Job Rebukes Bildad

1 Then Job responded *,
2 "What a help you are to 1the weak! How you have saved the arm 2without strength!
3 "What counsel you have given to one without wisdom! What helpful insight you have abundantly provided!
4 "To whom have you uttered words? And whose spirit was expressed through you?

The Greatness of God

7 "He 6stretches out the north over empty space And hangs the earth on nothing.
8 "He 7wraps up the waters in His clouds, And the cloud does not burst under them.
9 "He 8obscures the face of the full moon And spreads His cloud over it.
10 "He has inscribed a 9circle on the surface of the waters At the 10boundary of light and darkness.
11 "The pillars of heaven tremble And are amazed at His rebuke.
12 "He 11quieted the sea with His power, And by His 12understanding He shattered 13Rahab.
13 "By His breath the 14heavens are cleared; His hand has pierced 15the fleeing serpent.
14 "Behold, these are the fringes of His ways; And how faint 16a word we hear of Him! But His mighty 17thunder, who can understand?"
