40 Jehovah continued to answer Job:
2 “Should a faultfinder contend with the Almighty?+
Let the one who wants to reprove God answer.”+
3 Job said in answer to Jehovah:
What can I reply to you?
I put my hand over my mouth.+
5 I spoke once, but I will not answer again;
Twice, but I will say no more.”
6 Then Jehovah answered Job out of the windstorm:+
8 Will you call into question* my justice?
Will you condemn me so that you may be right?+
10 Adorn yourself, please, with glory and majesty;
Clothe yourself with dignity and splendor.
11 Release the fury of your anger;
Look at everyone who is haughty, and bring him low.
12 Look at everyone who is haughty, and humble him,
And tread down the wicked where they stand.
13 Hide them all in the dust;
Bind them* in the hidden place,
14 Then even I would acknowledge to you*
That your right hand can save you.
15 Here, now, is Be·heʹmoth,* which I made as I made you.
It eats grass like a bull.
16 Look at the strength in its hips
And the power in the muscles of its belly!
17 It stiffens its tail like a cedar;
The sinews of its thighs are woven together.
18 Its bones are tubes of copper;
Its limbs are like wrought-iron rods.
20 For the mountains produce food for it,
Where all the wild animals play.
21 It lies down under the lotus trees,
In the shelter of the reeds of the marsh.
23 If the river is turbulent, it does not panic.
It is confident, although the Jordan+ rushes against its mouth.
