"Can you fathom1 the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
They are higher2 than the heavens3--what can you do? They are deeper than the depths of the grave4--what can you know?5
Their measure6 is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.7
"If he comes along and confines you in prison and convenes a court, who can oppose him?8
Surely he recognizes deceitful men; and when he sees evil, does he not take note?9
But a witless man can no more become wise than a wild donkey's colt10 can be born a man.11
