Job 38

1 - Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

2 - Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?

3 - Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

4 - Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

5 - Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

6 - Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

7 - When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

8 - Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?

9 - When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,

10 - And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,

11 - And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

12 - Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;

13 - That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

14 - It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.

15 - And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.

16 - Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?

17 - Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?

18 - Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.

19 - Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,

20 - That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?

21 - Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?

22 - Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,

23 - Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

24 - By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?

25 - Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;

26 - To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;

27 - To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?

28 - Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?

29 - Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?

30 - The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

31 - Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

32 - Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

33 - Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

34 - Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?

35 - Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?

36 - Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

37 - Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,

38 - When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?

39 - Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,

40 - When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?

41 - Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.
