You have not started any reading plans.
38 Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind.n He said:
with ignorant words?o
when I questionp you, you will inform me.
4 Where were you when I establishedq the earth?
Tell me, if you haveA understanding.
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
Or who laid its cornerstone
and all the sons of Goda shouted for joy?
when it burst from the womb,
10 when I determined its boundariesC
and put its bars and doors in place,
your proud waves stop here”?
or assigned the dawn its place,
and shake the wicked out of it?
its hills stand out like the folds of a garment.
15 LightD is withheld from the wicked,
and the arm raised in violence is broken.
or walked in the depths of the oceans?
17 Have the gatesc of death been revealed to you?
Have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
Tell me, if you know all this.
Do you know where darkness lives,
Are you familiar with the paths to its home?
21 Don’t you know? You were already born;d
you have lived so long!E
Or have you seen the storehouses of hail,e
for the day of warfare and battle?f
24 What road leads to the place where light is dispersed?F
Where is the source of the east wind that spreads across the earth?
or clears the way for lightning,
on a desert with no human life,G
and cause the grass to sprout?g
Who fathered the drops of dew?h
Who gave birth to the frost of heaven
30 when water becomes as hard as stone,H
and the surface of the watery depths is frozen?i
or loosen the belt of Orion?
32 Can you bring out the constellationsI in their season
33 Do you know the lawsk of heaven?
Can you impose itsK authority on earth?
34 Can you commandL the clouds
so that a flood of water covers you?l
35 Can you send out lightningm bolts, and they go?
Do they report to you, “Here we are”?
or gave the mind understanding?
Or who can tilt the water jars of heaven
and the clods of dirt stick together?
or satisfy the appetite of young lionsa
and lie in wait within their lairs?
41 Who provides the raven’s foodb
when its young cry out to God
and wander about for lack of food?
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
