Job 26 (asv)

Job 26 (asv)

26:1Then Job answered and said,

26:2How hast thou helped him that is without power!

How hast thou saved the arm that hath no strength!

26:3How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom,

And plentifully declared sound knowledge!

26:4To whom hast thou uttered words?

And whose spirit came forth from thee? \\ \\

26:5They that are deceased tremble

Beneath the waters and the inhabitants thereof.

26:6Sheol is naked before God,

And Abaddon hath no covering.

26:7He stretcheth out the north over empty space,

And hangeth the earth upon nothing.

26:8He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds;

And the cloud is not rent under them.

26:9He incloseth the face of his throne,

And spreadeth his cloud upon it.

26:10He hath described a boundary upon the face of the waters,

Unto the confines of light and darkness.

26:11The pillars of heaven tremble

And are astonished at his rebuke.

26:12He stirreth up the sea with his power,

And by his understanding he smiteth through Rahab.

26:13By his Spirit the heavens are garnished;

His hand hath pierced the swift serpent.

26:14Lo, these are but the outskirts of his ways:

And how small a whisper do we hear of him!

But the thunder of his power who can understand?
