JOB 38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
JOB 38:2 Who [is] this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
JOB 38:3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
JOB 38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
JOB 38:5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
JOB 38:6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
JOB 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
JOB 38:8 Or [who] shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, [as if] it had issued out of the womb?
JOB 38:9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
JOB 38:10 And brake up for it my decreed [place], and set bars and doors,
JOB 38:11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
JOB 38:12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; [and] caused the dayspring to know his place;
JOB 38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
JOB 38:14 It is turned as clay [to] the seal; and they stand as a garment.
JOB 38:15 And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.
JOB 38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
JOB 38:17 Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
JOB 38:18 Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
JOB 38:19 Where [is] the way [where] light dwelleth? and [as for] darkness, where [is] the place thereof,
JOB 38:20 That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths [to] the house thereof?
JOB 38:21 Knowest thou [it], because thou wast then born? or [because] the number of thy days [is] great?
JOB 38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
JOB 38:23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
JOB 38:24 By what way is the light parted, [which] scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
JOB 38:25 Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
JOB 38:26 To cause it to rain on the earth, [where] no man [is; on] the wilderness, wherein [there is] no man;
JOB 38:27 To satisfy the desolate and waste [ground]; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
JOB 38:28 Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
JOB 38:29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
JOB 38:30 The waters are hid as [with] a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
JOB 38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
JOB 38:32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
JOB 38:33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
JOB 38:34 Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
JOB 38:35 Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we [are]?
JOB 38:36 Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
JOB 38:37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
JOB 38:38 When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
