DAY 261 Job 37-39, Psalm 119:129-136

JOB
37:1
At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place.
37:2
Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.
37:3
He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.
37:4
After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.
37:5
God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
37:6
For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.
37:7
He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.
37:8
Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.
37:9
Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
37:10
By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.
37:11
Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:
37:12
And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.
37:13
He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.
37:14
Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
37:15
Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?
37:16
Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?
37:17
How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?
37:18
Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?
37:19
Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.
37:20
Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.
37:21
And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.
37:22
Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.
37:23
Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
37:24
Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.
38:1
Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
38:2
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
38:3
Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
38:4
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
38:5
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
38:6
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
38:7
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
38:8
Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
38:9
When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
38:10
And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
38:11
And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
38:12
Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
38:13
That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
38:14
It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.
38:15
And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.
38:16
Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
38:17
Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
38:18
Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
38:19
Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
38:20
That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
38:21
Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?
38:22
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
38:23
Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
38:24
By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
38:25
Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
38:26
To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;
38:27
To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
38:28
Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
38:29
Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
38:30
The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
38:31
Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
38:32
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
38:33
Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
38:34
Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
38:35
Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?
38:36
Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
38:37
Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
38:38
When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
38:39
Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
38:40
When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?
38:41
Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.
39:1
Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?
39:2
Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
39:3
They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.
39:4
Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.
39:5
Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?
39:6
Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.
39:7
He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.
39:8
The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.
39:9
Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?
39:10
Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
39:11
Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?
39:12
Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?
39:13
Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?
39:14
Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,
39:15
And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.
39:16
She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her's: her labour is in vain without fear;
39:17
Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.
39:18
What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
39:19
Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?
39:20
Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
39:21
He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.
39:22
He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.
39:23
The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.
39:24
He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.
39:25
He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
39:26
Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
39:27
Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
39:28
She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
39:29
From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.
39:30
Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

PSALMS
119:129
Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
119:130
The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
119:131
I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
119:132
Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
119:133
Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
119:134
Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
119:135
Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
119:136
Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.
