Job's Reply to Bildad You Have Really Been Helpful 26 1Job said: 2You have really been helpful to someone weak and weary. 3You have given great advice and wonderful wisdom to someone truly in need. 4How can anyone possibly speak with such understanding? 5Remember the terrible trembling of those in the world of the dead below the mighty ocean. 6Nothing in that land of death and destruction is hidden from God, 7who hung the northern sky and suspended the earth on empty space. 8God stores water in clouds, but they don't burst, 9and he wraps them around the face of the moon. 10On the surface of the ocean, God has drawn a boundary line between light and darkness. 11And columns supporting the sky tremble at his command. 12By his power and wisdom, God conquered the force of the mighty ocean.[D] 13The heavens became bright when he breathed, and the escaping sea monster[E] died at his hands. 14These things are merely a whisper of God's power at work. How little we would understand if this whisper ever turned into thunder!
