THE BOOK OF
Job 26 ©
Job, having charged Bildad that he had more terrified than comforted him, v. 1, etc. Confesses and describes the works of God’s incomprehensible majesty, whereof Bildad had begun to speak, 5. And shows that we are able to relate but very little of the same, 14.
BUT Job answered and said,
How hast 1thou helped 2him that is 3without power? 4how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?
How hast thou 5counselled 6him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou 7plentifully declared 8the thing as it is?
To whom hast thou uttered 9words? and 10whose spirit came from thee?
11Dead 12things are 13formed 14from under the waters, 15and the inhabitants thereof.
16Hell is nakeda17before him, and 18destruction hath no covering.
19Heb stretcheth out 20the north over 21the empty place, and hangeth the earth 22upon nothing.
23He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud 24is not rent 25under them.
Hec holdeth back 26the face of his 27throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.
Hed hath compassed the waters with 28bounds, 29untile the day and night come to an end.
30The pillars of heaven tremble and are 31astonished at his reproof.
He 32dividethf the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through 33the proud.
Byg his spirit he 34hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed 35the crooked serpent.
Lo, 36these are 37parts of his ways: but how 38little a portion is heard of him? but 39the thunder of his power who can understand?
