Job 26:8
Context
Job: who Can Understand God's Majesty

1But Job answered and said, 2How have you helped him that is without power? how save you the arm that has no strength? 3How have you counceled him that has no wisdom? and how have you plentifully declared the thing as it is? 4To whom have you uttered words? and whose spirit came from you? 5Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof. 6Hell is naked before him, and destruction has no covering. 7He stretches out the north over the empty place, and hangs the earth on nothing. 8He binds up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. 9He holds back the face of his throne, and spreads his cloud on it. 10He has compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end. 11The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof. 12He divides the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smites through the proud. 13By his spirit he has garnished the heavens; his hand has formed the crooked serpent. 14See, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
