New American Bible (Revised Edition)
35 Can you send forth the lightnings on their way,
so that they say to you, “Here we are”?
36 Who gives wisdom to the ibis,
and gives the rooster[a] understanding?
37 Who counts the clouds with wisdom?
Who tilts the water jars of heaven
- 38:36 Ibis…rooster: the translation is uncertain.
