Job Chapter Twenty Six

1: But Job answered and said,

2: How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

3: How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?

4: To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?

5: Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

6: Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

7: :He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

8: He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

9: He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

10: He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

11: The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

12: He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

13: By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

14: Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
