1 “At this also my heart trembles
and leaps out of its place.
and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
and his lightning to the corners of the earth.
he thunders with his majestic voice,
and he does not restrain the lightningsa when his voice is heard.
he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
likewise to the downpour, his mighty downpour.
that all men whom he made may know it.
and remain in their dens.
and cold from the scattering winds.
and the broad waters are frozen fast.
the clouds scatter his lightning.
to accomplish all that he commands them
on the face of the habitable world.
or for love, he causes it to happen.
stop and consider the wondrous works of God.
and causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?
the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge,
when the earth is still because of the south wind?
hard as a cast metal mirror?
we cannot draw up our case because of darkness.
Did a man ever wish that he would be swallowed up?
when it is bright in the skies,
when the wind has passed and cleared them.
God is clothed with awesome majesty.
he is great in power;
justice and abundant righteousness he will not violate.
he does not regard any who are wise in their own conceit.”c
Job, 37 chapter. English Standard Version.
