My heart pounds at this

and leaps from my chest.[fn]

Just listen to his thunderous voice

and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.

his lightning to the ends of the earth.

serve as his sign to all mankind,

so that all men may know his work.

You whose clothes get hot

when the south wind brings calm to the land,

as hard as a cast metal mirror?

we cannot prepare our case because of our darkness.

Now no one can even look at the sun

after a wind has swept through and cleared the sky.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 37:24 -

therefore, men fear him.

He does not look favorably on any who are wise in heart.
