Excellence and Majesty - Job 40

Job 40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,  

Job 40:2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct  him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.  

Job 40:3 Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 

Job 40:4  Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine  hand upon my mouth. 

Job 40:5 Once have I spoken; but I will  not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.  

Job 40:6 Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the  whirlwind, and said, 

Job 40:7 Gird up thy loins now like a  man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.  

Job 40:8 Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou  condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous? 

Job 40:9 Hast  thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice  like him? 

Job 40:10 Deck thyself now with majesty and  excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.  


Job 40:11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold  every one that is proud, and abase him. 

Job 40:12 Look on  every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread  down the wicked in their place. 

Job 40:13 Hide them in the  dust together; and bind their faces in secret. 

Job 40:14 Then  will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can  save thee.  

Job 40:15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee;  he eateth grass as an ox. 

Job 40:16 Lo now, his strength is  in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.  

Job 40:17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his  stones are wrapped together. 

Job 40:18 His bones are as  strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.  

Job 40:19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made  him can make his sword to 
approach unto him. 

Job 40:20  Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the  beasts of the field play. 

Job 40:21 He lieth under the shady  trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. 

Job 40:22 The shady  trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the  brook compass him about. 

Job 40:23 Behold, he drinketh up a  river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up  Jordan into his mouth. 

Job 40:24 He taketh it with his eyes:  his nose pierceth through snares.  KJV
