THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

5:8I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause:

5:9Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:

5:10Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:

5:11To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

5:12He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.

5:13He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.

5:14They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night.

5:15But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.

5:16So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.

5:17Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty:

5:18For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

5:19He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.

5:20In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.

9:2I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?

9:3If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.

9:4He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered?

9:5Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.

9:6Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

9:7Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.

9:8Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.

9:9Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

9:10Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

9:11Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.

9:12Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou?

9:13If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.

9:14How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him?

9:15Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge.

9:16If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.

9:17For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.

9:18He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.

9:19If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead?

9:20If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.

9:21Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.

9:22This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.

9:23If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.

9:24The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

9:25Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.

9:26They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.

9:27If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself:

9:28I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.

9:29If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?

9:30If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;

9:31Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me.

9:32For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.

9:33Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.

9:34Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me:

9:35Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me.

10:2I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.

10:3Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?

10:4Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?

10:5Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man's days,

10:6That thou enquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?

10:7Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.

10:8Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.

10:9Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

10:10Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?

10:11Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

10:12Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

10:13And these things hast thou hid in thine heart: I know that this is with thee.

10:14If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.

10:15If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction;

10:16For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.

10:17Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.

10:18Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!

12:7But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:

12:8Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.

12:9Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?

12:10In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

12:11Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?

12:12With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.

12:13With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.

12:14Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.

12:15Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.

12:16With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his.

12:17He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools.

12:18He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.

12:19He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.

12:20He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged.

26:7He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

26:8He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

26:9He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

26:10He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

26:11The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

26:12He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

26:13By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

26:14Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

33:12Behold, in this thou art not just: I will answer thee, that God is greater than man.

33:13Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.

33:14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

33:15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

33:16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

33:17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

33:18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

33:19He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

33:20So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.

33:21His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

33:22Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

33:23If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:

33:24Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

33:25His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:

33:26He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

33:27He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

33:28He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

33:29Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

33:30To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

34:10Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.

34:11For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

34:12Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.

34:13Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath disposed the whole world?

34:14If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;

34:15All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust.

34:16If now thou hast understanding, hear this: hearken to the voice of my words.

34:17Shall even he that hateth right govern? and wilt thou condemn him that is most just?

34:18Is it fit to say to a king, Thou art wicked? and to princes, Ye are ungodly?

34:19How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.

34:20In a moment shall they die, and the people shall be troubled at midnight, and pass away: and the mighty shall be taken away without hand.

34:21For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings.

34:22There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

34:23For he will not lay upon man more than right; that he should enter into judgment with God.

34:24He shall break in pieces mighty men without number, and set others in their stead.

34:25Therefore he knoweth their works, and he overturneth them in the night, so that they are destroyed.

34:26He striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others;

34:27Because they turned back from him, and would not consider any of his ways:

34:28So that they cause the cry of the poor to come unto him, and he heareth the cry of the afflicted.

34:29When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only:

34:30That the hypocrite reign not, lest the people be ensnared.

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.

38:1Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

38:2Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?

38:3Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

38:4Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

38:5Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

38:6Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

38:7When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

38:8Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?

38:9When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,

38:10And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,

38:11And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

38:12Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;

38:13That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

38:14It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.

38:15And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.

38:16Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?

38:17Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?

38:18Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.

38:19Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,

38:20That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?

38:21Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?

38:22Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,

38:23Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

38:24By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?

38:25Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;

38:26To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;

38:27To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?

38:28Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?

38:29Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?

38:30The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

38:31Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

38:32Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?

38:33Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

38:34Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?

38:35Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?

38:36Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

38:37Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,

38:38When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?

38:39Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,

38:40When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?

38:41Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

39:1Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?

39:2Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?

39:3They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.

39:4Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.

39:5Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

39:6Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

39:7He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.

39:8The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.

39:9Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

39:10Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

39:11Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

39:12Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?

39:13Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?

39:14Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

39:15And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.

39:16She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;

39:17Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

39:18What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.

39:19Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?

39:20Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.

39:21He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.

39:22He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.

39:23The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.

39:24He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.

39:25He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

39:26Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?

39:27Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

39:28She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.

39:29From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

39:30Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.

40:1Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,

40:2Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.

40:3Then Job answered the LORD, and said,

40:4Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.

40:5Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.

40:6Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

40:7Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.

40:8Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?

40:9Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?

40:10Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.

40:11Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him.

40:12Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.

40:13Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret.

40:14Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.

40:15Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.

40:16Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.

40:17He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.

40:18His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron.

40:19He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him.

40:20Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play.

40:21He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.

40:22The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.

40:23Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.

40:24He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

41:1Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?

41:2Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?

41:3Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?

41:4Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?

41:5Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

41:6Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

41:7Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

41:8Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.

41:9Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?

41:10None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?

41:11Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

41:12I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.

41:13Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?

41:14Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about.

41:15His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.

41:16One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.

41:17They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.

41:18By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

41:19Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.

41:20Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.

41:21His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

41:22In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.

41:23The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved.

41:24His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.

41:25When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.

41:26The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.

41:27He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.

41:28The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble.

41:29Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.

41:30Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire.

41:31He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.

41:32He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.

41:33Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.

41:34He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.

42:1Then Job answered the LORD, and said,

42:2I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.

42:3Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.

42:4Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.

42:5I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.

42:6Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

8:3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

8:4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

8:5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

8:6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

97:6The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

104:1Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

104:2Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

104:3Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

104:4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

104:5Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

104:6Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

104:7At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

104:8They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

104:9Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

104:10He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

104:11They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

104:12By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

104:13He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

104:14He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

104:15And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.

104:16The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;

104:19He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

104:20Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

104:22The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.

104:23Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

104:24O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

104:25So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

104:26There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

104:27These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

104:28That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

104:29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

104:30Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

104:31The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.

104:32He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

107:23They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

107:24These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

107:25For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

107:26They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

119:91They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.

135:6Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.

135:7He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.

147:15He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

147:16He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

147:17He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?

147:18He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.

148:3Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

148:4Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

148:5Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

148:6He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.

50:2Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.

50:3I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.

64:3When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.

33:21Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.

33:25Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;

33:26Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.
