|1||Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,|
Shall he that contendeth with the
Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.
|contendeth with the Almighty|
|3||Then Job answered the LORD, and said,|
|4||Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.|
Once have I spoken; but I
will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.
|6||Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said,|
|7||Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.|
|8||Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?|
|9||Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?|
|10||Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.|
|11||Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him.|
|12||Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.|
|13||Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret.|
Then will I also confess unto
thee that thine own right hand can save thee.
|15||Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.||behemoth|
|16||Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.|
|17||He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.||tail like a cedar|
|18||His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.|
|19||He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.||chief of the ways his sword|
|20||Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.|
|21||He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.|
|22||The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.|
|23||Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.|
He taketh it
with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.
