1Yahweh continued to speak to Job; he said,
2“Should anyone who wishes to criticize try to correct the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer.”
3Then Job answered Yahweh and said,
4“See, I am insignificant; how can I answer you? I put my hand over my mouth.
5I spoke once, and I will not answer; indeed, twice, but I will proceed no further.”
6Then Yahweh answered Job out of a fierce storm and said,
7“Now gird up your loins like a man, for I will ask you questions, and you must answer me.
8Will you actually say that I am unjust? Will you condemn me so you may claim you are right?
9Do you have an arm like God's? Can you thunder with a voice like him?
10Now clothe yourself in glory and dignity; array yourself in honor and majesty.
11Scatter around the excess of your anger; look at everyone who is proud and bring him down.
12Look at everyone who is proud and bring him low; trample down wicked people where they stand.
13Bury them in the earth together; imprison their faces in the hidden place.
14Then will I also acknowledge about you that your own right hand can save you.
15Look now at the behemoth, which I made when I made you; he eats grass like an ox.
16See now, his strength is in his loins; his power is in his belly's muscles.
17He makes his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are joined together.
18His bones are like tubes of bronze; his legs are like bars of iron.

19He is the chief of the creatures of God. Only God, who made him, can defeat him.
20For the hills provide him with food; the beasts of the field play nearby.
21He lies under the lotus plants in the shelter of the reeds, in the marshes.
22The lotus plants cover him with their shade; the willows of the brook are all around him.
23See, if a river floods its banks, he does not tremble; he is confident, though the Jordan should surge up to his mouth.
24Can anyone capture him with a hook, or pierce his nose through with a snare?
