I told it, "So far and no farther! Here your powerful waves must stop."
Job, have you ever in all your life commanded a day to dawn?
Have you ordered the dawn to seize the earth and shake the wicked from their hiding places?
Daylight makes the hills and valleys stand out like the folds of a garment, clear as the imprint of a seal on clay.
The light of day is too bright for the wicked and restrains them from doing violence.
Have you been to the springs in the depths of the sea? Have you walked on the floor of the ocean?
Has anyone ever shown you the gates that guard the dark world of the dead?
Have you any idea how big the world is? Answer me if you know.
Do you know where the light comes from or what the source of darkness is?
Can you show them how far to go, or send them back again?
I am sure you can, because you're so old and were there when the world was made!
