1 At this also my heart is troubled, and moved out of its place. 2 Hear thou a report by the anger of the Lord’s wrath, and a discourse shall come out of his mouth. 3 His dominion is under the whole heaven, and his light is at the extremities of the earth. 4 After him shall be a cry with a [loud] voice; he shall thunder with the voice of his excellency, yet he shall not cause men to pass away, for one shall hear his voice. 5 The Mighty One shall thunder wonderfully with his voice: for he has done great things which we knew not; 6 commanding the snow, Be thou upon the earth, and the stormy rain, and the storm of the showers of his might. 7 He seals up the hand of every man, that every man may know his own weakness. 8 And the wild beasts come in under the covert, and rest in [their] lair. 9 Troubles come on out of the secret chambers, and cold from the mountain-tops. 10 And from the breath of the Mighty One he will send frost; and he guides the water in whatever way he pleases. 11 And [if] a cloud obscures [what is] precious [to him], his light will disperse the cloud. 12 And he will carry round the encircling [clouds] by his governance, to [perform] their works: whatsoever he shall command them, 13 this has been appointed by him on the earth, whether for correction, [or] for his land, or if he shall find him [an object] for mercy. 14 Hearken to this, O Job: stand still, and be admonished of the power of the Lord. 15 We know that God has disposed his works, having made light out of darkness. 16 And he knows the divisions of the clouds, and the signal overthrows of the ungodly. 17 But thy robe is warm, and there is quiet upon the land. 18 Wilt thou establish with him [foundations] for the ancient [heavens? they are] strong as a molten mirror. 19 Wherefore teach me, what shall we say to him? and let us cease from saying much. 20 Have I a book or a scribe by me, that I may stand and put man to silence? 21 But the light is not visible to all: it shines afar off in the heavens, as that which is from him in the clouds. 22 From the [north] come the clouds shining like gold: in these great are the glory and honour of the Almighty; 23 and we do not find another his equal in strength: [as for] him that judges justly, dost thou not think that he listens? 24 Wherefore men shall fear him; and the wise also in heart shall fear him. ΚΑΙ ἀπὸ ταύτης ἐταράχθη ἡ καρδία μου καὶ ἀπερρύη ἐκ τοῦ τόπου αὐτῆς. 2 ἄκουε ἀκοὴν ἐν ὀργῇ θυμοῦ Κυρίου, καὶ μελέτη ἐκ στόματος αὐτοῦ ἐξελεύσεται. 3 ὑποκάτω παντὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἡ ἀρχὴ αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὸ φῶς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ πτερύγων τῆς γῆς. 4 ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ βοήσεται φωνῇ, βροντήσει ἐν φωνῇ ὕβρεως αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἀνταλλάξει αὐτούς, ὅτι ἀκούσει φωνὴν αὐτοῦ. 5 βροντήσει ὁ ἰσχυρὸς ἐν φωνῇ αὐτοῦ θαυμάσια· ἐποίησε γὰρ μεγάλα ἃ οὐκ ᾔδειμεν, 6 συντάσσων χιόνι· γίνου ἐπὶ γῆς, καὶ χειμὼν ὑετός, καὶ χειμὼν ὑετῶν δυναστείας αὐτοῦ. 7 ἐν χειρὶ παντὸς ἀνθρώπου κατασφραγίζει, ἵνα γνῷ πᾶς ἄνθρωπος τὴν ἑαυτοῦ ἀσθένειαν. 8 εἰσῆλθε δὲ θηρία ὑπὸ τὴν σκέπην, ἡσύχασαν δὲ ἐπὶ κοίτης. 9 ἐκ ταμιείων ἐπέρχονται ὀδύναι, ἀπὸ δὲ ἀκρωτηρίων ψῦχος, 10 καὶ ἀπὸ πνοῆς ἰσχυροῦ δώσει πάγος, οἰακίζει δὲ τὸ ὕδωρ ὡς ἐὰν βούληται· 11 καὶ ἐκλεκτὸν καταπλάσσει νεφέλη, διασκορπιεῖ νέφος φῶς αὐτοῦ. 12 καὶ αὐτὸς κυκλώματα διαστρέψει, ἐν θεεβουλαθὼθ εἰς ἔργα αὐτῶν. πάντα ὅσα ἂν ἐντείληται αὐτοῖς, ταῦτα συντέτακται παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, 13 ἐὰν εἰς παιδείαν, ἐὰν εἰς τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ, ἐὰν εἰς ἔλεος εὑρήσει αὐτόν. 14 ἐνωτίζου ταῦτα, ᾿Ιώβ· στῆθι νουθετούμενος δύναμιν Κυρίου. 15 οἴδαμεν ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς ἔθετο ἔργα αὐτοῦ φῶς ποιήσας ἐκ σκότους. 16 ἐπίσταται δὲ διάκρισιν νεφῶν, ἐξαίσια δὲ πτώματα πονηρῶν. 17 σοῦ δὲ ἡ στολὴ θερμή, ἡσυχάζεται δὲ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς. 18 στερεώσεις μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ εἰς παλαιώματα, ἰσχυραὶ ὡς ὅρασις ἐπιχύσεως. 19 διατί; δίδαξόν με, τί ἐροῦμεν αὐτῷ· καὶ παυσώμαθε πολλὰ λέγοντες. 20 μὴ βίβλος ἢ γραμματεύς μοι παρέστηκεν, ἵνα ἄνθρωπον ἑστηκὼς κατασιωπήσω; 21 πᾶσι δὲ οὐχ ὁρατὸν τὸ φῶς, τηλαυγές ἐστιν ἐν τοῖς παλαιώμασιν, ὥσπερ τὸ παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ νεφῶν. 22 ἀπὸ βορρᾶ νέφη χρυσαυγοῦντα· ἐπὶ τούτοις μεγάλη ἡ δόξα καὶ τιμὴ Παντοκράτορος. 23 καὶ οὐχ εὑρίσκομεν ἄλλον ὅμοιον τῇ ἰσχύϊ αὐτοῦ· ὁ τὰ δίκαια κρίνων, οὐκ οἴει ἐπακούειν αὐτόν; 24 διὸ φοβηθήσονται αὐτὸν οἱ ἄνθρωποι, φοβηθήσονται δὲ αὐτὸν καὶ οἱ σοφοὶ καρδίᾳ.
