38:1 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind: 2“Who is this who darkens counsel with words without knowledge? 3Get ready for a difficult task like a man; I will question you, and you will inform me. 4“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you possess understanding. 5Who set its measurements—if you know— or who stretched a measuring line across it? 6On what were its bases set, or who laid its cornerstone— 7when the morning stars sang in chorus, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8“Who shut up the sea with doors when it burst forth, coming out of the womb, 9when I made the storm clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, 10when I prescribed its limits and set in place its bolts and doors, 11when I said, ‘To here you may come and no farther, here your proud waves will be confined’? 12Have you ever in your life commanded the morning, or made the dawn know its place, 13that it might seize the corners of the earth and shake the wicked out of it? 14The earth takes shape like clay under a seal; its features are dyed like a garment. 15Then from the wicked the light is withheld, and the arm raised in violence is broken. 16Have you gone to the springs that fill the sea or walked about in the recesses of the deep? 17Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Have you seen the gates of deepest darkness? 18Have you considered the vast expanses of the earth? Tell me, if you know it all. 19“In what direction does light reside, and darkness, where is its place, 20that you may take them to their borders and perceive the pathways to their homes? 21You know, for you were born before them; and the number of your days is great! 22Have you entered the storehouse of the snow or seen the armory of the hail, 23which I reserve for the time of trouble, for the day of war and battle? 24In what direction is lightning dispersed, or the east winds scattered over the earth? 25Who carves out a channel for the heavy rains and a path for the rumble of thunder, 26to cause it to rain on an uninhabited land, a wilderness where there are no human beings, 27to satisfy a devastated and desolate land, and to cause it to sprout with vegetation? 28Does the rain have a father, or who has fathered the drops of the dew? 29From whose womb does the ice emerge, and the frost from the sky, who gives birth to it, 30when the waters become hard like stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen solid? 31Can you tie the bands of the Pleiades or release the cords of Orion? 32Can you lead out the constellations in their seasons or guide the Bear with its cubs? 33Do you know the laws of the heavens, or can you set up their rule over the earth? 34Can you raise your voice to the clouds so that a flood of water covers you? 35Can you send out lightning bolts, and they go? Will they say to you, ‘Here we are’? 36Who has put wisdom in the heart or has imparted understanding to the mind? 37Who by wisdom can count the clouds, and who can tip over the water jars of heaven, 38when the dust hardens into a mass, and the clumps of earth stick together? 39“Do you hunt prey for the lioness and satisfy the appetite of the lions 40when they crouch in their dens, when they wait in ambush in the thicket? 41Who prepares prey for the raven, when its young cry out to God and wander about for lack of food? 39:1 “Are you acquainted with the way the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch as the wild deer give birth to their young? 2Do you count the months they must fulfill, and do you know the time they give birth? 3They crouch; they bear their young; they bring forth the offspring they have carried. 4Their young grow strong and grow up in the open; they go off and do not return to them. 5Who let the wild donkey go free? Who released the bonds of the donkey, 6to whom I appointed the arid rift valley for its home, the salt wastes as its dwelling place? 7It scorns the tumult in the town; it does not hear the shouts of a driver. 8It ranges the hills as its pasture and searches after every green plant. 9Is the wild ox willing to be your servant? Will it spend the night at your feeding trough? 10Can you bind the wild ox to a furrow with its rope; will it till the valleys, following after you? 11Will you rely on it because its strength is great? Will you commit your labor to it? 12Can you count on it to bring in your grain and gather the grain to your threshing floor? 13 “The wings of the ostrich flap with joy, but are they the pinions and plumage of a stork? 14For she leaves her eggs on the ground and lets them be warmed on the soil. 15She forgets that a foot might crush them or that a wild animal might trample them. 16She is harsh with her young, as if they were not hers; she is unconcerned about the uselessness of her labor. 17For God deprived her of wisdom and did not impart understanding to her. 18But as soon as she springs up, she laughs at the horse and its rider. 19“Do you give the horse its strength? Do you clothe its neck with a mane? 20Do you make it leap like a locust? Its proud neighing is terrifying! 21It paws the ground in the valley, exulting mightily; it goes out to meet the weapons. 22It laughs at fear and is not dismayed; it does not shy away from the sword. 23On it the quiver rattles; the lance and javelin flash. 24In excitement and impatience it consumes the ground; it cannot stand still when the trumpet is blown. 25At the sound of the trumpet, it says, ‘Aha!’ And from a distance it catches the scent of battle, the thunderous shouting of commanders, and the battle cries. 26“Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars and spreads its wings toward the south? 27Is it at your command that the eagle soars and builds its nest on high? 28It lives on a rock and spends the night there, on a rocky crag and a fortress. 29From there it spots its prey; its eyes gaze intently from a distance. 30And its young ones devour the blood, and where the dead carcasses are, there it is.” (NET Bible)
