The wild animals enter [their] lairs and stay in their dens. The windstorm comes from its chamber, and the cold from the driving north winds. Ice is formed by the breath of God, and watery expanses are frozen. He saturates clouds with moisture; He scatters His lightning through them. They swirl about, turning round and round at His direction, accomplishing everything He commands them over the surface of the inhabited world. He causes this to happen for punishment, for His land, or for His faithful love. Listen to this, Job. Stop and consider God's wonders. Do you know how God directs His clouds or makes their lightning flash? Do you understand how the clouds float, those wonderful works of Him who has perfect knowledge?

Now men cannot [even] look at the sun when it is in the skies, after a wind has swept through and cleared them away. Yet out of the north He comes, [shrouded] in a golden [glow]; awesome majesty surrounds Him. The Almighty-we cannot reach Him- He is exalted in power! In His justice and righteousness, He will not oppress.
