Job - Chapter 26

Then Job replied:   1

"How you have helped the powerless! How you have saved the arm that is feeble!   2

What advice you have offered to one without wisdom! And what great insight you have displayed!   3

Who has helped you utter these words? And whose spirit spoke from your mouth?   4

"The dead are in deep anguish, those beneath the waters and all that live in them.   5

Death is naked before God; Destruction lies uncovered.   6

He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.   7

He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight.   8

He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it.   9

He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness.   10

The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke.   11

By his power he churned up the sea; by his wisdom he cut Rahab to pieces.   12

By his breath the skies became fair; his hand pierced the gliding serpent.   13

And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?"   14
