Job Chapter 37

1God is terrible in his great works: 15his wisdom is unsearchable in them: 23the excellence of his perfections ought to impress men with lowly fear.
1 At this also my heart 1trembleth, and is moved out of his place.
2 aHear attentively the 1noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
3 He 1directeth it under the whole heaven, and his alightning unto the bends of the earth.
4 After it a 1voice roareth: he 2thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.
5 God 1thundereth marvellously with his voice; 2great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
6 For 1he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; alikewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.
7 He 1sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may 2know his work.
8 Then the beasts 1go into dens, and remain in their places.
9 aOut of the south cometh the 1whirlwind: and cold out of the bnorth.
10 By 1the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.
11 Also by 1watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he 2scattereth ahis bright cloud:
12 And it is 1turned round about by his counsels: that they may do 2whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.
13 He 1causeth it to come, whether for acorrection, or for his land, 2or for mercy.
14 Hearken unto this, O Job: 1stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
15 1Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?
16 Dost thou know the 1balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is 2perfect in knowledge?
17 How 1thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?
18 Hast thou with him 1spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?
19 1Teach us what we shall say unto him; for 2we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.
20 Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely 1he shall be swallowed up.
21 And now men 1see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.
22 aFair weather cometh 1out of the north: 2with God 3is terrible majesty.
23 touching the Almighty, 1we cannot find him out: he is 2excellent in power, and in 3judgment, and in 4plenty of justice: he 5will not afflict.
24 Men do 1therefore fear him: he 2respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
