Job 26


Job 26


Job Replies: God's Majesty Is Unsearchable

[1] Then Job answered and said:

[2] “How you have helped him who has no power!
How you have saved the arm that has no strength!
[3] How you have counseled him who has no wisdom,
and plentifully declared sound knowledge!
[4] With whose help have you uttered words,
and whose breath has come out from you?
[5] The dead tremble
under the waters and their inhabitants.
[6] Sheol is naked before God,
and Abaddon has no covering.
[7] He stretches out the north over the void
and hangs the earth on nothing.
[8] He binds up the waters in his thick clouds,
and the cloud is not split open under them.
[9] He covers the face of the full moon
and spreads over it his cloud.
[10] He has inscribed a circle on the face of the waters
at the boundary between light and darkness.
[11] The pillars of heaven tremble
and are astounded at his rebuke.
[12] By his power he stilled the sea;
by his understanding he shattered Rahab.
[13] By his wind the heavens were made fair;
his hand pierced the fleeing serpent.
[14] Behold, 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?” (ESV)
