Job 40 RHE/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (39-31) And the Lord went on, and said to Job: 1 The LORD said to Job:
2 (39-32) Shall he that contendeth with God be so easily silenced? surely he that reproveth God, ought to answer him. 2 "Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!"
3 (39-33) Then Job answered the Lord, and said: 3 Then Job answered the LORD:
4 (39-34) What can I answer, who hath spoken inconsiderately? I will lay my hand upon my mouth. 4 "I am unworthy--how can I reply to you? I put my hand over my mouth.
5 (39-35) One thing I have spoken, which I wish I had not said: and another, to which I will add no more. 5 I spoke once, but I have no answer-- twice, but I will say no more."
6 (40-1) And the Lord answering Job out of the whirlwind, said: 6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm:
7 (40-2) Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and do thou tell me. 7 "Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.
8 (40-3) Wilt thou make void my judgment: and condemn me, that thou mayst be justified? 8 "Would you discredit my justice? Would you condemn me to justify yourself ?
9 (40-4) And hast thou an arm like God, and canst thou thunder with a voice like him? 9 Do you have an arm like God's, and can your voice thunder like his?
10 (40-5) Clothe thyself with beauty, and set thyself up on high, and be glorious, and put on goodly garments. 10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor, and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.
11 (40-6) Scatter the proud in thy indignation, and behold every arrogant man, and humble him. 11 Unleash the fury of your wrath, look at every proud man and bring him low,
12 (40-7) Look on all that are proud, and confound them, and crush the wicked in their place, 12 look at every proud man and humble him, crush the wicked where they stand.
13 (40-8) Hide them in the dust together, and plunge their faces into the pit. 13 Bury them all in the dust together; shroud their faces in the grave.
14 (40-9) Then I will confess that thy right hand is able to save thee. 14 Then I myself will admit to you that your own right hand can save you.
15 (40-10) Behold behemoth whom I made with thee, he eateth grass like an ox. 15 "Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox.
16 (40-11) His strength is in his loins, and his force in the navel of his belly. 16 What strength he has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly!
17 (40-12) He setteth up his tail like a cedar, the sinews of his testicles are wrapped together. 17 His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are close-knit.
18 (40-13) His bones are like pipes of brass, his gristle like plates of iron. 18 His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like rods of iron.
19 (40-14) He is the beginning of the ways of God, who made him, he will apply his sword. 19 He ranks first among the works of God, yet his Maker can approach him with his sword.
20 (40-15) To him the mountains bring forth grass: there all the beasts of the field shall play. 20 The hills bring him their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby.
21 (40-16) He sleepeth under the shadow, in the covert of the reed, and in moist places. 21 Under the lotus plants he lies, hidden among the reeds in the marsh.
22 (40-17) The shades cover his shadow, the willows of the brook shall compass him about. 22 The lotuses conceal him in their shadow; the poplars by the stream surround him.
23 (40-18) Behold, he will drink up a river, and not wonder: and he trusteth that the Jordan may run into his mouth. 23 When the river rages, he is not alarmed; he is secure, though the Jordan should surge against his mouth.
24 (40-19) In his eyes as with a hook he shall take him, and bore through his nostrils with stakes. 24 Can anyone capture him by the eyes, or trap him and pierce his nose?
