View In My Bible
1 (39-31) And the Lord went on, and 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. 3 (39-33) Then Job answered the Lord, and said: 4 (39-34) What can I answer, who hath spoken inconsiderately? I will lay my hand upon 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. 6 (40-1) And the Lord answering Job out of the whirlwind, said: 7 (40-2) Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and do thou tell me. 8 (40-3) Wilt thou make void my judgment: and condemn me, that thou mayst be justified? 9 (40-4) And hast thou an arm like God, and canst thou thunder with a voice like him? 10 (40-5) Clothe thyself with beauty, and set thyself up on high, and be glorious, and put on goodly garments. 11 (40-6) Scatter the proud in thy indignation, and behold every arrogant man, and humble him. 12 (40-7) Look on all that are proud, and confound them, and crush the wicked in their place, 13 (40-8) Hide them in the dust together, and plunge their faces into the pit. 14 (40-9) Then I will confess that thy right hand is able to save thee. 15 (40-10) Behold behemoth whom I made with thee, he eateth grass like an ox. 16 (40-11) His strength is in his loins, and his force in the navel of his belly. 17 (40-12) He setteth up his tail like a cedar, the sinews of his testicles are wrapped together. 18 (40-13) His bones are like pipes of brass, his gristle like plates of iron. 19 (40-14) He is the beginning of the ways of God, who made him, he will apply his sword. 20 (40-15) To him the mountains bring forth grass: there all the beasts of the field shall play. 21 (40-16) He sleepeth under the shadow, in the covert of the reed, and in moist places. 22 (40-17) The shades cover his shadow, the willows of the brook shall compass him about. 23 (40-18) Behold, he will drink up a river, and not wonder: and he trusteth that the Jordan may run into his mouth. 24 (40-19) In his eyes as with a hook he shall take him, and bore through his nostrils with stakes.
