Job 26 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Job’s Reply to Bildad

26 Then Job answered:

How you have helped the powerless
and delivered the arm that is weak!
How you have counseled the unwise
and abundantly provided insight!
With whom did you speak these words?
Whose breath came out of your mouth?

The departed spirits tremble
beneath the waters and all that inhabit them.
Sheol is naked before God,
and Abaddon has no covering.

He stretches the northern skies over empty space;
he hangs the earth on nothing.
He wraps up the water in his clouds,
yet the clouds do not burst beneath its weight.
He obscures the view of his throne,
spreading his cloud over it.
10 He laid out the horizon on the surface of the waters
at the boundary between light and darkness.
11 The pillars that hold up the sky tremble,
astounded at his rebuke.
12 By his power he stirred the sea,
and by his understanding he crushed Rahab.

13 By his breath the heavens gained their beauty;
his hand pierced the fleeing serpent.[a]
14 These are but the fringes of his ways;
how faint is the word we hear of him!
Who can understand his mighty thunder?
