God is to be feared because of his great works.
Job 37:1 At this also mine heart is astonied, & is mooued out of his place. Job 37:2 Heare the sound of his voyce, and the noyse that goeth out of his mouth. Job 37:3 He directeth it vnder the whole heauen, and his light vnto the endes of the world. Job 37:4 After it a noyse soundeth: hee thundereth with the voyce of his maiestie, and hee will not stay them when his voyce is heard. Job 37:5 God thundereth marueilously with his voyce: he worketh great things, which we know not. Job 37:6 For he sayth to the snowe, Be thou vpon the earth: likewise to the small rayne and to the great rayne of his power. Job 37:7 With the force thereof he shutteth vp euery man, that all men may knowe his worke. Job 37:8 Then the beastes go into the denne, and remaine in their places. Job 37:9 The whirlewind commeth out of the South, and the colde from the North winde. Job 37:10 At the breath of God the frost is giuen, & the breadth of the waters is made narrowe. Job 37:11 He maketh also the cloudes to labour, to water the earth, and scattereth the cloude of his light. Job 37:12 And it is turned about by his gouernment, that they may doe whatsoeuer he commandeth them vpon the whole worlde: Job 37:13 Whether it be for punishment, or for his lande, or of mercie, he causeth it to come. Job 37:14 Hearken vnto this, O Iob: stand and consider the wonderous workes of God.
His wisdom is unsearchable in them.
Job 37:15 Diddest thou knowe when God disposed them? & caused the light of his cloud to shine? Job 37:16 Hast thou knowen the varietie of the cloude, and the wonderous workes of him, that is perfite in knowledge? Job 37:17 Or howe thy clothes are warme, when he maketh the earth quiet through the South winde? Job 37:18 Hast thou stretched out the heaues, which are strong, and as a molten glasse? Job 37:19 Tell vs what we shall say vnto him: for we can not dispose our matter because of darknes. Job 37:20 Shall it be told him when I speake? Or shall man speake when he shalbe destroyed? Job 37:21 And nowe men see not the light, which shineth in the cloudes, but the winde passeth and clenseth them. Job 37:22 The brightnesse commeth out of the North: the praise thereof is to God, which is terrible. Job 37:23 It is the Almightie: we can not finde him out: he is excellent in power and iudgement, & aboundant in iustice: he afflicteth not. Job 37:24 Let men therefore feare him: for he will not regarde any that are wise in their owne conceit.
