Chapter 40

JOB.40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said:
JOB.40:2 “Shall the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him? He who rebukes God, let him answer it.”
JOB.40:3 Then Job answered the LORD and said:
JOB.40:4 “Behold, I am vile; What shall I answer You? I lay my hand over my mouth.
JOB.40:5 Once I have spoken, but I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further.”
JOB.40:6 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
JOB.40:7 “Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me:
JOB.40:8 “Would you indeed annul My judgment? Would you condemn Me that you may be justified?
JOB.40:9 Have you an arm like God? Or can you thunder with a voice like His?
JOB.40:10 Then adorn yourself with majesty and splendor, and array yourself with glory and beauty.
JOB.40:11 Disperse the rage of your wrath; Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him.
JOB.40:12 Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low; Tread down the wicked in their place.
JOB.40:13 Hide them in the dust together, Bind their faces in hidden darkness.
JOB.40:14 Then I will also confess to you That your own right hand can save you.
JOB.40:15 “Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you; He eats grass like an ox.
JOB.40:16 See now, his strength is in his hips, And his power is in his stomach muscles.
JOB.40:17 He moves his tail like a cedar; The sinews of his thighs are tightly knit.
JOB.40:18 His bones are like beams of bronze, His ribs like bars of iron.
JOB.40:19 He is the first of the ways of God; Only He who made him can bring near His sword.
JOB.40:20 Surely the mountains yield food for him, And all the beasts of the field play there.
JOB.40:21 He lies under the lotus trees, In a covert of reeds and marsh.
JOB.40:22 The lotus trees cover him with their shade; The willows by the brook surround him.
JOB.40:23 Indeed the river may rage, Yet he is not disturbed; He is confident, though the Jordan gushes into his mouth,
JOB.40:24 Though he takes it in his eyes, Or one pierces his nose with a snare.
