Job, reproving the uncharitable spirit of Bildad,
Job 26:1 Forsothe Joob answeride, and seide, Whos helpere art thou? Job 26:2 whether of the feble, and susteyneste the arm of hym, which is not strong? Job 26:3 To whom hast thou youe counsel? In hap to hym that hath not wisdom; and thou hast schewid ful myche prudence. Job 26:4 Ether whom woldist thou teche? whether not hym, that made brething?
acknowledgeth the power of God to be infinite and unsearchable.
Job 26:5 Lo! giauntis weilen vnder watris, and thei that dwellen with hem. Job 26:6 Helle is nakid bifor hym, and noon hilyng is to perdicioun. Job 26:7 Which God stretchith forth the north on voide thing, and hangith the erthe on nouyt. Job 26:8 Which God byndith watris in her cloudis, that tho breke not out togidere dounward. Job 26:9 Whych God holdith the cheer of his seete, and spredith abrood theron his cloude. Job 26:10 He hath cumpassid a terme to watris, til that liyt and derknessis be endid. Job 26:11 The pilers of heuene tremblen, and dreden at his wille. Job 26:12 In the strengthe of hym the sees weren gaderid togidere sudeynly, and his prudence smoot the proude. Job 26:13 His spiryt ournede heuenes, and the crokid serpent was led out bi his hond, ledynge out as a mydwijf ledith out a child. Job 26:14 Lo! these thingis ben seid in partie of hise weyes; and whanne we han herd vnnethis a litil drope of his word, who may se the thundur of his greetnesse?
