Job 38:1-7,12-13; 40:1-5

The Lord Answers Job

38Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind:
2 ‘Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Gird up your loins like a man,
   I will question you, and you shall declare to me.


4 ‘Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
   Tell me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
   Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 On what were its bases sunk,
   or who laid its cornerstone
7 when the morning stars sang together
   and all the heavenly beings* shouted for joy?


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?

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.’
