Job 26 Living Bible (TLB)

26 Job’s reply:

“What wonderful helpers you all are! And how you have encouraged me in my great need! How you have enlightened my stupidity! What wise things you have said! How did you ever think of all these brilliant comments?

5-6 “The dead stand naked, trembling before God in the place where they go. God stretches out heaven over empty space and hangs the earth upon nothing. He wraps the rain in his thick clouds, and the clouds are not split by the weight. He shrouds his throne with his clouds. 10 He sets a boundary for the ocean, yes, and a boundary for the day and for the night. 11 The pillars of heaven tremble at his rebuke. 12 And by his power the sea grows calm; he is skilled at crushing its pride! 13 The heavens are made beautiful by his Spirit;[a] he pierces the swiftly gliding serpent.

14 “These are some of the minor things he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who then can withstand his thunder?”


  1. Job 26:13 The heavens are made beautiful by his Spirit, or “The bars of heaven are afraid of him”; see v. 11.
