1 But Job answered and said, 2 To whom dost thou attach thyself, or whom art thou going to assist? is it not he that [has] much strength, and [he] who has a strong arm? 3 To whom hast thou given counsel? is it not to him who has all wisdom? whom wilt thou follow? is it not one who has the greatest power? 4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose breath is it that has come forth from thee? 5 Shall giants be born from under the water and the inhabitants thereof? 6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction has no covering. 7 He stretches out the north wind upon nothing, and he upon nothing hangs the earth; 8 binding water in his clouds, and the cloud is not rent under it. 9 He keeps back the face of his throne, stretching out his cloud upon it. 10 He has encompassed the face of the water by an appointed ordinance, until the end of light and darkness. 11 The pillars of heaven are prostrate and astonished at his rebuke. 12 He has calmed the sea with [his] might, and by [his] wisdom the whale has been overthrown. 13 And the barriers of heaven fear him, and by a command he has slain the apostate dragon. 14 Behold, these are parts of his way; and we will hearken to him at the least intimation of his word: but the strength of his thunder who knows, when he shall employ [it]? ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ ᾿Ιὼβ λέγει· 2 τίνι πρόσκεισαι ἢ τίνι μέλλεις βοηθεῖν; πότερον, οὐχ ᾧ πολλὴ ἰσχὺς καὶ ᾧ βραχίων κραταιός ἐστι; 3 τίνι συμβεβούλευσαι; οὐχ ᾧ πᾶσα σοφία; τίνι ἐπακολουθήσεις; οὐχ ᾧ μεγίστη δύναμις; 4 τίνι ἀνήγγειλας ῥήματα; πνοὴ δὲ τίνος ἐστὶν ἡ ἐλθοῦσα ἐκ σοῦ; 5 μὴ γίγαντες μαιωθήσονται ὑποκάτωθεν ὕδατος καὶ τῶν γειτόνων αὐτοῦ; 6 γυμνὸς ὁ ᾅδης ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔστι περιβόλαιον τῇ ἀπωλείᾳ. 7 ἐκτείνων βορέαν ἐπ᾿ οὐδέν, κρεμάζων γῆν ἐπὶ οὐδενός· 8 δεσμεύων ὕδωρ ἐν νεφέλαις αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἐρράγη νέφος ὑποκάτω αὐτοῦ· 9 ὁ κρατῶν πρόσωπον θρόνου, ἐκπετάζων ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν νέφος αὐτοῦ. 10 πρόσταγμα ἐγύρωσεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ὕδατος μέχρι συντελείας φωτὸς μετὰ σκότους. 11 στῦλοι οὐρανοῦ ἐπετάσθησαν καὶ ἐξέστησαν ἀπὸ τῆς ἐπιτιμήσεως αὐτοῦ. 12 ἰσχύϊ κατέπαυσε τὴν θάλασσαν, ἐπιστήμῃ δὲ ἔστρωσε τὸ κῆτος· 13 κλεῖθρα δὲ οὐρανοῦ δεδοίκασιν αὐτόν, προστάγματι δὲ ἐθανάτωσε δράκοντα ἀποστάτην. 14 ἰδοὺ ταῦτα μέρη ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπὶ ἰκμάδα λόγου ἀκουσόμεθα ἐν αὐτῷ· σθένος δὲ βροντῆς αὐτοῦ τίς οἶδεν ὁπότε ποιήσει;
