By words without knowledge?

Gird up now thy loins like a man;
For I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Declare, if thou hast understanding.

And set bars and doors,

Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days began,
And caused the dayspring to know its place;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:13 -
That it might take hold of the ends of the earth,
And the wicked be shaken out of it?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:14 -
It is changed as clay under the seal;
And all things stand forth as a garment:

And the high arm is broken.

Doubtless, thou knowest, for thou wast then born,
And the number of thy days is great!

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:22 -
Hast thou entered the treasuries of the snow,
Or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:23 -
Which I have reserved against the time of trouble,
Against the day of battle and war?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:24 -
By what way is the light parted,
Or the east wind scattered upon the earth?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:25 -
Who hath cleft a channel for the waterflood,
Or the way for the lightning of the thunder;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:26 -
To cause it to rain on a land where no man is;
On the wilderness, wherein there is no man;

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:27 -
To satisfy the waste and desolate ground,
And to cause the tender grass to spring forth?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:28 -
Hath the rain a father?
Or who hath begotten the drops of dew?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:37 -
Who can number the clouds by wisdom?
Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:38 -
When the dust runneth into a mass,
And the clods cleave fast together?

Canst thou hunt the prey for the lioness,
Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions,

When they couch in their dens,
And abide in the covert to lie in wait?

Who provideth for the raven his prey,
When his young ones cry unto God,
And wander for lack of food?
