Job 26:1-14

26  And Job proceeded to answer and say:   “O how much help you have been to one without power!O [how] you have saved an arm that is without strength!+   How much you have advised one that is without wisdom,+And you have made practical wisdom itself known to the multitude!   To whom have you told words,And whose breath* has come forth from you?   Those impotent in death* keep tremblingBeneath the waters and those residing in them.+   Sheʹol is naked in front of him,+And [the place of] destruction* has no covering.   He is stretching out the north over the empty place,+Hanging the earth upon nothing;   Wrapping up the waters in his clouds,+So that the cloud mass is not split under them;   Enclosing the face of the throne,*Spreading out* over it his cloud.+ 10  He has described a circle upon the face of the waters,+To where light ends in darkness. 11  The very pillars of heaven shake,And they are amazed because of his rebuke. 12  By his power he has stirred up the sea,+And by his understanding he has broken the stormer*+ to pieces.+ 13  By his wind* he has polished up heaven itself,+His hand has pierced the gliding serpent.+ 14  Look! These are the fringes of his ways,+And what a whisper of a matter has been heard of him!But of his mighty thunder who can show an understanding?”+
