Context
Elihu Proclaims God's Majesty

1At this also my heart trembles, and is moved out of his place. 2Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goes out of his mouth. 3He directs it under the whole heaven, and his lightning to the ends of the earth. 4After it a voice roars: he thunders with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard. 5God thunders marvelously with his voice; great things does he, which we cannot comprehend. 6For he said to the snow, Be you on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength. 7He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. 8Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places. 9Out of the south comes the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. 10By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11Also by watering he wearies the thick cloud: he scatters his bright cloud: 12And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatever he commands them on the face of the world in the earth. 13He causes it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. 14Listen to this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God. 15Do you know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine? 16Do you know the balancing of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge? 17How your garments are warm, when he quiets the earth by the south wind? 18Have you with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass? 19Teach us what we shall say to him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness. 20Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up. 21And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passes, and cleans them. 22Fair weather comes out of the north: with God is terrible majesty. 23Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict. 24Men do therefore fear him: he respects not any that are wise of heart.
