Job Acknowledges God’s Power
5 “The ghosts of the dead[a] writhe under the waters along with those who live there with them. 6 Sheol[b] is naked before God[c] and Abaddon[d] has no clothes. 7 He spreads out the north over empty space, suspending the earth over nothing.

But who can comprehend the thunder of his might?”
