Job 37:1-18

My heart pounds at this
and leaps from my chest. Just listen to His thunderous voice
and the rumbling that comes from His mouth. He lets it loose beneath the entire sky;
His lightning to the ends of the earth.read more.
Then there comes a roaring sound;
God thunders with His majestic voice.
He does not restrain the lightning
when His rumbling voice is heard. God thunders marvelously with His voice;
He does great things that we cannot comprehend. For He says to the snow, “Fall to the earth,”
and the torrential rains, His mighty torrential rains, serve as His sign to all mankind,
so that all men may know His work. 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? You whose clothes get hot
when the south wind brings calm to the land, can you help God spread out the skies
as hard as a cast metal mirror?

the number of His years cannot be counted. For He makes waterdrops evaporate;

and shower abundantly on mankind.read more.
Can anyone understand how the clouds spread out
or how the thunder roars from God’s pavilion? See how He spreads His lightning around Him
and covers the depths of the sea. For He judges the nations with these;
He gives food in abundance. He covers His hands with lightning
and commands it to hit its mark. The thunder declares His presence;
the cattle also, the approaching storm.

Job 38:22-30

Have you entered the place where the snow is stored?
Or have you seen the storehouses of hail, which I hold in reserve for times of trouble,
for the day of warfare and battle? What road leads to the place where light is dispersed?
Where is the source of the east wind that spreads across the earth?read more.
Who cuts a channel for the flooding rain
or clears the way for lightning, to bring rain on an uninhabited land,
on a desert with no human life, to satisfy the parched wasteland
and cause the grass to sprout? Does the rain have a father?
Who fathered the drops of dew? Whose womb did the ice come from?
Who gave birth to the frost of heaven when water becomes as hard as stone,
and the surface of the watery depths is frozen?

He is always watching over it from the beginning to the end of the year.read more.
