Job, Chapter 37

37:1 Yes, at this my heart trembles, And is moved out of its place.
37:2 Hear carefully the noise of his voice, And the sound that goes out of his mouth.
37:3 He sends it forth under the whole heaven, And his lightning to the ends of the earth.
37:4 After it a voice roars; He thunders with the voice of his splendor; And he does not restrain [the lightnings] when his voice is heard.
37:5 God thunders marvelously with his voice; Great things he does, which we can't comprehend.
37:6 For he says to the snow, Fall on the earth; Likewise to the shower of rain, And to the showers of his mighty rain.
37:7 He seals up the hand of all of man, That all men whom he has made may know [it].
37:8 Then the beasts go into coverts, And stay in their dens.
37:9 Out of the chamber [of the south] comes the storm, And cold out of the north.
37:10 By the breath of God ice is given; And the width of the waters is straitened.
37:11 Yes, he loads the thick cloud with moisture; He spreads abroad the cloud of his lightning:
37:12 And it is turned round about by his guidance, That they may do whatever he commands them On the face of the habitable world,
37:13 Whether it is for correction, or for his land, Or for loving-kindness, that he causes it to come.
37:14 Listen to this, O Job: Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
37:15 Do you know how God lays [his charge] on them, And causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?
37:16 Do you know the balancings of the clouds, The wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge?
37:17 How your garments are warm, When the earth is still by reason of the south [wind]?
37:18 Can you with him spread out the sky, Which is strong as a molten mirror?
37:19 Teach us what we will say to him; [For] we can't set [our speech] in order by reason of darkness.
37:20 Will it be told to him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?
37:21 And now men don't see the light which is bright in the skies; But the wind passes, and clears them.
37:22 Out of the north comes golden splendor: God has on him awesome grandeur.
37:23 [Concerning] the Almighty, we can't find him out: He is excellent in power; And in justice and plenteous righteousness he will not afflict.
37:24 Men therefore fear him: He does not regard any who are wise of heart.
