The Lord Answers Job
38 Then the Lord qanswered Job out of the whirlwind and said:
I will question you, and you make it known to me.
4 “Where were you when I ulaid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
7 when the morning stars vsang together
34 “Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,
that xa flood of waters may cover you?
35 Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go
and say to you, ‘Here we are’?
or given understanding to the mind?2
37 Who can number the clouds by wisdom?
Or who can tilt the waterskins of the heavens,
38 when the dust runs into a mass
and athe clods stick fast together?
39 “Can you hunt the prey for the lion,
or bsatisfy the appetite of the young lions,
40 when they crouch in their cdens
or lie in wait din their thicket?
41 Who provides for ethe raven its prey,
when its young ones cry to God for help,
and wander about for lack of food?
