After it his voice roars;
    he thunders with his majestic voice
    and he does not restrain the lightnings[a] when his voice is heard.
God thunders wondrously with his voice;
    he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth’;
    and the shower of rain, his heavy shower of rain,
serves as a sign on everyone’s hand,
    so that all whom he has made may know it.[b]
Then the animals go into their lairs
    and remain in their dens.
From its chamber comes the whirlwind,
    and cold from the scattering winds.
10 By the breath of God ice is given,
    and the broad waters are frozen fast.
11 He loads the thick cloud with moisture;
    the clouds scatter his lightning.
12 They turn round and round by his guidance,
    to accomplish all that he commands them
    on the face of the habitable world.
13 Whether for correction, or for his land,
    or for love, he causes it to happen.

14 “Hear this, O Job;
    stop and consider the wondrous works of God.
