Original video
Spoken:
Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the whirlwind.

Come, gird up your loins like a man
Answer Me now if you can
Where were you when I made all you see?
If you know, then come tell it to Me

Has the morning been at your command?
Have you made the dawn come when you planned?
Which way to the dwelling of light?
And just where is the home of the night?

Will you try to tell God what should be?
Speak up if you know more than Me!
Will the creature now rise to My height
And tell Me what I do is not right?

Now stand up in majestic array
In glory more bright than the day
Send all who have sinned to their graves
Then perhaps your own life you could save

So, come, gird up your loins like a man
And answer Me now if you can
Exalt yourself now in My sight
Condemn Me so you can be right
Exalt yourself now in My sight
And condemn Me so you can be right

Lord, behold, I am nothing but dust
In Your presence, no man can be just
Proud words came before You were here
Now I tremble in terror and fear

As a fool I have raged on alone
But no more, as I kneel at Your throne
I had heard just a whisper, a trace
All is changed when we meet face to face

Such things I did not understand
They’re too great for the mind of a man
All my words have been foolish and rash
I repent in the dust and the ash
All my words have been foolish and rash
And I repent in the dust and the ash

Spoken:
And it was so that after the Lord had spoken these words unto Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job has." And the Lord restored Job's fortunes when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years and saw his sons and his sons' sons, even four generations. So Job died, being old and full of days.
