1At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of its place. 2Hearken ye unto the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth. 3He sendeth it forth under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth. 4After it a voice roareth; he thundereth with the voice of his majesty: and he stayeth them not when his voice is heard. 5God thundereth marvelously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. 6For he saith to the snow, Fall thou on the earth; likewise to the shower of rain, and to the showers of his mighty rain. 7He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men whom he hath made may know it. 8Then the beasts go into coverts, and remain in their dens. 9Out of the chamber of the southcometh the storm: and cold out of the north. 10By the breath of God ice is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11Yea, he ladeth the thick cloud with moisture; he spreadeth abroad the cloud of his lightning: 12And it is turned round about by his guidance, that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the habitable world. 13Whether it be for correction, or for his land, or for mercy, that he cause it to come. 14Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. 15Dost thou know how God layeth his chargeupon them, and causeth the lightning of his cloud to shine? 16Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge? 17How thy garments are warm, when the earth is still by reason of the south wind? 18Canst thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong as a molten mirror? 19Teach us what we shall say unto him; forwe cannot order our speechby reason of darkness. 20Shall it be told him that I would speak? or should a man wish that he were swallowed up? 21And now men see not the light which is bright in the skies: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them. 22Out of the north cometh golden splendour: God hath upon him terrible majesty. 23Touchingthe Almighty, we can not find him out; he is excellent in power: and in judgment and plenteous justice he will not afflict. 24Men do therefore fear him: he regardeth not any that are wise of heart.
