Job 12:7-13 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you;
    the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
ask the plants of the earth,[a] and they will teach you;
    and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
    that the hand of the Lord has done this?
10 In his hand is the life of every living thing
    and the breath of every human being.
11 Does not the ear test words
    as the palate tastes food?
12 Is wisdom with the aged,
    and understanding in length of days?

13 “With God[b] are wisdom and strength;
    he has counsel and understanding.
