Unsearchable

“With whose help have you uttered
words,
and whose breath has come out
from you?
The dead tremble
under the waters and their
inhabitants.
Sheol is naked before God,
and Abaddon has no covering.
He stretches out the north over the
void
and hangs the earth on nothing.
He binds up the waters in his thick
clouds,
and the cloud is not split open under
them.
He covers the face of the full moon
and spreads over it his cloud.
He has inscribed a circle on the face of
the waters
at the boundary between light and darkness.
The pillars of heaven tremble
and are astounded at his rebuke.
By his power he stilled the sea;
by his understanding he shattered
Rahab.
By his wind the heavens were made
fair;
his hand pierced the fleeing
serpent.
Behold, those are but the outskirts of
his ways,
and how small a whisper do we hear
of him!
But the thunder of his power who
can understand?”

Job 26:4-14
