Job 38

38:1 Then the Lord answered Iob out of the whirlewind, and sayd, 38:2 Who is this that darkneth counsell by words without knowledge 38:3 Gird vp nowe thy loines like a man; for I will demaund of thee, and answere thou me. 38:4 Where wast thou when I layd the foundations of the earth Declare, if thou hast vnderstanding. 38:5 Who hath layd the measures thereof, if thou knowest Or who hath stretched the line vpon it 38:6 Wherepuon are the foundations thereof fastened Or who layd the corner stone thereof 38:7 When the morning starres sang together, and all the sonnes of God shouted for ioy. 38:8 Or who shut vp the sea with doores, when it brake foorth as if it had issued out of the wombe 38:9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thicke darknesse a swadling band for it, 38:10 And brake vp for it my decreed place, and set barres and doores, 38:11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and heere shall thy proud waues be stayed. 38:12 Hast thou commaunded the morning since thy daies And caused the day-spring to know his place, 38:13 That it might take hold of the endes of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it 38:14 It is turned as clay to the seale, and they stand as a garment. 38:15 And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arme shalbe broken. 38:16 Hast thou entred into the springs of the sea Or hast thou walked in the search of the depth 38:17 Haue the gates of death bene opened vnto thee Or hast thou seene the doores of the shadow of death 38:18 Hast thou perceiued the breadth of the earth Declare if thou knowest it all. 38:19 Where is the way where light dwelleth And as for darknesse, where is the place thereof 38:20 That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the pathes to the house thereof. 38:21 Knowest thou it, because thou wast then borne Or because the number of thy daies is great 38:22 Hast thou entred into the treasures of the snowe Or hast thou seene the treasures of the haile, 38:23 Which I haue reserued against the time of trouble, against the day of battaile and warre 38:24 By what way is the light parted Which scattereth the East wind vpon the earth. 38:25 Who hath diuided a water-course for the ouerflowing of waters Or a way for the lightning of thunder, 38:26 To cause it to raine on the earth, where no man is: on the wildernesse wherein there is no man 38:27 To satisfie the desolate and waste ground, and to cause the bud of the tender herbe to spring forth. 38:28 Hath the raine a father Or who hath begotten the drops of dew 38:29 Out of whose wombe came the yce And the hoary frost of heauen, who hath gendred it 38:30 The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deepe is frozen. 38:31 Canst thou bind the sweete influences of Pleiades Or loose the bands of Orion 38:32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season, or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sonnes 38:33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heauen Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth 38:34 Canst thou lift vp thy voice to the cloudes, that abundance of waters may couer thee 38:35 Canst thou send lightnings, that they may goe, and say vnto thee, Here we are 38:36 Who hath put wisedome in the inward parts Or who hath giuen vnderstanding to the heart 38:37 Who can number the cloudes in wisedome Or who can stay the bottles of heauen, 38:38 When the dust groweeh into hardnesse, and the clods cleaue fast together 38:39 Wilt thou hunt the pray for the lyon Or fill the appetite of the young lyons, 38:40 When they couch in their dennes, and abide in the couert to lie in waite 38:41 Who prouideth for the rauen his foode when his young ones cry vnto God, they wander for lacke of meate.
