Job 40 (WEBP)

[1] Moreover Yahweh answered Job,
[2] “Shall he who argues contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it.”
[3] Then Job answered Yahweh,
[4] “Behold, I am of small account. What will I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth.
[5] I have spoken once, and I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further.”
[6] Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind:
[7] “Now brace yourself like a man. I will question you, and you will answer me.
[8] Will you even annul my judgment? Will you condemn me, that you may be justified?
[9] Or do you have an arm like God? Can you thunder with a voice like him?
[10] “Now deck yourself with excellency and dignity. Array yourself with honor and majesty.
[11] Pour out the fury of your anger. Look at everyone who is proud, and bring him low.
[12] Look at everyone who is proud, and humble him. Crush the wicked in their place.
[13] Hide them in the dust together. Bind their faces in the hidden place.
[14] Then I will also admit to you that your own right hand can save you.
[15] “See now behemoth, which I made as well as you. He eats grass as an ox.
[16] Look now, his strength is in his thighs. His force is in the muscles of his belly.
[17] He moves his tail like a cedar. The sinews of his thighs are knit together.
[18] His bones are like tubes of bronze. His limbs are like bars of iron.
[19] He is the chief of the ways of God. He who made him gives him his sword.
[20] Surely the mountains produce food for him, where all the animals of the field play.
[21] He lies under the lotus trees, in the covert of the reed, and the marsh.
[22] The lotuses cover him with their shade. The willows of the brook surround him.
[23] Behold, if a river overflows, he doesn’t tremble. He is confident, though the Jordan swells even to his mouth.
[24] Shall any take him when he is on the watch, or pierce through his nose with a snare?

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 40 (YLT)

[1] And Jehovah doth answer Job, and saith:-
[2] Is the striver with the Mighty instructed? The reprover of God, let him answer it.
[3] And Job answereth Jehovah, and saith:-
[4] Lo, I have been vile, What do I return to Thee? My hand I have placed on my mouth.
[5] Once I have spoken, and I answer not, And twice, and I add not.
[6] And Jehovah answereth Job out of the whirlwind, and saith:-
[7] Gird, I pray thee, as a man, thy loins, I ask thee, and cause thou Me to know.
[8] Dost thou also make void My judgment? Dost thou condemn Me, That thou mayest be righteous?
[9] And an arm like God hast thou? And with a voice like Him dost thou thunder?
[10] Put on, I pray thee, excellency and loftiness, Yea, honour and beauty put on.
[11] Scatter abroad the wrath of thine anger, And see every proud one, and make him low.
[12] See every proud one-humble him, And tread down the wicked in their place.
[13] Hide them in the dust together, Their faces bind in secret.
[14] And even I-I do praise thee, For thy right hand giveth salvation to thee.
[15] Lo, I pray thee, Behemoth, that I made with thee: Grass as an ox he eateth.
[16] Lo, I pray thee, his power is in his loins, And his strength in the muscles of his belly.
[17] He doth bend his tail as a cedar, The sinews of his thighs are wrapped together,
[18] His bones are tubes of brass, His bones are as a bar of iron.
[19] He is a beginning of the ways of God, His Maker bringeth nigh his sword;
[20] For food do mountains bear for him, And all the beasts of the field play there.
[21] Under shades he lieth down, In a secret place of reed and mire.
[22] Cover him do shades, with their shadow, Cover him do willows of the brook.
[23] Lo, a flood oppresseth-he doth not haste, He is confident though Jordan Doth come forth unto his mouth.
[24] Before his eyes doth one take him, With snares doth one pierce the nose?
