Chapter 37

37:1 At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of its place.

37:2 Hear attentively the noise of His voice, and the sound that goeth out of His mouth.

37:3 He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven, and His lightning unto the ends of the earth.

37:4 After it a voice roareth; He thundereth with the voice of His majesty; and He stayeth them not when His voice is heard.

37:5 God thundereth marvellously with His voice; great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend.

37:6 For He saith to the snow: 'Fall thou on the earth'; likewise to the shower of rain, and to the showers of His mighty rain.

37:7 He sealeth up the hand of every man, that all men whom He hath made may know it.

37:8 Then the beasts go into coverts, and remain in their dens.

37:9 Out of the Chamber cometh the storm; and cold out of the north.

37:10 By the breath of God ice is given, and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

37:11 Yea, He ladeth the thick cloud with moister, He spreadeth abroad the cloud of His lightning;

37:12 And they are turned round about by His guidance, that they may do whatsoever He commandeth them upon the face of the habitable world:

37:13 Whether it be for correction, or for His earth, or for mercy, that He cause it to come.

37:14 Hearken unto this, O Job; Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

37:15 Dost thou know how God enjoineth them, and causeth the lightning of His cloud to shine?

37:16 Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of Him who is perfect in knowledge?

37:17 Thou whose garments are warm, when the earth is still by reason of the south wind;

37:18 Canst thou with Him spread out the sky, which is strong as a molten mirror?

37:19 Teach us what we shall say unto Him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.

37:20 Shall it be told Him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?

37:21 And now men see not the light which is bright in the skies; but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.

37:22 Out of the north cometh golden splendour, about God is terrible majesty.

37:23 The Almighty, whom we cannot find out, is excellent in power, yet to judgment and plenteous justice He doeth no violence.

37:24 Men do therefore fear Him; He regardeth not any that are wise of heart.
