Job 26

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42
26:1 Then Job answered,

26:2 "How have you helped him who is without power! How have you saved the arm that has no strength!

26:3 How have you counseled him who has no wisdom, And plentifully declared sound knowledge!

26:4 To whom have you uttered words? Whose spirit came forth from you?

26:5 "Those who are deceased tremble, Those beneath the waters and all that live in them.

26:6 Sheol{Sheol is the lower world or the grave.} is naked before God, And Abaddon{Abaddon means Destroyer.} has no covering.

26:7 He stretches out the north over empty space, And hangs the earth on nothing.

26:8 He binds up the waters in his thick clouds, And the cloud is not burst under them.

26:9 He encloses the face of his throne, And spreads his cloud on it.

26:10 He has described a boundary on the surface of the waters, And to the confines of light and darkness.

26:11 The pillars of heaven tremble And are astonished at his rebuke.

26:12 He stirs up the sea with his power, And by his understanding he strikes through Rahab.

26:13 By his Spirit the heavens are garnished. His hand has pierced the swift serpent.

26:14 Behold, these are but the outskirts of his ways. How small a whisper do we hear of him! But the thunder of his power who can understand?"
