The Book of Job    38: 1, 12-21, 40: 3-5

38:1 But the Lord, responding to Job from a whirlwind, said:
38:12 Did you, after your birth, command the birth of the sun and show the sunrise its place?
38:13 And did you hold the extremities of the earth, shaking them, and have you shaken the impious out of it?
38:14 The seal will be restored like clay, and it will remain in place like a garment.
38:15 From the impious, the light will be taken away, and the exalted arm will be broken.
38:16 Have you entered the depths of the sea, and have you taken a walk in the uttermost parts of the abyss?
38:17 Have the gates of death been opened to you, and have you seen the doors of darkness?
38:18 Have you considered the breadth of the earth? If you know all things, reveal them to me.
38:19 Which is the way that holds the light, and which is the place of darkness?
38:20 In this way, you might lead each thing to its final place, and understand the paths of its house.
38:21 So then, did you know when you were to be born? And did you know the number of your days
40:3 Will you make my judgment null and void; and will you condemn me so that you may be justified?
40:4 And do you have an arm like God, or a voice like thunder?
40:5 Envelop yourself with splendor, and raise yourself up on high, and be glorious, and put on splendid garments.
