On the Power of God

If one wished to contend with him (God),
one could not answer him once in a thousand times.
He is wise in heart and mighty in strength
—who has hardened himself against him, and succeeded?—
he who removes mountains, and they know it not,
when he overturns them in his anger,
who shakes the earth out of its place,
and its pillars tremble;
who commands the sun, and it does not rise;
who seals up the stars;
who alone stretched out the heavens
and trampled the waves of the sea;
who made the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the chambers of the south;
10  who does great things beyond searching out,
and marvelous things beyond number.
11  Behold, he passes by me, and I see him not;
he moves on, but I do not perceive him.
12  Behold, he snatches away; who can turn him back?
Who will say to him, ‘What are you doing?’

Question for Reflection
