Job 40:10-12 New English Translation (NET Bible)

10 Adorn yourself, then, with majesty and excellency,
and clothe yourself with glory and honor.
11 Scatter abroad[a] the abundance[b] of your anger.
Look at every proud man[c] and bring him low;
12 Look at every proud man and abase him;
crush the wicked on the spot.[d]


  1. Job 40:11 tn The verb was used for scattering lightning (Job 37:11). God is challenging Job to unleash his power and judge wickedness in the world.
  2. Job 40:11 tn Heb “the overflowings.”
  3. Job 40:11 tn The word was just used in the positive sense of excellence or majesty; now the exalted nature of the person refers to self-exaltation, or pride.
  4. Job 40:12 tn The expression translated “on the spot” is the prepositional phrase תַּחְתָּם (takhtam, “under them”). “Under them” means in their place. But it can also mean “where someone stands, on the spot” (see Exod 16:29; Jos 6:5; Judg 7:21, etc.).
