Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

11:7Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?

11:8It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?

11:9The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.

15:8Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?

37:1At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place.

37:2Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth.

37:3He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth.

37:4After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.

37:5God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.

37:6For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.

37:7He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

37:8Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.

37:9Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

37:10By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

37:11Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:

37:12And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.

37:13He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

37:14Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

37:15Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

37:16Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

37:17How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?

37:18Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?

37:19Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.

37:20Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.

37:21And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.

37:22Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.

37:23Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.

37:24Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

40:12Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

40:13Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?

40:14With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?

40:15Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.

40:16And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

40:17All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

40:18To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?

40:19The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains.

40:20He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved.

40:21Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?

40:22It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

40:23That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

40:24Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

40:25To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

40:26Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

40:27Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?

40:28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

40:29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

40:30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

40:31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

55:8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

55:9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

2:16For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
