Job 26

1Job reproveth Bildad; 5but acknowledgeth God's power and wisdom to be infinite and unsearchable.

1 But Job answered and said,

2 How hast thou 1helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

3 How hast 1thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and 2how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?

4 1To whom hast thou uttered words? and 2whose spirit came from thee?

5 1Dead things are formed from under the waters, aand the inhabitants thereof.

6 1Hell is naked before him, and 2destruction hath no covering.

7 He 1stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

8 He 1bindeth up the waters in 2his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

9 He 1holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

10 He 1hath compassed the waters with bounds, auntil the day and night come to an end.

11 The 1pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

12 He 1divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the aproud.

13 By 1his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed 2the crooked serpent.

14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but 1how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
