The Lord Challenges Job

Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind:

“Who is this that questions my wisdom

with such ignorant words?

Brace yourself like a man,

because I have some questions for you,

and you must answer them.

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

and who laid its cornerstone

as the morning stars sang together

and all the angels* shouted for joy?
