Job 37 God’s Works and Wisdom

Job 37:1-24 God’s Works and Wisdom

Job 37:1-13
1 “At this also my heart trembles,
And leaps from its place.
2
Hear attentively the thunder of His voice,
And the rumbling that comes from His mouth.
3
He sends it forth under the whole heaven,
His [a]lightning to the ends of the earth.
4
After it a voice roars;
He thunders with His majestic voice,
And He does not restrain them when His voice is heard.
5
God thunders marvelously with His voice;
He does great things which we cannot comprehend.

6
For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’;
Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength.
7
He seals the hand of every man,
That all men may know His work.
8
The beasts go into dens,
And remain in their lairs.
9
From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind,
And cold from the scattering winds of the north.
10
By the breath of God ice is given,
And the broad waters are frozen.
11
Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds;
He scatters His bright clouds.
12
And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance,
That they may do whatever He commands them
On the face of the whole earth.
13
He causes it to come,
Whether for correction,
Or for His land,
Or for mercy.

Job 37:14-18
14
“Listen to this, O Job;
Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.

15
Do you know when God dispatches them,
And causes the light of His cloud to shine?
16
Do you know how the clouds are balanced,
Those wondrous works of Him who is perfect in knowledge?
17
Why are your garments hot,
When He quiets the earth by the south wind?
18
With Him, have you spread out the skies,
Strong as a cast metal mirror?
