Job 38:12 "Have you commanded the morning in your days, and caused the dawn to know its place;

Job 38:22 Have you entered the treasuries of the snow, or have you seen the treasures of the hail,
Job 38:23 which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
Job 38:24 By what way is the lightning distributed, or the east wind scattered on the earth?
Job 38:25 Who has cut a channel for the flood water, or the path for the thunderstorm;
Job 38:26 To cause it to rain on a land where no man is; on the wilderness, in which there is no man;
Job 38:27 to satisfy the waste and desolate ground, to cause the tender grass to spring forth?
Job 38:28 Does the rain have a father? Or who fathers the drops of dew?
Job 38:29 Out of whose womb came the ice? The gray frost of the sky, who has given birth to it?
Job 38:30 The waters become hard like stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen.

Job 39:17 because God has deprived her of wisdom, neither has he imparted to her understanding.
Job 39:18 When she lifts up herself on high, she scorns the horse and his rider.
Job 39:19 "Have you given the horse might? Have you clothed his neck with a quivering mane?

Job 39:29 From there he spies out the prey. His eyes see it afar off.
Job 39:30 His young ones also suck up blood. Where the slain are, there he is."
Job 40:1 Moreover Yahweh answered Job,
Job 40:2 "Shall he who argues contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it."
Job 40:3 Then Job answered Yahweh,
Job 40:4 "Behold, I am of small account. What shall I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth.
Job 40:5 I have spoken once, and I will not answer; Yes, twice, but I will proceed no further."
Job 40:6 Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind,
Job 40:7 "Now brace yourself like a man. I will question you, and you will answer me.
Job 40:8 Will you even annul my judgment? Will you condemn me, that you may be justified?
Job 40:9 Or do you have an arm like God? Can you thunder with a voice like him?

Job 40:14 Then I will also admit to you that your own right hand can save you.
Job 40:15 "See now, behemoth, which I made as well as you. He eats grass as an ox.

Job 40:23 Behold, if a river overflows, he doesn't tremble. He is confident, though the Jordan swells even to his mouth.
Job 40:24 Shall any take him when he is on the watch, or pierce through his nose with a snare?
Job 41:1 "Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook, or press down his tongue with a cord?
Job 41:2 Can you put a rope into his nose, or pierce his jaw through with a hook?
Job 41:3 Will he make many petitions to you, or will he speak soft words to you?
Job 41:4 Will he make a covenant with you, that you should take him for a servant forever?
Job 41:5 Will you play with him as with a bird? Or will you bind him for your girls?

Job 41:18 His sneezing flashes out light. His eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.
Job 41:19 Out of his mouth go burning torches. Sparks of fire leap forth.
Job 41:20 Out of his nostrils a smoke goes, as of a boiling pot over a fire of reeds.
Job 41:21 His breath kindles coals. A flame goes forth from his mouth.
Job 41:22 There is strength in his neck. Terror dances before him.
Job 41:23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together. They are firm on him. They can't be moved.
Job 41:24 His heart is as firm as a stone, yes, firm as the lower millstone.
Job 41:25 When he raises himself up, the mighty are afraid. They retreat before his thrashing.
Job 41:26 If one attacks him with the sword, it can't prevail; nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft.
Job 41:27 He counts iron as straw; and brass as rotten wood.
Job 41:28 The arrow can't make him flee. Sling stones are like chaff to him.
Job 41:29 Clubs are counted as stubble. He laughs at the rushing of the javelin.
Job 41:30 His undersides are like sharp potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge.
Job 41:31 He makes the deep to boil like a pot. He makes the sea like a pot of ointment.
Job 41:32 He makes a path shine after him. One would think the deep had white hair.
Job 41:33 On earth there is not his equal, that is made without fear.
Job 41:34 He sees everything that is high. He is king over all the sons of pride."
Job 42:1 Then Job answered Yahweh,
Job 42:2 "I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be restrained.
Job 42:3 You asked, 'Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?' therefore I have uttered that which I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I didn't know.
Job 42:4 You said, 'Listen, now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you will answer me.'
Job 42:5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you.
Job 42:6 Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes."
Job 42:7 It was so, that after Yahweh had spoken these words to Job, Yahweh said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you, and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job has.
Job 42:8 Now therefore, take to yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept him, that I not deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job has."
Job 42:9 So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did what Yahweh commanded them, and Yahweh accepted Job.
Job 42:10 Yahweh turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends. Yahweh gave Job twice as much as he had before.
Job 42:11 Then came there to him all his brothers, and all his sisters, and all those who had been of his acquaintance before, and ate bread with him in his house. They comforted him, and consoled him concerning all the evil that Yahweh had brought on him. Everyone also gave him a piece of money, and everyone a ring of gold.
Job 42:12 So Yahweh blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand female donkeys.
Job 42:13 He had also seven sons and three daughters.
Job 42:14 He called the name of the first, Jemimah; and the name of the second, Keziah; and the name of the third, Keren Happuch.
Job 42:15 In all the land were no women found so beautiful as the daughters of Job. Their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.
Job 42:16 After this Job lived one hundred forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons' sons, to four generations.
Job 42:17 So Job died, being old and full of days.




The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.

The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.
