Job

1"At this also my heart trembles,
and leaps out of its place.
2Hearken to the thunder of his voice
and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
3Under the whole heaven he lets it go,
and his lightning to the corners of the earth.
4After it his voice roars;
he thunders with his majestic voice
and he does not restrain the lightnings when his voice is heard.
5God thunders wondrously with his voice;
he does great things which we cannot comprehend.
6For to the snow he says, 'Fall on the earth';
and to the shower and the rain, 'Be strong.'
7He seals up the hand of every man,
that all men may know his work.
8Then the beasts go into their lairs,
and remain in their dens.
9From its chamber comes the whirlwind,
and cold from the scattering winds.
10By the breath of God ice is given,
and the broad waters are frozen fast.
11He loads the thick cloud with moisture;
the clouds scatter his lightning.
12They turn round and round by his guidance,
to accomplish all that he commands them on the face of the habitable world.
13Whether for correction, or for his land,
or for love, he causes it to happen.

14"Hear this, O Job;
stop and consider the wondrous works of God.
15Do you know how God lays his command upon them,
and causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?
16Do you know the balancings of the clouds,
the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge,
17you whose garments are hot
when the earth is still because of the south wind?
18Can you, like him, spread out the skies,
hard as a molten mirror?
19Teach us what we shall say to him;
we cannot draw up our case because of darkness.
20Shall it be told him that I would speak?
Did a man ever wish that he would be swallowed up?
21"And now men cannot look on the light
when it is bright in the skies,
when the wind has passed and cleared them.
22Out of the north comes golden splendour;
God is clothed with terrible majesty.
23The Almighty - we cannot find him;
he is great in power and justice,
and abundant righteousness he will not violate.
24Therefore men fear him;
he does not regard any who are wise in their own conceit."

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
