Job Chapter 40 - American Standard Version

1
Moreover Jehovah answered Job, and said,
2
Shall he that cavilleth contend with the Almighty? He that argueth with God, let him answer it.
3
Then Job answered Jehovah, and said,
4
Behold, I am of small account; What shall I answer thee? I lay my hand upon my mouth.
5
Once have I spoken, and I will not answer; Yea, twice, but I will proceed no further.
6
Then Jehovah answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
7
Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
8
Wilt thou even annul my judgment? Wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be justified?
9
Or hast thou an arm like God? And canst thou thunder with a voice like him?
10
Deck thyself now with excellency and dignity; And array thyself with honor and majesty.
11
Pour forth the overflowings of thine anger; And look upon every one that is proud, and abase him.
12
Look on every one that is proud, [and] bring him low; And tread down the wicked where they stand.
13
Hide them in the dust together; Bind their faces in the hidden [place].
14
Then will I also confess of thee That thine own right hand can save thee.
15
Behold now, behemoth, which I made as well as thee; He eateth grass as an ox.
16
Lo now, his strength is in his loins, And his force is in the muscles of his belly.
17
He moveth his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together.
18
His bones are [as] tubes of brass; His limbs are like bars of iron.
19
He is the chief of the ways of God: He [only] that made him giveth him his sword.
20
Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the beasts of the field do play.
21
He lieth under the lotus-trees, In the covert of the reed, and the fen.
22
The lotus-trees cover him with their shade; The willows of the brook compass him about.
23
Behold, if a river overflow, he trembleth not; He is confident, though a Jordan swell even to his mouth.
24
Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare?

Daily Golden Verse

2nd Chronicles 20:15-17
[20:15] and he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat: Thus saith Jehovah unto you, Fear not ye, neither be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God`s. [20:16] To-morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the ascent of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the valley, before the wilderness of Jeruel. [20:17] Ye shall not need to fight in this [battle]: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of Jehovah with you, O Judah and Jerusalem; fear not, nor be dismayed: to-morrow go out against them: for Jehovah is with you.
