Job, reproving the uncharitable spirit of Bildad,
Job 26:1 Iob answered, and said: Job 26:2 O how helpest thou the weake? what comforte geuest thou vnto hym that hath no strength? Job 26:3 Where is the counsell that thou shouldest geue him, which hath no wysedome? Wilt thou so shew thine excellent ryghteousnes? Job 26:4 Before whom haste thou spoken those wordes? Who made the breth to come out of the mouth?
acknowledgeth the power of God to be infinite and unsearchable.
Job 26:5 The gyauntes & worthies that are slayne, and lye vnder the worlde with their companions: Job 26:6 yea & all they which dwell beneth in the hell are not hid from him, and the very destruccion it selfe can not be kepte oute of his sighte. Job 26:7 He stretched oute the north ouer the emptie, & hangeth the earth vpon nothinge. Job 26:8 He bindeth the water in hys cloudes, that they fall not doune together. Job 26:9 He holdeth back his stoul, that it can not be sene, and spredeth his cloudes before it. Job 26:10 He hath compaseth the waters wt certayne boundes, vntill the day and night come to an ende. Job 26:11 The very pillers of heauen tremble & quake at his reprofe. Job 26:12 He stilleth the sea with his power, and thorow hys wisdom hath he set forthe þe world. Job 26:13 Wyth his spirites hath he garnisshed the heauens, & with his hand hath he wounded the rebellious serpent. Job 26:14 This is nowe a short summe of his doynges. But who is able sufficiently to rehearse his workes? Who can perceyue and vnderstand the thondre of his power?
