Job 38:36-38 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

36 Who has placed wisdom in the human heart
and given understanding to the mind?[a]

37 Who has the wisdom to count the clouds
and to empty the water jars of the sky,
38 when the loose dust has been poured into molds to harden,
and the clods of dirt are cemented together?

Footnotes:

  1. Job 38:36 The meanings of the words translated heart and mind are unknown. Some interpret them as names of birds, the ibis and rooster. Others interpret them as names of celestial phenomena, meteors or clouds.
