bHe does great things which we cannot comprehend.
6 For cHe says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’;
Likewise to the 2gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength.
8 The beasts fgo into dens,
And remain in their lairs.
And cold from the scattering winds of the north.
10 gBy the breath of God ice is given,
And the broad waters are frozen.
He scatters His 3bright clouds.
That they may hdo whatever He commands them
On the face of 4the whole earth.
13 iHe causes it to come,
Whether for 5correction,
Or jfor His land,
Or kfor mercy.
Stand still and lconsider the wondrous works of God.
15 Do you know when God 6dispatches them,
And causes the light of His cloud to shine?
16 mDo you know how the clouds are balanced,
Those wondrous works of nHim who is perfect in knowledge?
When He quiets the earth by the south wind?
Strong as a cast metal mirror?
For we can prepare nothing because of the darkness.
If a man were to speak, surely he would be swallowed up.
When the wind has passed and cleared them.
With God is awesome majesty.
23 As for the Almighty, qwe cannot find Him;
rHe is excellent in power,
In judgment and abundant justice;
He does not oppress.
24 Therefore men sfear Him;
He shows no partiality to any who are twise of heart.”
