Job 37


Elihu Relates the Sovereignty of The LORD

1And from this [2is disturbed 1my heart], and was dropped down from out of its place. 2Hear a report in anger of rage of the  lord! And a meditation from out of his mouth shall come forth. 3Underneath all the heaven is his sovereignty, and his light is upon the wings of the earth. 4After him [2shall yell out 1a voice]; he shall thunder with the sound of his insult; and he shall not bargain them, that one shall hear his voice. 5[3will thunder 1The 2strong one 5with 6his voice 4wonders]. [2a season 1He established] for animals, and they know [2of the fold 1the order]. Upon all these things [3is not 4receded 1your 2thought], nor is [3reconciled 1your 2heart] with your body. For he did great things which we knew not; 6ordering the snow, saying, Be upon the earth; and the winter rain of his command. 7In the hand of every man he seals up, that [3should know 1every 2man] his own weakness. 8[3entered 1And 2the wild beasts] under the protection, and are tranquil in their lair. 9From out of inner chambers come griefs, and from extremities chilliness. 10And from the breath of the strong one he appoints ice; and he steers the water where ever he wants. 11And if a chosen [2plasters over 1cloud], [2disperses 3the cloud 1then his light], 12and he [2the swirls 1shall turn aside] by his rule for performing their works -- all as much as he should give charge to them. 13These things were ordered by him upon the earth. Whether for instruction, whether for his land, whether for an object of his mercy, he shall find it. 14Give ear to these things, O Job! Stand admonished by the power of the  lord! 15We know that God established his works, [2light 1making] out of darkness. 16And he knows the distinction of clouds, and the extraordinary calamitous downfalls of the wicked. 17And your apparel is hot, but there is tranquility upon the earth from the south. 18Will you solidify with him for things grown old; things which are strong as the vision of a vessel? 19Why teach me, what shall we say to him? then let us cease [2much 1from saying]. 20Is there a book or scribe standing beside me, that [3a man 1standing 2I should quell]? 21[6to all 1But 4is not 5visible 2the 3light]; it is radiant among the things grown old, as if from him upon the clouds. 22From the north are clouds shining like gold; in these [7is great 1the 2glory 3and 4honor 5from 6the almighty]; 23and we do not find another likened to his strength. The one [2justly 1judging], do you not imagine that he listens? 24Therefore [2shall fear 3him 1men]; [6shall fear 1and 7him 2even 3the 4wise 5in heart].
