King James Bible : Job : Chapter 28

28:2
Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.
28:3
He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.
28:4
The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men.
28:5

28:6
The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.
28:7

28:8
The lion’s whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.
28:9

28:10
He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.
28:11
He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.
28:12
But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
28:13
Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.
28:14
The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.

28:21
Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
28:22
Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
28:23

28:25
To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
28:27

28:28
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
