Great Verses from Job!

"For the ear tests words as the tongue tastes food.  Let us discern for ourselves what is right; let us learn together what is good."
(Job 34:3-4)

"..If He hides His face, who can see Him?  Yet He is over man and nation alike, to keep a godless man from ruling, from laying snares for the people."  (Job 34:29-30)

"The godless in heart harbor resentment..." (Job 36:13)

"He is wooing you from the jaws of distress to a spacious place free from restriction, to the comfort of your table laden with choice food." (Job 36:16)

"He fills his hands with lightning and commands it to strike its mark." (Job 36:32)

"He loads the clouds with moisture; He scatters His lightning through them.  At his direction they swirl around the face of the whole earth to do whatever He commands them.  He bring the clouds to punish men, or to water His earth and show His love."  (Job 37:11-13)

"Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God's wonders.  Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes His lightning flash?  Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of Him who is perfect in knowledge?"  (Job 37:14-16)

"Who can tip over the water jars of the heavens when the dust becomes hard and the clods of earth stick together?"  (Job 38:37-38)

"Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane?  Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting?  He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray.  He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword.  The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance.  In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.  At the blast of the trumpet he snorts, 'Aha!'  He catches the scent of battle from afar, the shout of commanders and the battle cry." (Job 39:19-25)
