26:1 Then Job made answer and said,

26:2 How have you given help to him who has no power! how have you been the salvation of the arm which has no strength!

26:3 How have you given teaching to him who has no wisdom, and fully made clear true knowledge!

26:4 To whom have your words been said? and whose spirit came out from you?

26:5 The shades in the underworld are shaking; the waters and those living in them.

26:6 The underworld is uncovered before him, and Destruction has no veil.

26:7 By his hand the north is stretched out in space, and the earth is hanging on nothing.

26:8 By him the waters are shut up in his thick clouds, and the cloud does not give way under them.

26:9 By him the face of his high seat is veiled, and his cloud stretched out over it.

26:10 By him a circle is marked out on the face of the waters, to the limits of the light and the dark.

26:11 The pillars of heaven are shaking, and are overcome by his sharp words.

26:12 By his power the sea was made quiet; and by his wisdom Rahab was wounded.

26:13 By his wind the heavens become bright: by his hand the quickly moving snake was cut through.

26:14 See, these are only the outskirts of his ways; and how small is that which comes to our ears about him! But the thunder of his acts of power is outside all knowledge.
