26

1 Bvt Iob answered, and sayde,

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

3 Whome counsellest thou? him that hath no wisedome? thou shewest right well as the thing is.

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

5 Dead [things] are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

6 Hell [is] naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

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

8 He bindeth the waters in his cloudes, and the cloude is not broken vnder them.

9 He holdeth backe the face of his throne: and spreadeth his cloude vpon it.

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

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

12 The sea is calme by his power, and by his vnderstanding he smiteth the pride thereof.

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

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