26 And Job proceeded to answer and say:
2 “O how much help you have been to one without power!
O [how] you have saved an arm that is without strength!+
3 How much you have advised one that is without wisdom,+
And you have made practical wisdom itself known to the multitude!
4 To whom have you told words,
And whose breath* has come forth from you?
5 Those impotent in death* keep trembling
Beneath the waters and those residing in them.+
6 Sheʹol is naked in front of him,+
And [the place of] destruction* has no covering.
7 He is stretching out the north over the empty place,+
Hanging the earth upon nothing;
8 Wrapping up the waters in his clouds,+
So that the cloud mass is not split under them;
9 Enclosing the face of the throne,*
* over it his cloud.+Spreading out
10 He has described a circle upon the face of the waters,+
To where light ends in darkness.
11 The very pillars of heaven shake,
And they are amazed because of his rebuke.
12 By his power he has stirred up the sea,+
And by his understanding he has broken the stormer*+ to pieces.+
13 By his wind* he has polished up heaven itself,+
His hand has pierced the gliding serpent.+
14 Look! These are the fringes of his ways,+
And what a whisper of a matter has been heard of him!
But of his mighty thunder who can show an understanding?”+
