“Can you lift up your voice to the clouds?
Will a flood of water cover you?
Can you send forth lightning?
Thus they may go and say to you.
‘Here we are!’
Who has put wisdom in the inward parts?
Who has given understanding to the mind?
Who has the wisdom to number the clouds?
Who can tilt the water skins of the heavens?
When the dust runs into a mass
And the clods cling together.”
Yahweh wanted to know if Job could control the waters in the clouds. Did he have anything to do with lightning? Could he speak to the clouds? Where did wisdom come from? Who put wisdom in your mind? Who was smart enough to count all the clouds? How did they tilt the water out of the water skins to make it come to earth? Why did water turn dust to clods? These were some of the unanswerable questions that Yahweh posed to Job.
