Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
Gird up now your loins like a man, and I will demand of you, and you declare to Me.
Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Declare to Me, if you have and know understanding.
Who determined the measures of the earth, if you know? Or who stretched the measuring line upon it?
Upon what were the foundations of it fastened, or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Or who shut up the sea with doors when it broke forth and issued out of the womb?--
When I made the clouds the garment of it, and thick darkness a swaddling band for it,
And marked for it My appointed boundary and set bars and doors,
And said, Thus far shall you come and no farther; and here shall your proud waves be stayed?
Have you commanded the morning since your days began and caused the dawn to know its place,
So that may get hold of the corners of the earth and shake the wickedness out of it?
It is changed like clay into which a seal is pressed; and things stand out like a many-colored garment.
From the wicked their light is withheld, and their uplifted arm is broken.
Have you explored the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in the recesses of the deep?
Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Or have you seen the doors of deep darkness?
Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth? Tell Me, if you know it all.
Where is the How, except by divine inspiration, could Job have known that light does not dwell in a place, but a way? For light, as modern man has discovered, involves motion (wave motion). Traveling 186,000 miles a second, it can only dwell in a way.way where light dwells? And as for darkness, where is its abode,
That you may conduct it to its home, and may know the paths to its house?
You must know, since you were born then! Or because you are so extremely old!
Have you entered the treasuries of the snow, or have you seen the treasuries of the hail,
Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war?
By what way is the light distributed, or the east wind spread over the earth?
Who has prepared a channel for the torrents of rain, or a path for the thunderbolt,
To cause it to rain on the uninhabited land on the desert where no man lives,
To satisfy the waste and desolate ground and to cause the tender grass to spring forth?
Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew?
Out of whose womb came the ice? And the hoary frost of heaven, who has given it birth?
The waters are congealed like stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
Can you bind the chains of Pleiades, or loose the cords of Orion?
Can you lead forth the signs of the zodiac in their season? Or can you guide the Bear with her young?
Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule upon the earth?
Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, so that an abundance of waters may cover you?
Can you send lightnings, that they may go and say to you, Here we are?
Who has put wisdom in the inward parts ? Or who has given understanding to the mind ?
Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of the heavens
When the dust to run into a mass and the clods to cleave fast together?
Can you hunt the prey for the lion? Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions
When they couch in their dens or lie in wait in their hiding place?
Who provides for the raven its prey when its young ones cry to God and wander about for lack of food?

Summary: “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?” (Job 38:2)
