"Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades? Can you loose the cords of Orion?1
Can you bring forth the constellations2 in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs?3
Do you know the laws4 of the heavens?5 Can you set up [God's] dominion over the earth?
"Can you raise your voice to the clouds and cover yourself with a flood of water?6
Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?7 Do they report to you, 'Here we are'?
Who endowed the heart with wisdom8 or gave understanding9 to the mind ?
Who has the wisdom to count the clouds? Who can tip over the water jars10 of the heavens11
when the dust becomes hard12 and the clods of earth stick together?13
"Do you hunt the prey for the lioness and satisfy the hunger of the lions14
when they crouch in their dens15 or lie in wait in a thicket?16
Who provides food17 for the raven18 when its young cry out to God and wander about for lack of food?19
