1: "Yes, at this my heart trembles, and is moved out of its place.
2: Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, the sound that goes out of his mouth.
3: He sends it forth under the whole sky, and his lightning to the ends of the earth.
4: After it a voice roars. He thunders with the voice of his majesty. He doesn't hold back anything when his voice is heard.
5: God thunders marvelously with his voice. He does great things, which we can't comprehend.
6: For he says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth;' likewise to the shower of rain, and to the showers of his mighty rain.
7: He seals up the hand of every man, that all men whom he has made may know it.
8: Then the animals take cover, and remain in their dens.
9: Out of its room comes the storm, and cold out of the north.
10: By the breath of God, ice is given, and the breadth of the waters is frozen.
11: Yes, he loads the thick cloud with moisture. He spreads abroad the cloud of his lightning.
12: It is turned around by his guidance, that they may do whatever he commands them on the surface of the habitable world,
13: Whether it is for correction, or for his land, or for loving kindness, that he causes it to come.
14: "Listen to this, Job. Stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
15: Do you know how God controls them, and causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?
16: Do you know the workings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge?
17: You whose clothing is warm, when the earth is still by reason of the south wind?
18: Can you, with him, spread out the sky, which is strong as a cast metal mirror?
19: Teach us what we shall tell him, for we can't make our case by reason of darkness.
20: Shall it be told him that I would speak? Or should a man wish that he were swallowed up?
21: Now men don't see the light which is bright in the skies, but the wind passes, and clears them.
22: Out of the north comes golden splendor. With God is awesome majesty.
23: We can't reach the Almighty. He is exalted in power. In justice and great righteousness, he will not oppress.
24: Therefore men revere him. He doesn't regard any who are wise of heart."
