The Lord Challenges Job

Then the Lord (A)answered Job out of the whirlwind and said:

(B)“Dress for action[a] like a man;
    (C)I will question you, and you make it known to me.
Will you even put me in the wrong?
    Will you condemn me that (D)you may be in the right?
Have you (E)an arm like God,
    and can you thunder with (F)a voice like his?

10 “Adorn yourself with majesty and dignity;
    (G)clothe yourself with glory and splendor.
11 Pour out the overflowings of your anger,
    and look on everyone who is (H)proud and abase him.
12 Look on everyone who is proud and bring him low
    and (I)tread down the wicked (J)where they stand.
13 (K)Hide them all in (L)the dust together;
    bind their faces in the world below.[b]
14 Then will I also acknowledge to you
    that your own (M)right hand can save you.
