Job 37

GNT 1 The storm makes my heart beat wildly. NIV 1 “At this my heart pounds and leaps from its place. GNT 2 Listen, all of you, to the voice of God, to the thunder that comes from his mouth. NIV 2 Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice, to the rumbling that comes from his mouth. GNT 3 He sends the lightning across the sky, from one end of the earth to the other. NIV 3 He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth. GNT 4 Then the roar of his voice is heard, the majestic sound of thunder, and all the while the lightning flashes. NIV 4 After that comes the sound of his roar; he thunders with his majestic voice. When his voice resounds, he holds nothing back. GNT 5 At God's command amazing things happen, wonderful things that we can't understand. NIV 5 God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. GNT 6 He commands snow to fall on the earth, and sends torrents of drenching rain. NIV 6 He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’ GNT 7 He brings our work to a stop; he shows us what he can do. NIV 7 So that everyone he has made may know his work, he stops all people from their labor. GNT 8 The wild animals go to their dens. NIV 8 The animals take cover; they remain in their dens. GNT 9 The storm winds come from the south, and the biting cold from the north. NIV 9 The tempest comes out from its chamber, the cold from the driving winds. GNT 10 The breath of God freezes the waters, and turns them to solid ice. NIV 10 The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen. GNT 11 Lightning flashes from the clouds, NIV 11 He loads the clouds with moisture; he scatters his lightning through them. GNT 12 as they move at God's will. They do all that God commands, everywhere throughout the world. NIV 12 At his direction they swirl around over the face of the whole earth to do whatever he commands them. GNT 13 God sends rain to water the earth; he may send it to punish us, or to show us his favor. NIV 13 He brings the clouds to punish people, or to water his earth and show his love. GNT 14 Pause a moment, Job, and listen; consider the wonderful things God does. NIV 14 “Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God’s wonders. GNT 15 Do you know how God gives the command and makes lightning flash from the clouds? NIV 15 Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? GNT 16 Do you know how clouds float in the sky, the work of God's amazing skill? NIV 16 Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who has perfect knowledge? GNT 17 No, you can only suffer in the heat when the south wind oppresses the land. NIV 17 You who swelter in your clothes when the land lies hushed under the south wind, GNT 18 Can you help God stretch out the sky and make it as hard as polished metal? NIV 18 can you join him in spreading out the skies, hard as a mirror of cast bronze? GNT 19 Teach us what to say to God; our minds are blank; we have nothing to say. NIV 19 “Tell us what we should say to him; we cannot draw up our case because of our darkness. GNT 20 I won't ask to speak with God; why should I give him a chance to destroy me? NIV 20 Should he be told that I want to speak? Would anyone ask to be swallowed up? GNT 21 And now the light in the sky is dazzling, too bright for us to look at it; and the sky has been swept clean by the wind. NIV 21 Now no one can look at the sun, bright as it is in the skies after the wind has swept them clean. GNT 22 A golden glow is seen in the north, and the glory of God fills us with awe. NIV 22 Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty. GNT 23 God's power is so great that we cannot come near him; he is righteous and just in his dealings with us. NIV 23 The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. GNT 24 No wonder, then, that everyone is awed by him, and that he ignores those who claim to be wise. NIV 24 Therefore, people revere him, for does he not have regard for all the wise in heart? ”
