Job, Chapter 37

37:1 "Yes, at this my heart trembles, and is moved out of its place.
37:2 Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, the sound that goes out of his mouth.
37:3 He sends it forth under the whole sky, and his lightning to the ends of the earth.
37:4 After it a voice roars. He thunders with the voice of his majesty. He doesn't hold back anything when his voice is heard.
37:5 God thunders marvelously with his voice. He does great things, which we can't comprehend.
37:6 For he says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth;' likewise to the shower of rain, and to the showers of his mighty rain.
37:7 He seals up the hand of every man, that all men whom he has made may know it.
37:8 Then the animals take cover, and remain in their dens.
37:9 Out of its room comes the storm, and cold out of the north.
37:10 By the breath of God, ice is given, and the breadth of the waters is frozen.
37:11 Yes, he loads the thick cloud with moisture. He spreads abroad the cloud of his lightning.
37:12 It is turned around by his guidance, that they may do whatever he commands them on the surface of the habitable world,
37:13 Whether it is for correction, or for his land, or for loving kindness, that he causes it to come.
37:14 "Listen to this, Job. Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
37:15 Do you know how God controls them, and causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?
37:16 Do you know the workings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge?
37:17 You whose clothing is warm, when the earth is still by reason of the south wind?
37:18 Can you, with him, spread out the sky, which is strong as a cast metal mirror?
37:19 Teach us what we shall tell him, for we can't make our case by reason of darkness.
37:20 Shall it be told him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?
37:21 Now men don't see the light which is bright in the skies, but the wind passes, and clears them.
37:22 Out of the north comes golden splendor. With God is awesome majesty.
37:23 We can't reach the Almighty. He is exalted in power. In justice and great righteousness, he will not oppress.
37:24 Therefore men revere him. He doesn't regard any who are wise of heart."
