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?

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 40 (KJVS)

[1] Moreover the LORD H3068 answered H6030 (8799) Job H347, and said H559 (8799),
[2] Shall he that contendeth H7378 (8800) with the Almighty H7706 instruct H3250 [him]? he that reproveth H3198 (8688) God H433, let him answer H6030 (8799) it.
[3] Then Job H347 answered H6030 (8799) the LORD H3068, and said H559 (8799),
[4] Behold, I am vile H7043 (8804); what shall I answer H7725 (8686) thee? I will lay H7760 (8804) mine hand H3027 upon H3926 my mouth H6310.
[5] Once H259 have I spoken H1696 (8765); but I will not answer H6030 (8799): yea, twice H8147; but I will proceed no further H3254 (8686).
[6] Then answered H6030 (8799) the LORD H3068 unto Job H347 out of the whirlwind H5591, and said H559 (8799),
[7] Gird up H247 (8798) thy loins H2504 now like a man H1397: I will demand H7592 (8799) of thee, and declare H3045 (8685) thou unto me.
[8] Wilt thou also disannul H6565 (8686) my judgment H4941? wilt thou condemn H7561 (8686) me, that thou mayest be righteous H6663 (8799)?
[9] Hast thou an arm H2220 like God H410? or canst thou thunder H7481 (8686) with a voice H6963 like him?
[10] Deck H5710 (8798) thyself now [with] majesty H1347 and excellency H1363; and array H3847 (8799) thyself with glory H1935 and beauty H1926.
[11] Cast abroad H6327 (8685) the rage H5678 of thy wrath H639: and behold H7200 (8798) every one [that is] proud H1343, and abase H8213 (8685) him.
[12] Look H7200 (8798) on every one [that is] proud H1343, [and] bring him low H3665 (8685); and tread down H1915 (8798) the wicked H7563 in their place.
[13] Hide H2934 (8798) them in the dust H6083 together H3162; [and] bind H2280 (8798) their faces H6440 in secret H2934 (8803).
[14] Then will I also confess H3034 (8686) unto thee that thine own right hand H3225 can save H3467 (8686) thee.
[15] Behold now behemoth H930, which I made H6213 (8804) with thee; he eateth H398 (8799) grass H2682 as an ox H1241.
[16] Lo now, his strength H3581 [is] in his loins H4975, and his force H202 [is] in the navel H8306 of his belly H990.
[17] He moveth H2654 (8799) his tail H2180 like a cedar H730: the sinews H1517 of his stones H6344 are wrapped together H8276 (8792).
[18] His bones H6106 [are as] strong H650 pieces of brass H5154; his bones H1634 [are] like bars H4300 of iron H1270.
[19] He [is] the chief H7225 of the ways H1870 of God H410: he that made H6213 (8802) him can make H5066 his sword H2719 to approach H5066 (8686) [unto him].
[20] Surely the mountains H2022 bring him forth H5375 (8799) food H944, where all the beasts H2416 of the field H7704 play H7832 (8762).
[21] He lieth H7901 (8799) under the shady trees H6628, in the covert H5643 of the reed H7070, and fens H1207.
[22] The shady trees H6628 cover H5526 (8799) him [with] their shadow H6752; the willows H6155 of the brook H5158 compass him about H5437 (8799).
[23] Behold, he drinketh up H6231 (8799) a river H5104, [and] hasteth H2648 (8799) not: he trusteth H982 (8799) that he can draw up H1518 (8799) Jordan H3383 into his mouth H6310.
[24] He taketh H3947 (8799) it with his eyes H5869: [his] nose H639 pierceth through H5344 (8799) snares H4170.

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?
