Job 26 NCV

1 Then Job answered:
2 "You are no help to the helpless! You have not aided the weak!
3 Your advice lacks wisdom! You have shown little understanding!
4 Who has helped you say these words? And where did you get these ideas?
5 "The spirits of the dead tremble, those who are beneath and in the waters.
6 Death is naked before God; destruction is uncovered before him.
7 God stretches the northern sky out over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing.
8 He wraps up the waters in his thick clouds, but the clouds do not break under their weight.
9 He covers the face of the moon, spreading his clouds over it.
10 He draws the horizon like a circle on the water at the place where light and darkness meet.
11 Heaven's foundations shake when he thunders at them.
12 With his power he quiets the sea; by his wisdom he destroys Rahab, the sea monster.
13 He breathes, and the sky clears. His hand stabs the fleeing snake.
14 And these are only a small part of God's works. We only hear a small whisper of him.
