Job 38:1,12-21,40:1-5

The Lord Answers Job

38Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind:
12 ‘Have you commanded the morning since your days began,
   and caused the dawn to know its place,
13 so that it might take hold of the skirts of the earth,
   and the wicked be shaken out of it?
14 It is changed like clay under the seal,
   and it is dyed* like a garment.
15 Light is withheld from the wicked,
   and their uplifted arm is broken.


16 ‘Have you entered into the springs of the sea,
   or walked in the recesses of the deep?
17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you,
   or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
18 Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth?
   Declare, if you know all this.


19 ‘Where is the way to the dwelling of light,
   and where is the place of darkness,
20 that you may take it to its territory
   and that you may discern the paths to its home?
21 Surely you know, for you were born then,
   and the number of your days is great!

40And the Lord said to Job:
2 ‘Shall a fault-finder contend with the Almighty?*
   Anyone who argues with God must respond.’

Job’s Response to God


3 Then Job answered the Lord:
4 ‘See, I am of small account; what shall I answer you?
   I lay my hand on my mouth.
5 I have spoken once, and I will not answer;
   twice, but will proceed no further.’
