English Standard Version (ESV)


Job 36:22-37:24

22 Behold, God is exalted in his power;
who is a teacher like him?
23 Who has prescribed for him his way,
or who can say, ‘You have done wrong’?

24 “Remember to extol his work,
of which men have sung.
25 All mankind has looked on it;
man beholds it from afar.
26 Behold, God is great, and we know him not;
the number of his years is unsearchable.
27 For he draws up the drops of water;
they distill his mist in rain,
28 which the skies pour down
and drop on mankind abundantly.
29 Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds,
the thunderings of his pavilion?
30 Behold, he scatters his lightning about him
and covers the roots of the sea.
31 For by these he judges peoples;
he gives food in abundance.
32 He covers his hands with the lightning
and commands it to strike the mark.
33 Its crashing declares his presence;
the cattle also declare that he rises.

37:1 “At this also my heart trembles
and leaps out of its place.
Keep listening to the thunder of his voice
and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
Under the whole heaven he lets it go,
and his lightning to the corners of the earth.
After it his voice roars;
he thunders with his majestic voice,
and he does not restrain the lightnings when his voice is heard.
God thunders wondrously with his voice;
he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth,’
likewise to the downpour, his mighty downpour.
He seals up the hand of every man,
that all men whom he made may know it.
Then the beasts go into their lairs,
and remain in their dens.
From its chamber comes the whirlwind,
and cold from the scattering winds.
10 By the breath of God ice is given,
and the broad waters are frozen fast.
11 He loads the thick cloud with moisture;
the clouds scatter his lightning.
12 They turn around and around by his guidance,
to accomplish all that he commands them
on the face of the habitable world.
13 Whether for correction or for his land
or for love, he causes it to happen.

14 “Hear this, O Job;
stop and consider the wondrous works of God.
15 Do you know how God lays his command upon them
and causes the lightning of his cloud to shine?
16 Do you know the balancings of the clouds,
the wondrous works of him who is perfect in knowledge,
17 you whose garments are hot
when the earth is still because of the south wind?
18 Can you, like him, spread out the skies,
hard as a cast metal mirror?
19 Teach us what we shall say to him;
we cannot draw up our case because of darkness.
20 Shall it be told him that I would speak?
Did a man ever wish that he would be swallowed up?

21 “And now no one looks on the light
when it is bright in the skies,
when the wind has passed and cleared them.
22 Out of the north comes golden splendor;
God is clothed with awesome majesty.
23 The Almighty—we cannot find him;
he is great in power;
justice and abundant righteousness he will not violate.
24 Therefore men fear him;
he does not regard any who are wise in their own conceit.”

Matthew 12:9-21

He went on from there and entered their synagogue. 10 And a man was there with a withered hand. And they asked him, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”—so that they might accuse him. 11 He said to them, “Which one of you who has a sheep, if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not take hold of it and lift it out? 12 Of how much more value is a man than a sheep! So it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.” 13 Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And the man stretched it out, and it was restored, healthy like the other. 14 But the Pharisees went out and conspired against him, how to destroy him.

15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all 16 and ordered them not to make him known. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:

18 “Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
I will put my Spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
19 He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
20 a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory;
21 and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”


King James Version (KJV)


Job 36:22-37:24

36:22Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him? 36:23Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity? 36:24Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold. 36:25Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off. 36:26Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out. 36:27For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof: 36:28Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly. 36:29Also can any understand the spreadings of the clouds, or the noise of his tabernacle? 36:30Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea. 36:31For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance. 36:32With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt. 36:33The noise thereof showeth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour.

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.

Matthew 12:9-21

9And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:10And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.11And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?12How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.13Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.14Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.15But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;16And charged them that they should not make him known:17That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,18Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles.19He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.20A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.21And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
