My Heart Pounds

Updated on March 30, 2011

"At this my heart pounds and leaps from its place"

Listen! Listen to the roar of his voice,

To the rumbling that comes from his mouth

Your words are a blustering wind,

Does God pervert justice?

Does the Almighty pervert what is right?

When your children sinned against him

He gave them over to the penalty of their sin

After that comes the sound of his roar;

He thunders with his majestic voice.

How great is God - beyond our understanding,

If you are pure and upright even now he will rouse

himself on your behalf and restore you to your rightful place.

Your beginnings will seem humble,

So prosperous will your future be

He draws up the drops of water,

Which distil as rain to the streams,

The clouds pour down their moisture,

And abundant showers fall on mankind,

Who can understand how he spreads the clouds,

How he thunders from his pavilion?

This is the way he governs the nations,

Can papyrus grow tall where there is no marsh?

Can reeds thrive without water?

While still growing and uncut

They wither more quickly than grass

Such is the destiny of all who forget God;

He fills his hands with lightning,

And commands it to strike its mark

His thunder announces the coming storm,

When his voice resounds he holds nothing back

God's voice thunders in marvellous ways,

He does great things beyond our understanding,

Be like a well watered plant in the sunshine

Spreading its roots over the garden,

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter

And your lips with shouts of joy,

Your enemies will be clothed in shame

And the tents of the wicked will be no more

Indeed, I know that this is true,

How can a mortal be righteous before God?

His wisdomis profound, his power is vast

Who has resisted him and come out unscathed?

He moves mountains without their knowing it

And overturns them in anger,

He shakes the earth from its place

And makes its pillars tremble,

He speaks to the sun and it does not shine;

He says to the snow,'Fall on the earth',

And to the rain shower,'Be a mighty downpour,'

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed

Miracles that cannot be numbered,

If it is the matter of strength, he is mighty,

'Listen to this, stop and consider God's wonders,

Do you know how the clouds hang poised?

Do you know how God controls the clouds?

Now no - one can look at the sun

Bright as it is in the skies

After the wind has swept them clean,

Out of the north he comes in golden splendure;

God comes in awesome majesty,

The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power,

In his justice and great righteousness,he does not oppress,

Therefore, men revere him,

For does he not have regard for all the wise in heart?"

taken from "Job"
