle and war?
38:24 By what way is the light parted, [which] scattereth the
 east wind upon the earth?
38:25 Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of
 waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
38:26 To cause it to rain on the earth, [where] no man [is];
 [on] the wilderness in which [there is] no man;
38:27 To satisfy the desolate and waste [ground]; and to cause
 the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
38:28 Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of
 the dew?
38:29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of
 heaven, who hath gendered it?
38:30 The waters are hid as [with] a stone, and the face of the
 deep is frozen.
38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose
 the bands of Orion?
38:32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in its season? or canst
 thou guide Arcturus with its sons?
38:33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set its
 dominion on the earth?
38:34 Canst thou lift thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of
 waters may cover thee?
38:35 Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say to
 thee, Here we [are]?
38:36 Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given
 understanding to the heart?
38:37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the
 bottles of heaven,
38:38 When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave
 fast together?
38:39 Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite
 of the young lions,
38:40 When they couch in [their] dens, [and] abide in the covert
 to lie in wait?
38:41 Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones
 cry to God, they wander for want of food.
