| The Book of Job.|
The Harvard Classics. 190914.
| || THEN Job answered and said,|
| ||How hast thou helped him that is without power!|
How hast thou saved the arm that hath no strength!
| ||How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom,|
And plentifully declared sound knowledge!
| ||To whom hast thou uttered words?|
And whose spirit 1 came forth from thee?
| ||They 2 that are deceased tremble|
Beneath the waters and the inhabitants thereof.
| ||Sheol is naked before God, 3|
And Abaddon 4 hath no covering.
| ||He stretcheth out the north over empty space,|
And hangeth the earth upon 5 nothing.
| ||He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds;|
And the cloud is not rent under them.
| ||He incloseth the face of his throne,|
And spreadeth his cloud upon it.
| ||He hath described a boundary upon the face of the waters,|
Unto the confines of light and darkness.
| ||The pillars of heaven tremble|
And are astonished at his rebuke.
| ||He stirreth 6 up the sea with his power,|
And by his understanding he smiteth through Rahab.
| ||By his Spirit the heavens are garnished; 7|
His hand hath pierced the swift 8 serpent.
| ||Lo, these are but the outskirts of his ways:|
And how 9 small a whisper do 10 we hear of him!
But the thunder of his power 11 who can understand?
