Chapter 26

Job Rebukes Bildad

1 Then Job 1responded,

2 “What a help you are to 1athe weak!

How you have saved the arm bwithout strength!

3 “What counsel you have given to one without wisdom!

What helpful insight you have abundantly 1provided!

4 “To whom have you uttered words?

And whose 1spirit was expressed through you?

The Greatness of God

5 “The 1adeparted spirits tremble

Under the waters and their inhabitants.

6 “Naked is 1aSheol before Him,

And 2bAbaddon has no covering.

7 “He astretches out the north over empty space

And hangs the earth on nothing.

8 “He awraps up the waters in His clouds,

And the cloud does not burst under them.

9 “He 1aobscures the face of the 2full moon

And spreads His cloud over it.

10 “He has inscribed a acircle on the surface of the waters

At the bboundary of light and darkness.

11 “The pillars of heaven tremble

And are amazed at His rebuke.

12 “He aquieted the sea with His power,

And by His bunderstanding He shattered cRahab.

13 “By His breath the aheavens are 1cleared;

His hand has pierced bthe fleeing serpent.

14 “Behold, these are the fringes of His ways;

And how faint aa word we hear of Him!

But His mighty bthunder, who can understand?”

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
