Yahweh responds to Job (Job 40:6-40:9)

“Then Yahweh answered Job out of the whirlwind.

‘Gird up your loins like a man!

I will question you.

You declare to me.

Will you even put me in the wrong?

Will you condemn me that you may be justified?

Do you have a divine arm?

Can you thunder with a voice like his?’”

Once again, Yahweh will speak out a whirlwind like he did earlier at the beginning of chapter 38. The whirlwind was the classic place for the voice of Yahweh. Once again, it is a challenge to Job. Was Job going to justify himself by saying that God was wrong?   In fact, he mocked Job by saying that he did not have a divine arm or a divine thunderous voice.
