40 And Jehovah answered Job
2 “Does an admonisher dispute with Shaddai?
let him who corrects God answer it.”
3 And Job answered Jehovah
4 “Here I am, insignificant—what reply should I make?
I lay my hand on my mouth.
5 I did speak once, but will not answer—
and twice; but I will do it no more.”
6 And Jehovah answered Job out of a tempest
7 “Gird your loins like a man
so that I may ask you questions and you inform me.
8 Will you even quash my judgment,
hold me in the wrong so that you may be in the right?
9 Or do you have an arm like God’s,
do you thunder with a voice like his?
10 Bedeck yourself with dignity and sublimity,
robing yourself in majesty and splendor,
14 And I too will praise you
that your right hand has made good your cause.
16 Here is the strength in its back
and the vigor in the muscles of its belly.
21 Under jujube-trees it lies,
in a blind of reeds and morass,
it is undaunted though a Jordan bursts against its mouth;
