|And Jehovah answered Job and said,
|Shall he that will contend with the Almighty instruct [him]? he that reproveth +God, let him answer it.
|And Job answered Jehovah and said,
|Behold, I am nought: what shall I answer thee? I will lay my hand upon my mouth.
|Once have I spoken, and I will not answer; yea twice, but I will proceed no further.
|And Jehovah answered Job out of the whirlwind and said,
|Gird up now thy loins like a man: I will demand of thee, and inform thou me.
|Wilt thou also annul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me that thou mayest be righteous?
|Hast thou an arm like �God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?
|Deck thyself now with glory and excellency, and clothe thyself with majesty and splendour.
|Cast abroad the ragings of thine anger, and look on every one that is proud, and abase him:
|Look on every one that is proud, bring him low, and tread down the wicked in their place:
|Hide them in the dust together; bind their faces in secret.
|Then will I also praise thee, because thy right hand saveth thee.
|See now the behemoth, which I made with thee: he eateth grass as an ox.
|Behold now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the muscles of his belly.
|He bendeth his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are woven together.
|His bones are tubes of bronze, his members are like bars of iron.
|He is the chief of �God's ways: he that made him gave him his sword.
|For the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.
|He lieth under lotus-bushes, in the covert of the reed and fen:
|Lotus-bushes cover him with their shade; the willows of the brook surround him.
|Lo, the river overfloweth -- he startleth not: he is confident though a Jordan break forth against his mouth.
|Shall he be taken in front? will they pierce through [his] nose in the trap?
