Job 40

ASV 1 Moreover Jehovah answered Job, and said, NIV 1 The LORD said to Job: ASV 2 Shall he that cavilleth contend with the Almighty? He that argueth with God, let him answer it. NIV 2 "Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!" ASV 3 Then Job answered Jehovah, and said, NIV 3 Then Job answered the LORD: ASV 4 Behold, I am of small account; What shall I answer thee? I lay my hand upon my mouth. NIV 4 "I am unworthy--how can I reply to you? I put my hand over my mouth. ASV 5 Once have I spoken, and I will not answer; Yea, twice, but I will proceed no further. NIV 5 I spoke once, but I have no answer-- twice, but I will say no more." ASV 6 Then Jehovah answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, NIV 6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm: ASV 7 Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. NIV 7 "Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. ASV 8 Wilt thou even annul my judgment? Wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be justified? NIV 8 "Would you discredit my justice? Would you condemn me to justify yourself ? ASV 9 Or hast thou an arm like God? And canst thou thunder with a voice like him? NIV 9 Do you have an arm like God's, and can your voice thunder like his? ASV 10 Deck thyself now with excellency and dignity; And array thyself with honor and majesty. NIV 10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor, and clothe yourself in honor and majesty. ASV 11 Pour forth the overflowings of thine anger; And look upon every one that is proud, and abase him. NIV 11 Unleash the fury of your wrath, look at every proud man and bring him low, ASV 12 Look on every one that is proud, [and] bring him low; And tread down the wicked where they stand. NIV 12 look at every proud man and humble him, crush the wicked where they stand. ASV 13 Hide them in the dust together; Bind their faces in the hidden [place]. NIV 13 Bury them all in the dust together; shroud their faces in the grave. ASV 14 Then will I also confess of thee That thine own right hand can save thee. NIV 14 Then I myself will admit to you that your own right hand can save you. ASV 15 Behold now, behemoth, which I made as well as thee; He eateth grass as an ox. NIV 15 "Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox. ASV 16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, And his force is in the muscles of his belly. NIV 16 What strength he has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly! ASV 17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together. NIV 17 His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are close-knit. ASV 18 His bones are [as] tubes of brass; His limbs are like bars of iron. NIV 18 His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like rods of iron. ASV 19 He is the chief of the ways of God: He [only] that made him giveth him his sword. NIV 19 He ranks first among the works of God, yet his Maker can approach him with his sword. ASV 20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the beasts of the field do play. NIV 20 The hills bring him their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby. ASV 21 He lieth under the lotus-trees, In the covert of the reed, and the fen. NIV 21 Under the lotus plants he lies, hidden among the reeds in the marsh. ASV 22 The lotus-trees cover him with their shade; The willows of the brook compass him about. NIV 22 The lotuses conceal him in their shadow; the poplars by the stream surround him. ASV 23 Behold, if a river overflow, he trembleth not; He is confident, though a Jordan swell even to his mouth. NIV 23 When the river rages, he is not alarmed; he is secure, though the Jordan should surge against his mouth. ASV 24 Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare? NIV 24 Can anyone capture him by the eyes, or trap him and pierce his nose?
