NASB — Job 37 — KJV

Elihu Says God Is Back of the Storm

  1 “At this also my heart trembles,
  And leaps from its place.
  2 “Listen closely to the athunder of His voice,
  And the rumbling that goes out from His mouth.
  3 “Under the whole heaven He lets it loose,
  And His Ilightning to the aends of the earth.
  4 “After it, a voice roars;
  He thunders with His majestic voice,
  And He does not restrain Ithe lightnings when His voice is heard.
  5 “God athunders with His voice wondrously,
  Doing bgreat things which we cannot comprehend.
  6 “For to athe snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth,’
  And to the Ibdownpour and the rain, ‘Be strong.’
  7 “He aseals the hand of every man,
  That ball men may know His work.
  8 “Then the beast goes into its alair
  And remains in its Iden.
  9 “Out of the Iasouth comes the storm,
  And out of the IInorth the cold.
  10 “From the breath of God aice is made,
  And the expanse of the waters is frozen.
  11 “Also with moisture He aloads the thick cloud;
  He bdisperses cthe cloud of His Ilightning.
  12 “It changes direction, turning around by His guidance,
  That Iit may do whatever He acommands IIit
  On the bface of the inhabited earth.
  13 “Whether for Iacorrection, or for bHis world,
  Or for clovingkindness, He causes it to IIhappen.

God is to be feared because of his great works.

1 ¶ At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place. 2 Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound [that] goeth out of his mouth. 3 He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth. 4 After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard. 5 God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. 6 For he saith to the snow, Be thou [on] the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength. 7 He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. 8 Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places. 9 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. 10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11 Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: 12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. 13 He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. 14 Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

His wisdom is unsearchable in them.

15 Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine? 16 Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge? 17 How thy garments [are] warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south [wind]? 18 Hast thou with him spread out the sky, [which is] strong, [and] as a molten looking glass? 19 Teach us what we shall say unto him; [for] we cannot order [our speech] by reason of darkness. 20 Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up. 21 And now [men] see not the bright light which [is] in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them. 22 Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God [is] terrible majesty. 23 [Touching] the Almighty, we cannot find him out: [he is] excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict. 24 Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any [that are] wise of heart.
