|Then Job answered:||Job. Jb.26.1-4|
|"How you have helped him who has no power! |
How you have saved the arm that has no strength!
|How you have counseled him who has no wisdom, |
and plentifully declared sound knowledge!
|With whose help have you uttered words, |
and whose spirit has come forth from you?
|The shades below tremble, |
the waters and their inhabitants.
|Sheol is naked before God, |
and Abaddon has no covering.
|He stretches out the north over the void, |
and hangs the earth upon nothing.
|He binds up the waters in his thick clouds, |
and the cloud is not rent under them.
|He covers the face of the moon, |
and spreads over it his cloud.
|He has described a circle upon the face of the waters |
at the boundary between light and darkness.
|The pillars of heaven tremble, |
and are astounded at his rebuke.
|By his power he stilled the sea; |
by his understanding he smote Rahab.
|By his wind the heavens were made fair; |
his hand pierced the fleeing serpent.
|Lo, these are but the outskirts of his ways; |
and how small a whisper do we hear of him!
But the thunder of his power who can understand?"
