Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in his hands? Who has bound up the waters in a cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is the name of his son— if you know?
When he thunders, the waters in the heavens are in turmoil, and he causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain and brings the wind from his storehouses.
I will make it a wasteland. It will not be pruned or weeded; thorns and briers will grow up. I will also give orders to the clouds that rain should not fall on it.
Then God said,“ Let there be an expanse between the waters, separating water from water.”So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above the expanse. And it was so.
He rode on a cherub and flew, soaring on the wings of the wind.He made darkness his hiding place, dark storm clouds his canopy around him.
He causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain and brings the wind from his storehouses.
Can anyone understand how the clouds spread out or how the thunder roars from God’s pavilion?
when I made the clouds its garment and total darkness its blanket,
Who has the wisdom to number the clouds? Or who can tilt the water jars of heaven
He saturates clouds with moisture; he scatters his lightning through them.They swirl about, turning round and round at his direction, accomplishing everything he commands them over the surface of the inhabited world.He causes this to happen for punishment, for his land, or for his faithful love.Listen to this, Job. Stop and consider God’s wonders.Do you know how God directs his clouds or makes their lightning flash?Do you understand how the clouds float, those wonderful works of him who has perfect knowledge?
