God Answering Job Out of the Whirlwind by William Blake

Job 31: 35-37; 38: 1-11, 25-27

Oh, that I had someone to hear me!
    Here’s my signature;
    let the Almighty respond,
    and let my accuser write an indictment.
36 Surely I would bear it on my shoulder,
    tie it around me like a wreath.
37 I would give him an account of my steps,
    approach him like a prince.

38 Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind:
2 Who is this darkening counsel
    with words lacking knowledge?
3 Prepare yourself like a man;
    I will interrogate you, and you will respond to me.
4 Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundations?
    Tell me if you know.
5 Who set its measurements? Surely you know.
    Who stretched a measuring tape on it?
6 On what were its footings sunk;
    who laid its cornerstone,
7     while the morning stars sang in unison
        and all the divine beings shouted?
8 Who enclosed the Sea behind doors
    when it burst forth from the womb,
9     when I made the clouds its garment,
        the dense clouds its wrap,
10     when I imposed my limit for it,
        put on a bar and doors
11     and said, “You may come this far, no farther;
        here your proud waves stop”?

25 Who cut a channel for the downpours
        and a way for blasts of thunder
26     to bring water to uninhabited land,
        a desert with no human
27     to saturate dry wasteland
        and make grass sprout?
