Job 26

Job Replies: God’s Majesty Is Unsearchable

1Then Job answered and said:

2 How you have a  helped him who has no power!
How you have saved b  the arm that has no strength!
3How you have c  counseled him who has no wisdom,
and plentifully declared sound knowledge!
4With whose help have you uttered words,
and whose breath d  has come out from you?
5The e  dead tremble
under the waters and their inhabitants.
6Sheol is f  naked before God,
Hebrew him

and h  Abaddon has no covering.
7He i  stretches out the north over j  the void
and hangs the earth on nothing.
8He k  binds up the waters in his thick clouds,
and the cloud is not split open under them.
9He covers the face of the full moon
Or his throne

and m  spreads over it his cloud.
10He has inscribed n  a circle on the face of the waters
at the boundary between light and darkness.
11 o  The pillars of heaven tremble
and are astounded at his p  rebuke.
12By his power he q  stilled the sea;
by his understanding he shattered r  Rahab.
13 s  By his wind the heavens were made fair;
his hand pierced t  the fleeing serpent.
14Behold, these are but the outskirts of his u  ways,
and how small v  a whisper do we hear of him!
But the thunder of his power who can understand?”
