Job 40 KJV

1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said ,
2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.
3 Then Job answered the LORD, and said ,
4 Behold, I am vile ; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.
5 Once have I spoken ; but I will not answer : yea, twice; but I will proceed no further .
6 Then answered the LORD unto 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 also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous ?
9 Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?
10 Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.
11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold 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 in their place.
13 Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret .
14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.
15 Behold now behemoth,a which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.
