Job 38 [30.] The waters become hard like stone,
when the surface of the deep is frozen.
“Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades,
or loosen the cords of Orion?
Can you lead the constellations out in their season?
Or can you guide the Bear with her cubs?
Do you know the laws of the heavens?
Can you establish its dominion over the earth?
“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds,
That abundance of waters may cover you?
Can you send out lightnings, that they may go?
Do they report to you, ‘Here we are?’
Who has put wisdom in the inward parts?
Or who has given understanding to the mind?
Who can number the clouds by wisdom?
Or who can pour out the bottles of the sky,
when the dust runs into a mass,
and the clods of earth stick together?
“Can you hunt the prey for the lioness,
or satisfy the appetite of the young lions,
Job 38 [40.] when they crouch in their dens,
and lie in wait in the thicket?
Who provides for the raven his prey,
when his young ones cry to God,
and wander for lack of food?
