1Indeed, my heart trembles at this; it is moved out of its place.
2Hear, oh, hear the noise of his voice, the sound that goes out from his mouth.
3He sends it out under the whole sky, and he sends out his lightning to the edges of the earth.
4A voice roars after it; he thunders with the voice of his majesty; he does not restrain the lightning bolts when his voice is heard.
5God thunders marvelously with his voice; he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
6For he says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth'; likewise to the rain shower, 'Become a great shower of rain.'
7He stops the hand of every man from working, so that all people whom he has made may see his deeds.
8Then the beasts go into hiding and stay in their dens.
9The storm comes from its chamber in the south and the cold from the scattering winds in the north.
10By the breath of God ice is given; the expanse of the waters is frozen like metal.
11Indeed, he weighs down the thick cloud with moisture; he scatters his lightning through the clouds.
12He swirls the clouds around by his guidance, so that they may do whatever he commands them above the surface of the whole world.
13He makes all of this happen; sometimes it happens for correction, sometimes for his land, and sometimes as acts of covenant faithfulness.
14Listen to this, Job; stop and think about God's marvelous deeds.
15Do you know how God establishes the clouds and makes the lightning bolts to flash in them?
16Do you understand the floating of the clouds, the marvelous deeds of God, who is perfect in knowledge?
17Do you understand how your garments become hot when the land is still because the wind comes from the south?
18Can you spread out the sky as he can— the sky, which is as strong as a mirror of cast metal?

19Teach us what we should say to him, for we cannot lay out our arguments in order because of the darkness of our minds.
20Should he be told that I wish to speak with him? Would a person wish to be swallowed up?
21Now, people cannot look at the sun when it is bright in the sky after the wind has passed through and has cleared it of its clouds.
22Out of the north comes golden splendor— over God is fearsome majesty.
23As for the Almighty, we cannot find him! He is great in power; he does not oppress justice and abundant righteousness.
24Therefore, people fear him. He does not pay any attention to those who are wise in their own minds.”
