and leaps from my chest.37:1 Lit from its place
2Just listen to his thunderous voice
and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
3He lets it loose beneath the entire sky;
4Then there comes a roaring sound;
He does not restrain the lightning
when his rumbling voice is heard.
5God thunders wondrously with his voice;
he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
and the torrential rains, his mighty torrential rains,
7serve as his sign to all mankind,
so that all men may know his work.
8The wild animals enter their lairs
9The windstorm comes from its chamber,
and the cold from the driving north winds.
and watery expanses are frozen.
he scatters his lightning through them.
12They swirl about,
turning round and round at his direction,
accomplishing everything he commands them
over the surface of the inhabited world.
13He causes this to happen for punishment,
for his land, or for his faithful love.
14Listen to this, Job.
Stop and consider God’s wonders.
15Do you know how God directs his clouds
or makes their lightning flash?
16Do you understand how the clouds float,
those wonderful works of him who has perfect knowledge?
17You whose clothes get hot
when the south wind brings calm to the land,
18can you help God spread out the skies
as hard as a cast metal mirror?
we cannot prepare our case because of our darkness.
20Should he be told that I want to speak?
Can a man speak when he is confused?
21Now no one can even look at the sun
after a wind has swept through and cleared the sky.
22Out of the north he comes, shrouded in a golden glow;
23The Almighty — we cannot reach him —
he is exalted in power!
He will not violate justice and abundant righteousness,
24therefore, men fear him.
