Job 37

1At this also mine heart is astonied, and is mooued out of his place.

2Heare the sound of his voyce, and the noyse that goeth out of his mouth.

3He directeth it vnder the whole heauen, and his light vnto the endes of the world.

4After it a noyse soundeth: hee thundereth with the voyce of his maiestie, and hee will not stay them when his voyce is heard.

5God thundereth marueilously with his voyce: he worketh great things, which we know not.

6For he sayth to the snowe, Be thou vpon the earth: likewise to the small rayne and to the great rayne of his power.

7With the force thereof he shutteth vp euery man, that all men may knowe his worke.

8Then the beastes go into the denne, and remaine in their places.

9The whirlewind commeth out of the South, and the colde from the North winde.

10At the breath of God the frost is giuen, and the breadth of the waters is made narrowe.

11He maketh also the cloudes to labour, to water the earth, and scattereth the cloude of his light.

12And it is turned about by his gouernment, that they may doe whatsoeuer he commandeth them vpon the whole worlde:

13Whether it be for punishment, or for his lande, or of mercie, he causeth it to come.

14Hearken vnto this, O Iob: stand and consider the wonderous workes of God.

15Diddest thou knowe when God disposed them? and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

16Hast thou knowen the varietie of the cloude, and the wonderous workes of him, that is perfite in knowledge?

17Or howe thy clothes are warme, when he maketh the earth quiet through the South winde?

18Hast thou stretched out the heaues, which are strong, and as a molten glasse?

19Tell vs what we shall say vnto him: for we can not dispose our matter because of darknes.

20Shall it be told him when I speake? or shall man speake when he shalbe destroyed?

21And nowe men see not the light, which shineth in the cloudes, but the winde passeth and clenseth them.

22The brightnesse commeth out of the North: the praise thereof is to God, which is terrible.

23It is the Almightie: we can not finde him out: he is excellent in power and iudgement, and aboundant in iustice: he afflicteth not.

24Let men therefore feare him: for he will not regarde any that are wise in their owne conceit.
