Chapter 40

1


 

  Moreover Jehovah answered Job, and said,  

 

 


2


 

  Shall he that cavilleth contend with the Almighty? He that argueth with God, let him answer it.  

 

 


3


 

  Then Job answered Jehovah, and said,  

 

 


4


 

  Behold, I am of small account; What shall I answer thee? I lay my hand upon my mouth.  

 

 


5


 

  Once have I spoken, and I will not answer; Yea, twice, but I will proceed no further.  

 

 


6


 

  Then Jehovah answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,  

 

 


7


 

  Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.  

 

 


8


 

  Wilt thou even annul my judgment? Wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be justified?  

 

 


9


 

  Or hast thou an arm like God? And canst thou thunder with a voice like him?  

 

 


10


 

  Deck thyself now with excellency and dignity; And array thyself with honor and majesty.  

 

 


11


 

  Pour forth the overflowings of thine anger; And look upon every one that is proud, and abase him.  

 

 


12


 

  Look on every one that is proud, [and] bring him low; And tread down the wicked where they stand.  

 

 


13


 

  Hide them in the dust together; Bind their faces in the hidden [place].  

 

 


14


 

  Then will I also confess of thee That thine own right hand can save thee.  

 

 


15


 

  Behold now, behemoth, which I made as well as thee; He eateth grass as an ox.  

 

 


16


 

  Lo now, his strength is in his loins, And his force is in the muscles of his belly.  

 

 


17


 

  He moveth his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together.  

 

 


18


 

  His bones are [as] tubes of brass; His limbs are like bars of iron.  

 

 


19


 

  He is the chief of the ways of God: He [only] that made him giveth him his sword.  

 

 


20


 

  Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the beasts of the field do play.  

 

 


21


 

  He lieth under the lotus-trees, In the covert of the reed, and the fen.  

 

 


22


 

  The lotus-trees cover him with their shade; The willows of the brook compass him about.  

 

 


23


 

  Behold, if a river overflow, he trembleth not; He is confident, though a Jordan swell even to his mouth.  

 

 


24


 

  Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare?
