Job 40

40 Moreover the Lord aanswered Job, and said,

Shall he that bcontendeth with the Almighty instruct him?

He that reproveth God, let him answer it.

Then Job answered the Lord, and said,

Behold, cI am vile; what shall I answer thee?

dI will lay mine hand upon my mouth.

eOnce have I spoken; but I will not answer:

Yea, etwice; but I will proceed no further.

Then answered the Lord unto Job out of fthe whirlwind, and said,

gGird up thy loins now like a man:

hI will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.

iWilt thou also disannul my judgment?

Wilt thou condemn me, kthat thou mayest be righteous?

Hast thou an arm like God?

Or canst thou lthunder with a voice like him?

10  Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency;

And marray thyself with glory and beauty.

11  Cast abroad nthe rage of thy wrath:

And obehold every one that is proud, and abase him.

12  oLook on every one that is proud, and obring him low;

And tread down the wicked pin their place.

13  qHide them qrin the dust together;

And bind their faces in secret.

14  Then will I also confess unto thee

That sthine own right hand can save thee.

15  Behold now ||behemoth,

Which I made with thee;

He eateth tgrass as an ox.

16  Lo now, his strength is in his loins,

And his force is in the navel of his belly.

17  ||He moveth his tail like a cedar:

The sinews of his stones are uwrapped together.

18  His bones are as strong pieces of brass;

His bones are like bars of iron.

19  He is the wchief of the xways of God:

He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.

20  Surely the mountains bring him forth food,

Where all the beasts of the field play.

21  He lieth under the shady trees,

In the covert of the reed, and yfens.

22  The shady trees cover him with their shadow;

The zwillows of the brook compass him about.

23  Behold, he drinketh up a river, and ahasteth not:

He trusteth that he can bdraw up Jordan into his mouth.

24  ||He taketh it with his eyes:

His nose pierceth through snares.
