God to be feared above his works


37:1 At this my heart
also trembles, and is moved out of its place.
37:2 Hear [and] understand the sound of His voice, and the rumbling that comes out of his mouth.
37:3 He directed it under the whole heavens, and His lightning to the corners of the earth.
37:4 After it a voice roars: He thunders with the voice of his excellency; and he will not hold back them when His voice is heard.

37:6 Because he says to the snow, fall on the earth; also to the rain shower, and to the strong rains.
37:7 He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know His work.
37:8 Then the beasts go to dens, and stay in their den.
37:9 Out of the inner chamber emerges the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

frost is given: and the width of the waters is frozen.
37:11 Also by watering He burdens the thick cloud: He dispersed His light cloud:
37:12 And it is turned round about by His guidance: that they may do whatever He commands them upon the face of the inhabited
earth.
37:13 It comes, whether for correction, or for His land, or for mercy He finds it.
37:14 Listen to this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wonderful works of EL אֵל
