CEB 1 The LORD continued to respond to Job: NIV 1 The LORD said to Job: CEB 2 Will the one who disputes with the Almighty correct him? God's instructor must answer him. NIV 2 "Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!" CEB 3 Job responded to the LORD: NIV 3 Then Job answered the LORD: CEB 4 Look, I'm of little worth. What can I answer you? I'll put my hand over my mouth. NIV 4 "I am unworthy--how can I reply to you? I put my hand over my mouth. CEB 5 I have spoken once, I won't answer; twice, I won't do it again. NIV 5 I spoke once, but I have no answer-- twice, but I will say no more." CEB 6 The LORD answered Job from the whirlwind: NIV 6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm: CEB 7 Prepare yourself like a man; I will interrogate you, and you will respond to me. NIV 7 "Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. CEB 8 Would you question my justice, deem me guilty so you can be innocent? NIV 8 "Would you discredit my justice? Would you condemn me to justify yourself ? CEB 9 Or do you have an arm like God; can you thunder with a voice like him? NIV 9 Do you have an arm like God's, and can your voice thunder like his? CEB 10 Adorn yourself with splendor and majesty; clothe yourself with honor and esteem. NIV 10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor, and clothe yourself in honor and majesty. CEB 11 Unleash your raging anger; look on all the proud and humble them. NIV 11 Unleash the fury of your wrath, look at every proud man and bring him low, CEB 12 Look on all the proud and debase them; trample the wicked in their place. NIV 12 look at every proud man and humble him, crush the wicked where they stand. CEB 13 Hide them together in the dust; bind their faces in a hidden place. NIV 13 Bury them all in the dust together; shroud their faces in the grave. CEB 14 Then I, even I, will praise you, for your strong hand has delivered you. NIV 14 Then I myself will admit to you that your own right hand can save you. CEB 15 Look at Behemoth, whom I made along with you; he eats grass like cattle. NIV 15 "Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox. CEB 16 Look, his strength is in his thighs, his power in stomach muscles. NIV 16 What strength he has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly! CEB 17 He stiffens his tail like a cedar; the tendons in his thighs are tightly woven. NIV 17 His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are close-knit. CEB 18 His bones are like bronze tubes, his limbs like iron bars. NIV 18 His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like rods of iron. CEB 19 He is the first of God's acts; only his maker can come near him with a sword. NIV 19 He ranks first among the works of God, yet his Maker can approach him with his sword. CEB 20 Indeed, the hills bring him tribute, places where all the wild animals play. NIV 20 The hills bring him their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby. CEB 21 He lies under the lotuses, under the cover of reed and marsh. NIV 21 Under the lotus plants he lies, hidden among the reeds in the marsh. CEB 22 The lotuses screen him with shade; poplars of the stream surround him. NIV 22 The lotuses conceal him in their shadow; the poplars by the stream surround him. CEB 23 If the river surges, he doesn't hurry; he is confident even though the Jordan gushes into his mouth. NIV 23 When the river rages, he is not alarmed; he is secure, though the Jordan should surge against his mouth. CEB 24 Can he be seized by his eyes? Can anyone pierce his nose by hooks? NIV 24 Can anyone capture him by the eyes, or trap him and pierce his nose?
