1 Moreover Yahweh answered Job,

1 וַיַּ֖עַן יְהוָ֥ה אֶת־אִיֹּ֗וב וַיֹּאמַֽר׃

2 "Shall he who argues contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it."

2 הֲ֭רֹב עִם־שַׁדַּ֣י יִסֹּ֑ור מֹוכִ֖יחַ אֱלֹ֣והַּ יַעֲנֶֽנָּה׃

3 Then Job answered Yahweh,

3 וַיַּ֖עַן אִיֹּ֥וב אֶת־יְהוָ֗ה וַיֹּאמַֽר׃

4 "Behold, I am of small account. What shall I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth.

4 הֵ֣ן קַ֭לֹּתִי מָ֣ה אֲשִׁיבֶ֑ךָּ יָ֝דִ֗י שַׂ֣מְתִּי לְמֹו־פִֽי׃

5 I have spoken once, and I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further."

5 אַחַ֣ת דִּ֭בַּרְתִּי וְלֹ֣א אֶֽעֱנֶ֑ה וּ֝שְׁתַּ֗יִם וְלֹ֣א אֹוסִֽיף׃

6 Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind,

6 וַיַּֽעַן־יְהוָ֣ה אֶת־אִ֭יֹּוב מִןm סְעָרָה מִ֥ן׀ סְעָרָ֗ה וַיֹּאמַֽר׃

7 "Now brace yourself like a man. I will question you, and you will answer me.

7 אֱזָר־נָ֣א כְגֶ֣בֶר חֲלָצֶ֑יךָ אֶ֝שְׁאָלְךָ֗ וְהֹודִיעֵֽנִי׃

8 Will you even annul my judgment? Will you condemn me, that you may be justified?

8 הַ֭אַף תָּפֵ֣ר מִשְׁפָּטִ֑י תַּ֝רְשִׁיעֵ֗נִי לְמַ֣עַן תִּצְדָּֽק׃

9 Or have you an arm like God? Can you thunder with a voice like him?

9 וְאִם־זְרֹ֖ועַ כָּאֵ֥ל׀ לָ֑ךְ וּ֝בְקֹ֗ול כָּמֹ֥הוּ תַרְעֵֽם׃

10 "Now deck yourself with excellency and dignity. Array yourself with honor and majesty.

10 עֲדֵ֥ה נָ֣א גָֽאֹ֣ון1 וָגֹ֑בַהּ וְהֹ֖וד וְהָדָ֣ר תִּלְבָּֽשׁ׃

11 Pour forth the fury of your anger. Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low.

11 הָ֭פֵץ עֶבְרֹ֣ות אַפֶּ֑ךָ וּרְאֵ֥ה כָל־גֵּ֝אֶ֗ה וְהַשְׁפִּילֵֽהוּ׃

12 Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him. Crush the wicked in their place.

12 רְאֵ֣ה כָל־גֵּ֭אֶה הַכְנִיעֵ֑הוּ וַהֲדֹ֖ךְ רְשָׁעִ֣ים תַּחְתָּֽם׃

13 Hide them in the dust together. Bind their faces in the hidden place.

13 טָמְנֵ֣ם בֶּעָפָ֣ר יָ֑חַד פְּ֝נֵיהֶ֗ם חֲבֹ֣שׁ בַּטָּמֽוּן׃

14 Then I will also admit to you That your own right hand can save you.

14 וְגַם־אֲנִ֥י אֹודֶ֑ךָּ כִּֽי־תֹושִׁ֖עַ לְךָ֣ יְמִינֶֽךָ׃

15 "See now, behemoth, which I made as well as you. He eats grass as an ox.

15 הִנֵּה־נָ֣א בְ֭הֵמֹות אֲשֶׁר־עָשִׂ֣יתִי עִמָּ֑ךְ חָ֝צִ֗יר כַּבָּקָ֥ר יֹאכֵֽל׃

16 Look now, his strength is in his loins, His force is in the muscles of his belly.

16 הִנֵּה־נָ֣א כֹחֹ֣ו בְמָתְנָ֑יו וְ֝אֹנֹ֗ו בִּשְׁרִירֵ֥י בִטְנֹֽו׃

17 He moves his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together.

17 יַחְפֹּ֣ץ זְנָבֹ֣ו כְמֹו־אָ֑רֶז גִּידֵ֖י פַחֲדֹו פַחֲדָ֣יו יְשֹׂרָֽגוּ׃

18 His bones are like tubes of brass. His limbs are like bars of iron.

18 עֲ֭צָמָיו אֲפִיקֵ֣י נְחוּשָׁ֑ה גְּ֝רָמָ֗יו כִּמְטִ֥יל בַּרְזֶֽל׃

19 He is the chief of the ways of God. He who made him gives him his sword.

19 ה֖וּא רֵאשִׁ֣ית דַּרְכֵי־אֵ֑ל הָ֝עֹשֹׂו3 יַגֵּ֥שׁ חַרְבֹּֽו׃

20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the animals of the field do play.

20 כִּֽי־ב֭וּל3 הָרִ֣ים יִשְׂאוּ־לֹ֑ו וְֽכָל־חַיַּ֥ת הַ֝שָּׂדֶ֗ה יְשַֽׂחֲקוּ־שָֽׁם׃

21 He lies under the lotus trees, In the covert of the reed, and the marsh.

21 תַּֽחַת־צֶאֱלִ֥ים3 יִשְׁכָּ֑ב בְּסֵ֖תֶר קָנֶ֣ה וּבִצָּֽה׃

22 The lotuses cover him with their shade. The willows of the brook surround him.

22 יְסֻכֻּ֣הוּ צֶאֱלִ֣ים צִֽלֲלֹ֑ו יְ֝סֻבּ֗וּהוּ עַרְבֵי־נָֽחַל׃

23 Behold, if a river overflows, he doesn't tremble. He is confident, though the Jordan swells even to his mouth.

23 הֵ֤ן יַעֲשֹׁ֣ק נָ֭הָר לֹ֣א יַחְפֹּ֑וז יִבְטַ֓ח׀ כִּֽי־יָגִ֖יחַ יַרְדֵּ֣ן אֶל־פִּֽיהוּ׃

24 Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare?

24 בְּעֵינָ֥יו יִקָּחֶ֑נּוּ בְּ֝מֹֽוקְשִׁ֗ים יִנְקָב־אָֽף׃
