Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that a flood of waters may cover you?
Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go and say to you, ‘Here we are’?
"Who has put wisdom in the inward parts or given understanding to the mind?
Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can tilt the waterskins of the heavens, when the dust runs into a mass and the clods stick fast together?
Do you find food for lions to eat, and satisfy hungry young lions when they hide in their caves, or lie in wait in their dens?
Who is it that feeds the ravens when they wander about hungry, when their young cry to me for food?
Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades or loosen Orion’s belt?
Can you bring forth the signs of the Zodiac in their seasons or lead out the Great Bear with its cubs?
Do you know the laws of the heavens or can you set up their dominion over the earth?"
God to Job – in Job 38, 31-41
