Job, Chapter 26

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?"
