JOB 40:1 And Jehovah doth answer Job, and saith: --

JOB 40:2 Is the striver with the Mighty instructed? The reprover of God, let him answer it.

JOB 40:3 And Job answereth Jehovah, and saith: --

JOB 40:4 Lo, I have been vile, What do I return to Thee? My hand I have placed on my mouth.

JOB 40:5 Once I have spoken, and I answer not, And twice, and I add not.

JOB 40:6 And Jehovah answereth Job out of the whirlwind, and saith: --

JOB 40:7 Gird, I pray thee, as a man, thy loins, I ask thee, and cause thou Me to know.

JOB 40:8 Dost thou also make void My judgment? Dost thou condemn Me, That thou mayest be righteous?

JOB 40:9 And an arm like God hast thou? And with a voice like Him dost thou thunder?

JOB 40:10 Put on, I pray thee, excellency and loftiness, Yea, honour and beauty put on.

JOB 40:11 Scatter abroad the wrath of thine anger, And see every proud one, and make him low.

JOB 40:12 See every proud one -- humble him, And tread down the wicked in their place.

JOB 40:13 Hide them in the dust together, Their faces bind in secret.

JOB 40:14 And even I -- I do praise thee, For thy right hand giveth salvation to thee.

JOB 40:15 Lo, I pray thee, Behemoth, that I made with thee: Grass as an ox he eateth.

JOB 40:16 Lo, I pray thee, his power `is' in his loins, And his strength in the muscles of his belly.

JOB 40:17 He doth bend his tail as a cedar, The sinews of his thighs are wrapped together,

JOB 40:18 His bones `are' tubes of brass, His bones `are' as a bar of iron.

JOB 40:19 He `is' a beginning of the ways of God, His Maker bringeth nigh his sword;

JOB 40:20 For food do mountains bear for him, And all the beasts of the field play there.

JOB 40:21 Under shades he lieth down, In a secret place of reed and mire.

JOB 40:22 Cover him do shades, `with' their shadow, Cover him do willows of the brook.

JOB 40:23 Lo, a flood oppresseth -- he doth not haste, He is confident though Jordan Doth come forth unto his mouth.

JOB 40:24 Before his eyes doth `one' take him, With snares doth `one' pierce the nose?
