The Lord Challenges Job

38Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind.H3068H6030H347H5591H559 2"Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words?H2821H6098H4405H1847 3Brace yourself like a man, because I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.H247H2504H1397H7592H3045 4"Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much.H375H3245H776H5046H3045H998 5Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line?H7760H4461H3045H5186H6957 6What supports its foundations, and who laid its cornerstoneH134H2883H3384H6438H68 7as the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?H1242H3556H7442H3162H1121H430H7321 8"Who kept the sea inside its boundaries as it burst from the womb,H5526H3220H1817H1518H3318H7358 9and as I clothed it with clouds and wrapped it in thick darkness?H7760H6051H3830H6205H2854 10For I locked it behind barred gates, limiting its shores.H7665H2706H7760H1280H1817 11I said, 'This far and no farther will you come. Here your proud waves must stop!'H559H5704H6311H935H3254H1347H1530H7896 12"Have you ever commanded the morning to appear and caused the dawn to rise in the east?H6680H1242H3117H7837H3045H4725 13Have you made daylight spread to the ends of the earth, to bring an end to the night's wickedness?H270H3671H776H7563H5287 14As the light approaches, the earth takes shape like clay pressed beneath a seal; it is robed in brilliant colors.H2015H2563H2368H3320H3830 15The light disturbs the wicked and stops the arm that is raised in violence.H7563H216H4513H7311H2220H7665 16"Have you explored the springs from which the seas come? Have you explored their depths?H935H5033H3220H1980H2714H8415 17Do you know where the gates of death are located? Have you seen the gates of utter gloom?H8179H4194H1540H7200H8179H6757 18Do you realize the extent of the earth? Tell me about it if you know!H995H7338H776H5046H3045 19"Where does light come from, and where does darkness go?H1870H216H7931H2822H4725 20Can you take each to its home? Do you know how to get there?H3947H1366H995H5410H1004 21But of course you know all this! For you were born before it was all created, and you are so very experienced!H3045H3205H4557H3117H7227 22"Have you visited the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of hail?H935H214H7950H7200H214H1259 23(I have reserved them as weapons for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war.)H2820H6256H6862H3117H7128H4421 24Where is the path to the source of light? Where is the home of the east wind?H335H1870H216H2505H6327H6921H776 25"Who created a channel for the torrents of rain? Who laid out the path for the lightning?H6385H8585H7858H1870H2385H6963 26Who makes the rain fall on barren land, in a desert where no one lives?H4305H776H376H4057H120 27Who sends rain to satisfy the parched ground and make the tender grass spring up?H7646H7722H4875H4161H1877H6779 28"Does the rain have a father? Who gives birth to the dew?H3426H4306H1H3205H96H2919 29Who is the mother of the ice? Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens?H990H3318H7140H3713H8064H3205 30For the water turns to ice as hard as rock, and the surface of the water freezes.H4325H2244H68H6440H8415H3920 31"Can you direct the movement of the stars—binding the cluster of the Pleiades or loosening the cords of Orion?H7194H4575H3598H6605H4189H3685 32Can you direct the sequence of the seasons or guide the Bear with her cubs across the heavens?H3318H4216H6256H5148H5906H1121 33Do you know the laws of the universe? Can you use them to regulate the earth?H3045H2708H8064H7760H4896H776 34"Can you shout to the clouds and make it rain?H7311H6963H5645H8229H4325H3680 35Can you make lightning appear and cause it to strike as you direct?H7971H1300H3212H559 36Who gives intuition to the heart and instinct to the mind?H7896H2451H2910H5414H998H7907 37Who is wise enough to count all the clouds? Who can tilt the water jars of heavenH5608H7834H2451H7901H5035H8064 38when the parched ground is dry and the soil has hardened into clods?H6083H3332H4165H7263H1692 39"Can you stalk prey for a lioness and satisfy the young lions' appetitesH6679H2964H3833H4390H2416H3715 40as they lie in their dens or crouch in the thicket?H7817H4585H3427H5521H3926H695 41Who provides food for the ravens when their young cry out to God and wander about in hunger?H3559H6158H6718H3206H7768H410H8582H1097H400
