You Have Really Been Helpful
26
1 Job said:
26 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 But Job answered and said,
2 You have really been helpful
to someone weak and weary.
2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?
3 You have given great advice
and wonderful wisdom
to someone truly in need.
3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?
4 How can anyone possibly speak
with such understanding?
4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?

5 Remember the terrible trembling
of those in the world of the dead
below the mighty ocean.
5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.
and the...: or, with the inhabitants
6 Nothing in that land
of death and destruction
is hidden from God,
6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
7 who hung the northern sky
and suspended the earth
on empty space.
7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
8 God stores water in clouds,
but they don't burst,
8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.
9 and he wraps them around
the face of the moon.
9 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.
10 On the surface of the ocean,
God has drawn a boundary line
between light and darkness.
10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
until...: Heb. until the end of light with darkness
11 And columns supporting the sky
tremble at his command.
11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

12 By his power and wisdom,
God conquered the force
of the mighty ocean.
c 26.12 the force of the mighty ocean: The Hebrew text has “the ocean ... Rahab.” In this passage the sea monster Rahab stands for the fearsome power of the ocean (see the notes at 3.8 and 9.13).
12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.
the proud: Heb. pride
13 The heavens became bright
when he breathed,
and the escaping sea monster
d 26.13 sea monster: The Hebrew text has “snake,” which probably stands for some kind of fearsome sea monster, such as Leviathan (see Isaiah 27.1).
died at the hands of God.
13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
14 These things are merely a whisper
of God's power at work.
How little we would understand
if this whisper
ever turned into thunder!
14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
