1"At this also my heart trembles,
and leaps out of its place.
2Listen, listen to the thunder of his voice
and the rumbling that comes from his mouth.
3Under the whole heaven he lets it loose,
and his lightning to the corners of the earth.
4After it his voice roars;
he thunders with his majestic voice
and he does not restrain the lightnings when his voice is heard.
5God thunders wondrously with his voice;
he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
6For to the snow he says, 'Fall on the earth';
and the shower of rain, his heavy shower of rain,
7serves as a sign on everyone's hand,
so that all whom he has made may know it.
8Then the animals go into their lairs
and remain in their dens.
9From its chamber comes the whirlwind,
and cold from the scattering winds.
10By the breath of God ice is given,
and the broad waters are frozen fast.
11He loads the thick cloud with moisture;
the clouds scatter his lightning.
12They turn round and round by his guidance,
to accomplish all that he commands them
on the face of the habitable world.
13Whether for correction, or for his land,
or for love, he causes it to happen.
