But Job answered4 and said,4
How hast thou helped1 [him that is] without power? [how] savest52 thou the arm [that hath] no strength?
How hast thou counselled1 [him that hath] no wisdom? and [how] hast thou plentifully declared52 the thing as it is?
To whom hast thou uttered52 words? and whose spirit came1 from thee?
Dead [things] are formed34 from under the waters, and the inhabitants6 thereof.
Hell [is] naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
He stretcheth out6 the north over the empty place, [and] hangeth6 the earth upon nothing.
He bindeth up6 the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent8 under them.
He holdeth back18 the face of his throne, [and] spreadeth40 his cloud upon it.
He hath compassed1 the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
The pillars of heaven tremble34 and are astonished4 at his reproof.
He divideth1 the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth1 through the proud.
By his spirit he hath garnished14 the heavens; his hand hath formed31 the crooked serpent.
Lo, these [are] parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard8 of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?113
