sunrise over swamps

sunset over melancholy seas

meditations from Job

on July 6, 2011

He covers the face of the full moon,

spreading His clouds over it.

He marks the horizon on the face of the waters

for a boundary between light and darkness.

See how He scatters the lightning about Him

bathing the depths of the sea.

He fills His hands with lightning

and commands it to strike its mark.

Out of the north He comes in golden splendour.

 

[Job 26: 9-10, 36: 30, 37: 22, adapted from the NIV]
