37:1 Yea, at this my heart trembleth, And is moved out of its place.
37:2 Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, And the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
37:3 He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven, And his lightening unto the ends of the earth.
37:4 After it a voice roareth; He thundereth with the voice of his majesty; And he restraineth not `the lightnings' when his voice is heard.
37:5 God thundereth marvellously with his voice; Great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
37:6 For he saith to the snow, Fall thou on the earth; Likewise to the shower of rain, And to the showers of his mighty rain.
37:7 He sealeth up the hand of every man, That all men whom he hath made may know `it'.
37:8 Then the beasts go into coverts, And remain in their dens.
37:9 Out of the chamber `of the south' cometh the storm, And cold out of the north.
37:10 By the breath of God ice is given; And the breadth of the waters is straitened.
37:11 Yea, he ladeth the thick cloud with moisture; He spreadeth abroad the cloud of his lightning:
37:12 And it is turned round about by his guidance, That they may do whatsoever he commandeth them Upon the face of the habitable world,
37:13 Whether it be for correction, or for his land, Or for lovingkindness, that he cause it to come.
37:14 Hearken unto this, O Job: Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
37:15 Dost thou know how God layeth `his charge' upon them, And causeth the lightning of his cloud to shine?
37:16 Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, The wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge?
37:17 How thy garments are warm, When the earth is still by reason of the south `wind'?
37:18 Canst thou with him spread out the sky, Which is strong as a molten mirror?
37:19 Teach us what we shall say unto him; `For' we cannot set `our speech' in order by reason of darkness.
37:20 Shall it be told him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?
37:21 And now men see not the light which is bright in the skies; But the wind passeth, and cleareth them.
37:22 Out of the north cometh golden splendor: God hath upon him terrible majesty.
37:23 `Touching' the Almighty, we cannot find him out He is excellent in power; And in justice and plenteous righteousness he will not afflict.
37:24 Men do therefore fear him: He regardeth not any that are wise of heart.
