The LORD Speaks

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:1 -

Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind. He said:

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:2 -

Who is this who obscures my counsel

with ignorant words?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:3 -

Get ready to answer me like a man;

when I question you, you will inform me.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:4 -

Where were you when I established the earth?

Tell me, if you have[fn] understanding.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:5 -

Who fixed its dimensions? Certainly you know!

Who stretched a measuring line across it?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:6 -

What supports its foundations?

Or who laid its cornerstone

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:7 -

while the morning stars sang together

and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:8 -

Who enclosed the sea behind doors

when it burst from the womb,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:9 -

when I made the clouds its garment

and total darkness its blanket,[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:10 -

when I determined its boundaries[fn]

and put its bars and doors in place,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:11 -

when I declared: “You may come this far, but no farther;

your proud waves stop here”?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:12 -

Have you ever in your life commanded the morning

or assigned the dawn its place,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:13 -

so it may seize the edges of the earth

and shake the wicked out of it?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:14 -

The earth is changed as clay is by a seal;

its hills stand out like the folds of a garment.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:15 -

Light[fn] is withheld from the wicked,

and the arm raised in violence is broken.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:16 -

Have you traveled to the sources of the sea

or walked in the depths of the oceans?

Have the gates of death been revealed to you?

Have you seen the gates of deep darkness?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:18 -

Have you comprehended the extent of the earth?

Tell me, if you know all this.

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:19 -

Where is the road to the home of light?

Do you know where darkness lives,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:20 -

so you can lead it back to its border?

Are you familiar with the paths to its home?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:21 -

Don’t you know? You were already born;

you have lived so long![fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:22 -

Have you entered the place where the snow is stored?

Or have you seen the storehouses of hail,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:23 -

which I hold in reserve for times of trouble,

for the day of warfare and battle?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:24 -

What road leads to the place where light is dispersed?[fn]

Where is the source of the east wind that spreads across the earth?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:25 -

Who cuts a channel for the flooding rain

or clears the way for lightning,

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:26 -

to bring rain on an uninhabited land,

on a desert with no human life,[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:27 -

to satisfy the parched wasteland

and cause the grass to sprout?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:28 -

Does the rain have a father?

Who fathered the drops of dew?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:29 -

Whose womb did the ice come from?

Who gave birth to the frost of heaven

Can you bring out the constellations[fn] in their season

and lead the Bear[fn] and her cubs?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:33 -

Do you know the laws of heaven?

Can you impose its[fn] authority on earth?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:34 -

Can you command[fn] the clouds

so that a flood of water covers you?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:35 -

Can you send out lightning bolts, and they go?

Do they report to you: “Here we are”?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:36 -

Who put wisdom in the heart[fn]

or gave the mind understanding?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:37 -

Who has the wisdom to number the clouds?

Or who can tilt the water jars of heaven

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:38 -

when the dust hardens like cast metal

and the clods of dirt stick together?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:39 -

Can you hunt prey for a lioness

or satisfy the appetite of young lions

when they crouch in their dens

and lie in wait within their lairs?

Unchecked Copy BoxJob 38:41 -

Who provides the raven’s food

when its young cry out to God

and wander about for lack of food?

CSB Footnotes
Lit know
Lit swaddling clothes
Lit I broke my statute on it
Lit Their light
Lit born; the number of your days is great
Or where lightning is distributed
Lit no man in it
Lit water hides itself as the stone
Or Mazzaroth ; Hb obscure
Or lead Aldebaran
Or God’s
Lit lift up your voice to
Or the inner self ; Ps 51:6
