JOB · Chapter 40
40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,
40:2 Shall he that contends with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproves God, let him answer it.
40:3 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
40:4 Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer you? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.
40:5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.
40:6 Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
40:7 Gird up your loins now like a man: I will demand of you, and declare you unto me.
40:8 Will you also nullify my judgment? will you condemn me, that you may be righteous?
40:9 Have you an arm like God? or can you thunder with a voice like him?
40:10 Deck yourself now with majesty and excellency; and array yourself with glory and beauty.
40:11 Cast abroad the rage of your wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and bring low him.
40:12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
40:13 Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret.
40:14 Then will I also confess unto you that your own right hand can save you.
40:15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with you; he eats grass as an ox.
40:16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.
40:17 He moves his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
40:18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.
40:19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.
40:20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
40:21 He lies under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.
40:22 The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.
40:23 Behold, he drinks up a river, and hastes not: he trusts that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.
40:24 He takes it with his eyes: his nose pierces through snares.
