37

1 At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place.

2 Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound [that] goeth out of his mouth.

3 He directeth it vnder the whole heauen, and his light vnto the endes of the world.

4 After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.

5 God thundereth marueilously with his voyce: he worketh great things, which we know not.

6 For he saith to the snow, Be thou [on] the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.

7 He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

8 Then the beastes go into the denne, and remaine in their places.

9 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

11 Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:

12 And it is turned about by his gouernment, that they may doe whatsoeuer he commandeth them vpon the whole worlde:

13 He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

14 Hearken vnto this, O Iob: stand and consider the wonderous workes of God.

15 Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

16 Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

17 How thy garments [are] warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south [wind]?

18 Hast thou with him spread out the sky, [which is] strong, [and] as a molten looking glass?

19 Teach us what we shall say unto him; [for] we cannot order [our speech] by reason of darkness.

20 Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.

21 And now [men] see not the bright light which [is] in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.

22 Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God [is] terrible majesty.

23 [Touching] the Almighty, we cannot find him out: [he is] excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.

24 Let men therefore feare him: for he will not regarde any that are wise in their owne conceit.
