 5. The most wise, righteous, and gracious God oftentimes leaves, for a season, His own children to various temptations and to the corruption of their own hearts:

  • To chastise them for their former sins or to reveal to them the hidden strength of corruption and deceitfulness of their hearts
  • That they may be humbleda
  • To raise them to a more close and constant dependence for their support upon Himself
  • To make them more watchful against all future occasions of sin

6. Sometimes God, as a righteous judge, blinds and hardens wicked and ungodly men as punishment for former sins.a He withholds His grace from them, by which they might have been enlightened in their understandings and worked upon in their hearts.b What is more, sometimes He also withdraws the gifts that they hadc and exposes them to such objects that their corruption makes occasions of sin.d Besides all this, He gives them over to their own lusts, the temptations of the world, and the power of Satan.e Thus it happens  that they harden themselves, even under those means that God uses for the softening of others.f

Job 38–41  (ESV)                    Back

38:1Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: 2“Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? 3Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me. 4“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. 5Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? 6On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, 7when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8“Or who shut in the sea with doors when it burst out from the womb, 9when I made clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, 10and prescribed limits for it and set bars and doors, 11and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed’? 12“Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place, 13that it might take hold of the skirts of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it? 14It is changed like clay under the seal, and its features stand out like a garment. 15From the wicked their light is withheld, and their uplifted arm is broken. 16“Have you entered into the springs of the sea, or walked in the recesses of the deep? 17Have the gates of death been revealed to you, or have you seen the gates of deep darkness? 18Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth? Declare, if you know all this. 19“Where is the way to the dwelling of light, and where is the place of darkness, 20that you may take it to its territory and that you may discern the paths to its home? 21You know, for you were born then, and the number of your days is great! 22“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, 23which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war? 24What is the way to the place where the light is distributed, or where the east wind is scattered upon the earth? 25“Who has cleft a channel for the torrents of rain and a way for the thunderbolt, 26to bring rain on a land where no man is, on the desert in which there is no man, 27to satisfy the waste and desolate land, and to make the ground sprout with grass? 28“Has the rain a father, or who has begotten the drops of dew? 29From whose womb did the ice come forth, and who has given birth to the frost of heaven? 30The waters become hard like stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. 31“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades or loose the cords of Orion? 32Can you lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season, or can you guide the Bear with its children? 33Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule on the earth? 34“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that a flood of waters may cover you? 35Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go and say to you, ‘Here we are’? 36Who has put wisdom in the inward parts or given understanding to the mind? 37Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can tilt the waterskins of the heavens, 38when the dust runs into a mass and the clods stick fast together? 39“Can you hunt the prey for the lion, or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, 40when they crouch in their dens or lie in wait in their thicket? 41Who provides for the raven its prey, when its young ones cry to God for help, and wander about for lack of food? 39:1“Do you know when the mountain goats give birth? Do you observe the calving of the does? 2Can you number the months that they fulfill, and do you know the time when they give birth, 3when they crouch, bring forth their offspring, and are delivered of their young? 4Their young ones become strong; they grow up in the open; they go out and do not return to them. 5“Who has let the wild donkey go free? Who has loosed the bonds of the swift donkey, 6to whom I have given the arid plain for his home and the salt land for his dwelling place? 7He scorns the tumult of the city; he hears not the shouts of the driver. 8He ranges the mountains as his pasture, and he searches after every green thing. 9“Is the wild ox willing to serve you? Will he spend the night at your manger? 10Can you bind him in the furrow with ropes, or will he harrow the valleys after you? 11Will you depend on him because his strength is great, and will you leave to him your labor? 12Do you have faith in him that he will return your grain and gather it to your threshing floor? 13“The wings of the ostrich wave proudly, but are they the pinions and plumage of love? 14For she leaves her eggs to the earth and lets them be warmed on the ground, 15forgetting that a foot may crush them and that the wild beast may trample them. 16She deals cruelly with her young, as if they were not hers; though her labor be in vain, yet she has no fear, 17because God has made her forget wisdom and given her no share in understanding. 18When she rouses herself to flee, she laughs at the horse and his rider. 19“Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? 20Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrifying. 21He paws in the valley and exults in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons. 22He laughs at fear and is not dismayed; he does not turn back from the sword. 23Upon him rattle the quiver, the flashing spear, and the javelin. 24With fierceness and rage he swallows the ground; he cannot stand still at the sound of the trumpet. 25When the trumpet sounds, he says ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle from afar, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting. 26“Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars and spreads his wings toward the south? 27Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up and makes his nest on high? 28On the rock he dwells and makes his home, on the rocky crag and stronghold. 29From there he spies out the prey; his eyes behold it from far away. 30His young ones suck up blood, and where the slain are, there is he.” 40:1And the Lord said to Job: 2“Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it.” 3Then Job answered the Lord and said: 4“Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth. 5I have spoken once, and I will not answer; twice, but I will proceed no further.” 6Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: 7“Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me. 8Will you even put me in the wrong? Will you condemn me that you may be in the right? 9Have you an arm like God, and can you thunder with a voice like his? 10“Adorn yourself with majesty and dignity; clothe yourself with glory and splendor. 11Pour out the overflowings of your anger, and look on everyone who is proud and abase him. 12Look on everyone who is proud and bring him low and tread down the wicked where they stand. 13Hide them all in the dust together; bind their faces in the world below. 14Then will I also acknowledge to you that your own right hand can save you. 15“Behold, Behemoth, which I made as I made you; he eats grass like an ox. 16Behold, his strength in his loins, and his power in the muscles of his belly. 17He makes his tail stiff like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together. 18His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like bars of iron. 19“He is the first of the works of God; let him who made him bring near his sword! 20For the mountains yield food for him where all the wild beasts play. 21Under the lotus plants he lies, in the shelter of the reeds and in the marsh. 22For his shade the lotus trees cover him; the willows of the brook surround him. 23Behold, if the river is turbulent he is not frightened; he is confident though Jordan rushes against his mouth. 24Can one take him by his eyes, or pierce his nose with a snare? 41:1“Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook or press down his tongue with a cord? 2Can you put a rope in his nose or pierce his jaw with a hook? 3Will he make many pleas to you? Will he speak to you soft words? 4Will he make a covenant with you to take him for your servant forever? 5Will you play with him as with a bird, or will you put him on a leash for your girls? 6Will traders bargain over him? Will they divide him up among the merchants? 7Can you fill his skin with harpoons or his head with fishing spears? 8Lay your hands on him; remember the battle—you will not do it again! 9Behold, the hope of a man is false; he is laid low even at the sight of him. 10No one is so fierce that he dares to stir him up. Who then is he who can stand before me? 11Who has first given to me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is mine. 12“I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, or his mighty strength, or his goodly frame. 13Who can strip off his outer garment? Who would come near him with a bridle? 14Who can open the doors of his face? Around his teeth is terror. 15His back is made of rows of shields, shut up closely as with a seal. 16One is so near to another that no air can come between them. 17They are joined one to another; they clasp each other and cannot be separated. 18His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the dawn. 19Out of his mouth go flaming torches; sparks of fire leap forth. 20Out of his nostrils comes forth smoke, as from a boiling pot and burning rushes. 21His breath kindles coals, and a flame comes forth from his mouth. 22In his neck abides strength, and terror dances before him. 23The folds of his flesh stick together, firmly cast on him and immovable. 24His heart is hard as a stone, hard as the lower millstone. 25When he raises himself up the mighty are afraid; at the crashing they are beside themselves. 26Though the sword reaches him, it does not avail, nor the spear, the dart, or the javelin. 27He counts iron as straw, and bronze as rotten wood. 28The arrow cannot make him flee; for him sling stones are turned to stubble. 29Clubs are counted as stubble; he laughs at the rattle of javelins. 30His underparts are like sharp potsherds; he spreads himself like a threshing sledge on the mire. 31He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a pot of ointment. 32Behind him he leaves a shining wake; one would think the deep to be white-haired. 33On earth there is not his like, a creature without fear. 34He sees everything that is high; he is king over all the sons of pride.”

 

 

Job 38-41  (KJ3)                    Back

1¶ And Jehovah answered Job out of the tempest and said:

2 Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?

3 Now gird up your loins like a man, for I will question you; and you make Me know.

4¶ Where were you when I founded the earth? Declare if you know understanding.

5 Who has set its dimensions, for you know? Or who has stretched a line on it?

6 On what were its bases sunk? Or who cast its cornerstone,

7 when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it burst out; it came forth from the womb?

9 When I made the clouds for its clothing, and darkness its navel-band;

10 and I broke My limit on it and set bars and doors;

11 and I said, You shall come to here, but do not add; and here your proud waves shall be set?

12¶ Did you order the morning from your days, and caused the dawn to know its place,

13 that it might take hold of the ends of the earth; that the wicked ones might be shaken out of it?

14 It is turned like clay under a seal; and they stand out like a garment.

15 And their light is withheld from the wicked ones, and the high arm shall be broken.

16 Have you gone to the springs of the sea; or have you walked in searching of the deep?

17 Have death’s gates been opened to you; or have you seen the gates of the shadow of death?

18 Have you understood the breadth of the earth? Declare, if you know it all!

19 Where is this, the way light dwells; and where is the place of darkness,

20 that you should take it to its boundary, and that you should perceive the paths to its house?

21 You know, for then you were born, and the number of your days is great.

22 Have you entered into the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,

23 which I have reserved for the time of distress, for the day of battle and war?

24 Where is this, the way the light is distributed; or the east wind is scattered on the earth?

25¶ Who has split a channel for the flood; or a way for the thunderclaps,

26 to make it rain on the earth where no man is, a wilderness and no man in it;

27 to satisfy the waste and desolation, and to cause the source of grass to sprout?

28 Is there a father for the rain? Or who has given birth to the drops of dew?

29 From whose womb comes forth the ice; and the frost of the heavens, who fathered it;

30 the waters hidden like stone, and the face of the deep is captured?

31 Can you bind the bands of the Pleiades, or loosen the cords of Orion?

32 Can you bring out the constellations in their season;.or can you guide the Bear with its sons?

33 Do you know the limits of the heavens; can you establish their rule on the earth?

34 Can you lift your voice to the clouds, so that floods of water may cover you?

35 Can you send lightnings, that they may go and say to you, Here we are?

36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts, or who has given understanding to the mind?

37 Who can by wisdom number the clouds or who can lay down the jars of the heavens,

38 when the dust is poured out at the casting, and the clods cling fast together?

39 Do you hunt the prey for the lion, or fill the living desire of the young lions,

40 when they crouch in dens, and sit in the cover of their hiding place?

41 Who provides its food for the raven, when its young ones cry to God and wander about without food?

1¶ Do you know the time of the bearing of the goats of the rock? Do you observe the travailing of deer?

2 Can you tell the months they fulfill; or do you know the time for their bearing,

3 when they crouch and bring forth; they send out their pangs?

4 Their sons become strong; they multiply with grain; they go forth and do not return to them.

5 Who has sent out the wild ass free, or who has loosened the bands of the wild ass?

6 To whom I have assigned the desert for his home, and the salt land for his dwellings?

7 He laughs at the roar of the city; he does not hear the driver’s shouts;

8 he seeks out mountains for his pasture, and he searches after every green thing.

9 Will the wild ox consent to be your servant, or spend the night by your feed-trough?

10 Can you tie the wild ox in the furrow with his rope? Or will he harrow the valleys for you?

11 Will you trust him because his strength is great; or will you leave your labor to him?

12 Or will you have faith in him, that he will return your seed, and gather it to your threshing-floor?

13¶ The wing of the ostriches flap joyously, though not like the stork’s pinions or feathers.

14 For she leaves her eggs to the earth, and lets them warm on the dust;

15 and forgets that a foot may crush it, or the beast of the field may trample it;

16 she treats her young roughly, as if not hers; for her labor is vanity without fear;

17 because God has made her forget wisdom; and He has not given to her a share in understanding.

18 At the time she lifts up on high, she laughs at the horse and its rider.

19¶ Have you given the horse its strength: have you clothed its neck with a mane?

20 Can you make him leap like a locust? The majesty of his snorting is terrifying.

21 He paws in the valley and he rejoices in his strength; he goes out to meet the weapons;

22 he mocks at fear and is not terrified; and he does not turn back from the sword.

23 The quiver rattles against him, the flashing spear and the javelin.

24 He swallows the ground with quivering and trembling, and he does not stand still for the sound of the rams’ horn.

25 When the rams’ horn sounds, he says, Aha! And he smells the battle from a distance, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

26¶ Does the hawk soar from your understanding? Will he spread his wings toward the south?

27 Or does the eagle mount up at your mouth, and make his nest on high?

28 He lives and stays on the rock, on the crag of the rock and the stronghold.

29 From there he seeks food; his eyes see afar off.

30 And his young brood sucks up blood; and where the pierced ones are, there he is.

1¶ And Jehovah answered Job and said:

2 Shall a reprover contend with the Almighty? He who reproves God, let him answer it.

3 Then Job answered Jehovah and said:

4 Behold, I am vile! What shall I answer You? I will put my hand to my mouth.

5 Once I have spoken, but I will not answer; yea, twice, but I will go no further.

6¶ And Jehovah answered Job out of the tempest and said:

7 Now gird up your loins like a man. I will question you; and you make Me to know.

8 Yea, will you also nullify My judgment; will you condemn Me so that you may be justified?

9 And have you an arm like God; or can you thunder with a voice like His?

10 Adorn yourself with majesty now, and be exalted, and clothe yourself with glory and honor;

11 pour forth the outbursts of your anger; yea, look on everyone who is a proud one, and bring him down low;

12 look on every proud one, and humble him, and trample the wicked ones in their place;

13 hide them in the dust together; bind their faces in darkness.

14 And I also will confess to you that your right hand can save you.

15¶ Now behold Behemoth, which I made along with you; he eats grass like an ox;

16 see, now, his strength is in his loins, and his force in the muscles of his belly;

17 he hangs his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together;

18 his bones are like tubes of bronze; his bones like bars of iron;

19 he is the first in the ways of God; His Maker brings near his sword.

20 For the mountains yield food for him, and all the beasts of the field play there.

21 He lies under the lotus, in the hidingplace of the reed and the marsh;

22 the lotus trees cover him in its shadow; the willows of the torrent circle him.

23 Behold, a flood oppresses, even if Jordan burst forth against his mouth.

24 Shall any take him before his eyes, or pierce his nose with snares?

1¶ Can you draw out the leviathan with a hook, or hold down his tongue with a cord?

2 Can you put a reed rope into his nose, or pierce his jaw with a thorn?

3 Will he multiply supplications to you; or will he speak soft words to you?

4 Will he cut a covenant with you; will you take him for a slave forever?

5 Will you play with him as with a bird; or will you tie him up for your maidens?

6 Shall your partners bargain over him; shall they divide him among the merchants?

7 Can you fill his skin with barbs, or his head with fishing spears?

8 Put your palm on him; remember the battle; you will not do it again!

9 Behold, his hope has been made false; will one not be cast down at the sight of him?

10 None is so fierce as to dare to stir him up; and who is able to stand before Me?

11¶ Who has gone before Me that I should repay? All under the heavens, it is to Me!

12 I will not keep silent as to his limbs, or the matter of his powers, or the grace of his frame.

13 Who can take off the face of his covering; who can enter within his double bridle?

14 Who can pry open the doors of his face? Terror is round about his teeth.

15 The rows of shields are his pride, shut up with a tight seal;

16 each one is close to another that no air can come between them;

17 they are joined to one another; they clasp each other, and they cannot be separated.

18 His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are as the eyelids of the dawn.

19 Out of his mouth go burning torches; sparks of fire fly out.

20 Smoke goes out of his nostrils like a pot breathed out and reeds.

21 His breath kindles coals and the flame goes out from his mouth.

22 Strength abides in his neck and before him leaps dismay.

23 The hanging parts of flesh cleave together firmly on him; he cannot be moved.

24 His heart is firm as a stone, even firm as a piece of a lower millstone.

25 The mighty ones are afraid from his arising; from the crashings they miss the way.

26 The sword overtakes him, but will not hold firm, the spear, the dart, or the javelin.

27 He counts iron as straw, bronze as rotten wood.

28 A son of a bow cannot make him flee; slingstones are turned to stubble by him;

29 clubs are counted as stubble; he laughs at the shaking of a javelin.

30 Points of potsherds are under him; he spreads sharp marks on the mire.

31 He makes the deep boil like a pot; he makes the sea like a pot of ointment;

32 he makes a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be grayheaded.

33 There is nothing like him on earth, one made without fear.

34 He beholds all high things; he is king over all the sons of pride.

 

 

Job 38–41  (NASB95)                    Back

38:1Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, 2“Who is this that darkens counsel By words without knowledge? 3“Now gird up your loins like a man, And I will ask you, and you instruct Me! 4“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, 5Who set its measurements? Since you know. Or who stretched the line on it? 6“On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone, 7When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8“Or who enclosed the sea with doors When, bursting forth, it went out from the womb; 9When I made a cloud its garment And thick darkness its swaddling band, 10And I placed boundaries on it And set a bolt and doors, 11And I said, ‘Thus far you shall come, but no farther; And here shall your proud waves stop’? 12“Have you ever in your life commanded the morning, And caused the dawn to know its place, 13That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And the wicked be shaken out of it? 14“It is changed like clay under the seal; And they stand forth like a garment. 15“From the wicked their light is withheld, And the uplifted arm is broken. 16“Have you entered into the springs of the sea Or walked in the recesses of the deep? 17“Have the gates of death been revealed to you, Or have you seen the gates of deep darkness? 18“Have you understood the expanse of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this. 19“Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, 20That you may take it to its territory And that you may discern the paths to its home? 21“You know, for you were born then, And the number of your days is great! 22“Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, 23Which I have reserved for the time of distress, For the day of war and battle? 24“Where is the way that the light is divided, Or the east wind scattered on the earth? 25“Who has cleft a channel for the flood, Or a way for the thunderbolt, 26To bring rain on a land without people, On a desert without a man in it, 27To satisfy the waste and desolate land And to make the seeds of grass to sprout? 28“Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew? 29“From whose womb has come the ice? And the frost of heaven, who has given it birth? 30“Water becomes hard like stone, And the surface of the deep is imprisoned. 31“Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades, Or loose the cords of Orion? 32“Can you lead forth a constellation in its season, And guide the Bear with her satellites? 33“Do you know the ordinances of the heavens, Or fix their rule over the earth? 34“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, So that an abundance of water will cover you? 35“Can you send forth lightnings that they may go And say to you, ‘Here we are’? 36“Who has put wisdom in the innermost being Or given understanding to the mind? 37“Who can count the clouds by wisdom, Or tip the water jars of the heavens, 38When the dust hardens into a mass And the clods stick together? 39“Can you hunt the prey for the lion, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, 40When they crouch in their dens And lie in wait in their lair? 41“Who prepares for the raven its nourishment When its young cry to God And wander about without food? 39:1“Do you know the time the mountain goats give birth? Do you observe the calving of the deer? 2“Can you count the months they fulfill, Or do you know the time they give birth? 3“They kneel down, they bring forth their young, They get rid of their labor pains. 4“Their offspring become strong, they grow up in the open field; They leave and do not return to them. 5“Who sent out the wild donkey free? And who loosed the bonds of the swift donkey, 6To whom I gave the wilderness for a home And the salt land for his dwelling place? 7“He scorns the tumult of the city, The shoutings of the driver he does not hear. 8“He explores the mountains for his pasture And searches after every green thing. 9“Will the wild ox consent to serve you, Or will he spend the night at your manger? 10“Can you bind the wild ox in a furrow with ropes, Or will he harrow the valleys after you? 11“Will you trust him because his strength is great And leave your labor to him? 12“Will you have faith in him that he will return your grain And gather it from your threshing floor? 13“The ostriches’ wings flap joyously With the pinion and plumage of love, 14For she abandons her eggs to the earth And warms them in the dust, 15And she forgets that a foot may crush them, Or that a wild beast may trample them. 16“She treats her young cruelly, as if they were not hers; Though her labor be in vain, she is unconcerned; 17Because God has made her forget wisdom, And has not given her a share of understanding. 18“When she lifts herself on high, She laughs at the horse and his rider. 19“Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? 20“Do you make him leap like the locust? His majestic snorting is terrible. 21“He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He goes out to meet the weapons. 22“He laughs at fear and is not dismayed; And he does not turn back from the sword. 23“The quiver rattles against him, The flashing spear and javelin. 24“With shaking and rage he races over the ground, And he does not stand still at the voice of the trumpet. 25“As often as the trumpet sounds he says, ‘Aha!’ And he scents the battle from afar, And the thunder of the captains and the war cry. 26“Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars, Stretching his wings toward the south? 27“Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up And makes his nest on high? 28“On the cliff he dwells and lodges, Upon the rocky crag, an inaccessible place. 29“From there he spies out food; His eyes see it from afar. 30“His young ones also suck up blood; And where the slain are, there is he.” 40:1Then the Lord said to Job, 2“Will the faultfinder contend with the Almighty? Let him who reproves God answer it.” 3Then Job answered the Lord and said, 4“Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You? I lay my hand on my mouth. 5“Once I have spoken, and I will not answer; Even twice, and I will add nothing more.” 6Then the Lord answered Job out of the storm and said, 7“Now gird up your loins like a man; I will ask you, and you instruct Me. 8“Will you really annul My judgment? Will you condemn Me that you may be justified? 9“Or do you have an arm like God, And can you thunder with a voice like His? 10“Adorn yourself with eminence and dignity, And clothe yourself with honor and majesty. 11“Pour out the overflowings of your anger, And look on everyone who is proud, and make him low. 12“Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him, And tread down the wicked where they stand. 13“Hide them in the dust together; Bind them in the hidden place. 14“Then I will also confess to you, That your own right hand can save you. 15“Behold now, Behemoth, which I made as well as you; He eats grass like an ox. 16“Behold now, his strength in his loins And his power in the muscles of his belly. 17“He bends his tail like a cedar; The sinews of his thighs are knit together. 18“His bones are tubes of bronze; His limbs are like bars of iron. 19“He is the first of the ways of God; Let his maker bring near his sword. 20“Surely the mountains bring him food, And all the beasts of the field play there. 21“Under the lotus plants he lies down, In the covert of the reeds and the marsh. 22“The lotus plants cover him with shade; The willows of the brook surround him. 23“If a river rages, he is not alarmed; He is confident, though the Jordan rushes to his mouth. 24“Can anyone capture him when he is on watch, With barbs can anyone pierce his nose? 41:1“Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord? 2“Can you put a rope in his nose Or pierce his jaw with a hook? 3“Will he make many supplications to you, Or will he speak to you soft words? 4“Will he make a covenant with you? Will you take him for a servant forever? 5“Will you play with him as with a bird, Or will you bind him for your maidens? 6“Will the traders bargain over him? Will they divide him among the merchants? 7“Can you fill his skin with harpoons, Or his head with fishing spears? 8“Lay your hand on him; Remember the battle; you will not do it again! 9“Behold, your expectation is false; Will you be laid low even at the sight of him? 10“No one is so fierce that he dares to arouse him; Who then is he that can stand before Me? 11“Who has given to Me that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is Mine. 12“I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, Or his mighty strength, or his orderly frame. 13“Who can strip off his outer armor? Who can come within his double mail? 14“Who can open the doors of his face? Around his teeth there is terror. 15“His strong scales are his pride, Shut up as with a tight seal. 16“One is so near to another That no air can come between them. 17“They are joined one to another; They clasp each other and cannot be separated. 18“His sneezes flash forth light, And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19“Out of his mouth go burning torches; Sparks of fire leap forth. 20“Out of his nostrils smoke goes forth As from a boiling pot and burning rushes. 21“His breath kindles coals, And a flame goes forth from his mouth. 22“In his neck lodges strength, And dismay leaps before him. 23“The folds of his flesh are joined together, Firm on him and immovable. 24“His heart is as hard as a stone, Even as hard as a lower millstone. 25“When he raises himself up, the mighty fear; Because of the crashing they are bewildered. 26“The sword that reaches him cannot avail, Nor the spear, the dart or the javelin. 27“He regards iron as straw, Bronze as rotten wood. 28“The arrow cannot make him flee; Slingstones are turned into stubble for him. 29“Clubs are regarded as stubble; He laughs at the rattling of the javelin. 30“His underparts are like sharp potsherds; He spreads out like a threshing sledge on the mire. 31“He makes the depths boil like a pot; He makes the sea like a jar of ointment. 32“Behind him he makes a wake to shine; One would think the deep to be gray-haired. 33“Nothing on earth is like him, One made without fear. 34“He looks on everything that is high; He is king over all the sons of pride.”

 

 

Job 38-41  (WEB)                    Back

1           Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind,

2“Who is this who darkens counsel

3 Brace yourself like a man,

4“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?

5 Who determined its measures, if you know?

6 Whereupon were its foundations fastened?

7 when the morning stars sang together,

8“Or who shut up the sea with doors,

9 when I made clouds its garment,

10 marked out for it my bound,

11 and said, ‘Here you may come, but no further.

12“Have you commanded the morning in your days,

13 that it might take hold of the ends of the earth,

14 It is changed as clay under the seal,

15 From the wicked, their light is withheld.

16“Have you entered into the springs of the sea?

17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you?

18 Have you comprehended the earth in its width?

19“What is the way to the dwelling of light?

20 that you should take it to its bound,

21 Surely you know, for you were born then,

22 Have you entered the treasuries of the snow,

23 which I have reserved against the time of trouble,

24 By what way is the lightning distributed,

25 Who has cut a channel for the flood water,

26 To cause it to rain on a land where no man is;

27 to satisfy the waste and desolate ground,

28 Does the rain have a father?

29 Out of whose womb came the ice?

30 The waters become hard like stone,

31“Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades,

32 Can you lead the constellations out in their season?

33 Do you know the laws of the heavens?

34“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,

35 Can you send out lightnings, that they may go?

36 Who has put wisdom in the inward parts?

37 Who can count the clouds by wisdom?

38 when the dust runs into a mass,

39“Can you hunt the prey for the lioness,

40 when they crouch in their dens,

41 Who provides for the raven his prey,

1“Do you know the time when the mountain goats give birth?

2 Can you count the months that they fulfill?

3 They bow themselves, they bear their young.

4 Their young ones become strong.

5“Who has set the wild donkey free?

6 Whose home I have made the wilderness,

7 He scorns the tumult of the city,

8 The range of the mountains is his pasture,

9“Will the wild ox be content to serve you?

10 Can you hold the wild ox in the furrow with his harness?

11 Will you trust him, because his strength is great?

12 Will you confide in him, that he will bring home your seed,

13“The wings of the ostrich wave proudly;

14 For she leaves her eggs on the earth,

15 and forgets that the foot may crush them,

16 She deals harshly with her young ones, as if they were not hers.

17 because God has deprived her of wisdom,

18 When she lifts up herself on high,

19“Have you given the horse might?

20 Have you made him to leap as a locust?

21 He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength.

22 He mocks at fear, and is not dismayed,

23 The quiver rattles against him,

24 He eats up the ground with fierceness and rage,

25 As often as the trumpet sounds he snorts, ‘Aha!’

26“Is it by your wisdom that the hawk soars,

27 Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up,

28 On the cliff he dwells, and makes his home,

29 From there he spies out the prey.

30 His young ones also suck up blood.

1           Moreover Yahweh answered Job,

2“Shall he who argues contend with the Almighty?

3           Then Job answered Yahweh,

4“Behold, I am of small account. What shall I answer you?

5 I have spoken once, and I will not answer;

6           Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind,

7“Now brace yourself like a man.

8 Will you even annul my judgment?

9 Or do you have an arm like God?

10“Now deck yourself with excellency and dignity.

11 Pour out the fury of your anger.

12 Look at everyone who is proud, and humble him.

13 Hide them in the dust together.

14 Then I will also admit to you

15“See now, behemoth, which I made as well as you.

16 Look now, his strength is in his thighs.

17 He moves his tail like a cedar.

18 His bones are like tubes of bronze.

19 He is the chief of the ways of God.

20 Surely the mountains produce food for him,

21 He lies under the lotus trees,

22 The lotuses cover him with their shade.

23 Behold, if a river overflows, he doesn’t tremble.

24 Shall any take him when he is on the watch,

1“Can you draw out Leviathan* with a fish hook,

2 Can you put a rope into his nose,

3 Will he make many petitions to you,

4 Will he make a covenant with you,

5 Will you play with him as with a bird?

6 Will traders barter for him?

7 Can you fill his skin with barbed irons,

8 Lay your hand on him.

9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain.

10 None is so fierce that he dare stir him up.

11 Who has first given to me, that I should repay him?

12“I will not keep silence concerning his limbs,

13 Who can strip off his outer garment?

14 Who can open the doors of his face?

15 Strong scales are his pride,

16 One is so near to another,

17 They are joined to one another.

18 His sneezing flashes out light.

19 Out of his mouth go burning torches.

20 Out of his nostrils a smoke goes,

21 His breath kindles coals.

22 There is strength in his neck.

23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together.

24 His heart is as firm as a stone,

25 When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid.

26 If one attacks him with the sword, it can’t prevail;

27 He counts iron as straw;

28 The arrow can’t make him flee.

29 Clubs are counted as stubble.

30 His undersides are like sharp potsherds,

31 He makes the deep to boil like a pot.

32 He makes a path shine after him.

33 On earth there is not his equal,

1A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. 2But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had nearly slipped. 3For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4For they have no pangs until death; their bodies are fat and sleek. 5They are not in trouble as others are; they are not stricken like the rest of mankind. 6Therefore pride is their necklace; violence covers them as a garment. 7Their eyes swell out through fatness; their hearts overflow with follies. 8They scoff and speak with malice; loftily they threaten oppression. 9They set their mouths against the heavens, and their tongue struts through the earth. 10Therefore his people turn back to them, and find no fault in them. 11And they say, “How can God know? Is there knowledge in the Most High?” 12Behold, these are the wicked; always at ease, they increase in riches. 13All in vain have I kept my heart clean and washed my hands in innocence. 14For all the day long I have been stricken and rebuked every morning. 15If I had said, “I will speak thus,” I would have betrayed the generation of your children. 16But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task, 17until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I discerned their end. 18Truly you set them in slippery places; you make them fall to ruin. 19How they are destroyed in a moment, swept away utterly by terrors! 20Like a dream when one awakes, O Lord, when you rouse yourself, you despise them as phantoms. 21When my soul was embittered, when I was pricked in heart, 22I was brutish and ignorant; I was like a beast toward you. 23Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. 24You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. 25Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. 26My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 27For behold, those who are far from you shall perish; you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you. 28But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.

2 And as for me, my feet had almost turned aside, my steps nearly made to slip.

3 For I was jealous of those boasting; I saw the peace of the wicked ones.

4 For there are no pangs to their death; but their belly is fat.

5 They are not in the misery of mortal man; and with men they are not touched.

6 So pride enchains them; violence covers them like a garment.

7 Their eyes go out with fat; they have passed the imaginations of the heart.

8 They scoff and speak in evil; from on high they speak oppression.

9 They set their mouth in the heavens; and their tongues walk through the earth.

10 Because of this His people shall return here; and waters of a full cup shall be drained by them.

11 And they say, How does God know? And, Is there knowledge in the Most High?

12 Behold! These are the wicked ones who are always at ease; they increase their riches.

13 Surely I have purified my heart in vain; and I have washed my palms in innocence.

14 For all the day I was stricken; and my chastening is at the mornings.

15¶ If I say, This is the way I will speak; behold, I would deceive a generation of Your sons.

16 And I thought to know this; it was a vexation in my eyes,

17 until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I understood their end.

18 Surely, You will set them in slippery places; You will make them fall into ruin.

19 How they have become desolation in a moment, consumed with terrors!

20 Like a dream awakening from dreaming, O Lord, in awakening You will despise their image.

21¶ For my heart was being leavened, and I was pierced in my reins.

22 And I was brutish and did not know; I was like animals with You.

23 Yet I was continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand.

24 You shall guide me by Your counsel; and afterward You will take me to glory.

25 Whom is to me in Heaven? And I do not desire any on earth besides You.

26 My flesh and my heart waste away; God is the rock of my heart and my portion forever.

27 For, behold, those who are far from You shall perish; You have cut off all who go fornicating away from You.

28 And I, it is good for me to draw near to God; I have made my refuge in the Lord Jehovah, to declare all Your works.

 

 

Psalm 73  (NASB95)                    Back

1A Psalm of Asaph. Surely God is good to Israel, To those who are pure in heart! 2But as for me, my feet came close to stumbling, My steps had almost slipped. 3For I was envious of the arrogant As I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4For there are no pains in their death, And their body is fat. 5They are not in trouble as other men, Nor are they plagued like mankind. 6Therefore pride is their necklace; The garment of violence covers them. 7Their eye bulges from fatness; The imaginations of their heart run riot. 8They mock and wickedly speak of oppression; They speak from on high. 9They have set their mouth against the heavens, And their tongue parades through the earth. 10Therefore his people return to this place, And waters of abundance are drunk by them. 11They say, “How does God know? And is there knowledge with the Most High?” 12Behold, these are the wicked; And always at ease, they have increased in wealth. 13Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure And washed my hands in innocence; 14For I have been stricken all day long And chastened every morning. 15If I had said, “I will speak thus,” Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of Your children. 16When I pondered to understand this, It was troublesome in my sight 17Until I came into the sanctuary of God; Then I perceived their end. 18Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction. 19How they are destroyed in a moment! They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors! 20Like a dream when one awakes, O Lord, when aroused, You will despise their form. 21When my heart was embittered And I was pierced within, 22Then I was senseless and ignorant; I was like a beast before You. 23Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand. 24With Your counsel You will guide me, And afterward receive me to glory. 25Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. 26My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 27For, behold, those who are far from You will perish; You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You. 28But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.

1 A Psalm by Asaph.

2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone.

3 For I was envious of the arrogant,

4 For there are no struggles in their death,

5 They are free from burdens of men,

6 Therefore pride is like a chain around their neck.

7 Their eyes bulge with fat.

8 They scoff and speak with malice.

9 They have set their mouth in the heavens.

10 Therefore their people return to them,

11 They say, “How does God know?

12 Behold, these are the wicked.

13 Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain,

14 For all day long I have been plagued,

15 If I had said, “I will speak thus”;

16 When I tried to understand this,

17 Until I entered God’s sanctuary,

18 Surely you set them in slippery places.

19 How they are suddenly destroyed!

20 As a dream when one wakes up,

21 For my soul was grieved.

22 I was so senseless and ignorant.

23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you.

24 You will guide me with your counsel,

25 Whom do I have in heaven?

26 My flesh and my heart fails,

27 For, behold, those who are far from you shall perish.

Selah 4You hold my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 5I consider the days of old, the years long ago. 6I said, “Let me remember my song in the night; let me meditate in my heart.” Then my spirit made a diligent search: 7“Will the Lord spurn forever, and never again be favorable? 8Has his steadfast love forever ceased? Are his promises at an end for all time? 9Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah 10Then I said, “I will appeal to this, to the years of the right hand of the Most High.” 11I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. 12I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds.

8 Is His kindness gone forever? Has His Word failed to generation and generation?

9 Has God forgotten to be gracious; has He in anger shut up His tender mercies? Selah.

10 And I said, This is my sickness, the years of the right hand of the Most High;
