KJV JOB40 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB39.htm JOB41.htm
40:1 Moreover the LORD [H3068] answered [H6030] Job [H347] , and said [H559] ,
40:2 Shall he that contendeth [H7378] with the Almighty [H7706] instruct [H3250] [him]? he that reproveth [H3198] God [H433] , let him answer [H6030] it.
40:3 Then Job [H347] answered [H6030] the LORD [H3068] , and said [H559] ,
40:4 Behold, I am vile [H7043] ; what shall I answer [H7725] thee? I will lay [H7760] mine hand [H3027] upon [H3926] my mouth [H6310] .
40:5 Once [H259] have I spoken [H1696] ; but I will not answer [H6030] : yea, twice [H8147] ; but I will proceed no further [H3254] .
40:6 Then answered [H6030] the LORD [H3068] unto Job [H347] out of the whirlwind [H5591] , and said [H559] ,
40:7 Gird up [H247] thy loins [H2504] now like a man [H1397] : I will demand [H7592] of thee, and declare [H3045] thou unto me.
40:8 Wilt thou also disannul [H6565] my judgment [H4941] ? wilt thou condemn [H7561] me, that thou mayest be righteous [H6663] ?
40:9 Hast thou an arm [H2220] like God [H410] ? or canst thou thunder [H7481] with a voice [H6963] like him?
40:10 Deck [H5710] thyself now [with] majesty [H1347] and excellency [H1363] ; and array [H3847] thyself with glory [H1935] and beauty [H1926] .
40:11 Cast abroad [H6327] the rage [H5678] of thy wrath [H639] : and behold [H7200] every one [that is] proud [H1343] , and abase [H8213] him.
40:12 Look [H7200] on every one [that is] proud [H1343] , [and] bring him low [H3665] ; and tread down [H1915] the wicked [H7563] in their place.
40:13 Hide [H2934] them in the dust [H6083] together [H3162] ; [and] bind [H2280] their faces [H6440] in secret [H2934] .
40:14 Then will I also confess [H3034] unto thee that thine own right hand [H3225] can save [H3467] thee.
40:15 Behold now behemoth [H930] , which I made [H6213] with thee; he eateth [H398] grass [H2682] as an ox [H1241] .(behemoth: or the Elephant as some think)
40:16 Lo now, his strength [H3581] [is] in his loins [H4975] , and his force [H202] [is] in the navel [H8306] of his belly [H990] .
40:17 He moveth [H2654] his tail [H2180] like a cedar [H730] : the sinews [H1517] of his stones [H6344] are wrapped together [H8276] .(He: or, He setteth up)
40:18 His bones [H6106] [are as] strong [H650] pieces of brass [H5154] ; his bones [H1634] [are] like bars [H4300] of iron [H1270] .
40:19 He [is] the chief [H7225] of the ways [H1870] of God [H410] : he that made [H6213] him can make [H5066] his sword [H2719] to approach [H5066] [unto him].
40:20 Surely the mountains [H2022] bring him forth [H5375] food [H944] , where all the beasts [H2416] of the field [H7704] play [H7832] .
40:21 He lieth [H7901] under the shady trees [H6628] , in the covert [H5643] of the reed [H7070] , and fens [H1207] .
40:22 The shady trees [H6628] cover [H5526] him [with] their shadow [H6752] ; the willows [H6155] of the brook [H5158] compass him about [H5437] .
40:23 Behold, he drinketh up [H6231] a river [H5104] , [and] hasteth [H2648] not: he trusteth [H982] that he can draw up [H1518] Jordan [H3383] into his mouth [H6310] .(he drinketh up: Heb. he oppresseth)
40:24 He taketh [H3947] it with his eyes [H5869] : [his] nose [H639] pierceth through [H5344] snares [H4170] .(He: or, Will any take him in his sight, or, bore his nose with a gin?)
