CI. EXHORTATION TO THE FEAR OF GOD: ALL NATURE FEARS HIM BUT NOT THE SINNERS.

CI

1Observe the heaven, ye children of heaven, and every work of the Most High, and fear ye Him 2and work no evil in His presence. If He closes the windows of heaven, and withholds the rain and 3the dew from descending on the earth on your account, what will ye do then? And if He sends His anger upon you because of your deeds, ye cannot petition Him; for ye spake proud and insolent 4words against His righteousness: therefore ye shall have no peace. And see ye not the sailors of the ships, how their ships are tossed to and fro by the waves, and are shaken by the winds, and are 5in sore trouble? And therefore do they fear because all their goodly possessions go upon the sea with them, and they have evil forebodings of heart that the sea will swallow them and they will 6perish therein. Are not the entire sea and all its waters, and all its movements, the work of the Most 7High, and has He not set limits to its doings, and confined it throughout by the sand? And at His reproof it is afraid and dries up, and all its fish die and all that is in it; But ye sinners that are 8on the earth fear Him not. Has He not made the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein? Who has given understanding and wisdom to everything that moves on the earth and in the sea. 9Do not the sailors of the ships fear the sea? Yet sinners fear not the Most High.

 

100

100:1 Attentively consider heaven, all you progeny of heaven, and all the works of the Most High; fear him, nor conduct yourselves criminally before him.

100:2 If He shut up the windows of heaven, restraining the rain and dew, that it may not descend upon the earth on your account, what will you do?

100:3 And if He send his wrath upon you, and upon all your deeds, you are not they who can supplicate him; you who utter against his righteousness, language proud and powerful. To you there shall be no peace.

100:4 Do you not see the commanders of ships, how their vessels are tossed about by the waves, torn to pieces by the winds, and exposed to the greatest peril?

100:5 That they therefore fear, because their whole property is embarked with them on the ocean; and that they forbode evil in their hearts, because it may swallow them up, and they may perish in it?

100:6 Is not the whole sea, all its waters, and all its commotion, the work of him, the Most High; of him who has sealed up all its exertions, and girded it on every side with sand?

100:7 [Is it not] at his rebuke dried up, and alarmed; while all its fish with everything [contained] in it die? And will not you, sinners, who are on earth, fear him? Is not He the maker of heaven and earth, and of all things which are in them?

100:8 And who has given erudition and wisdom to all that move [progressive] upon the earth, and over the sea?

100:9 Are not the commanders of ships terrified at the ocean? And shall not sinners be terrified at the Most High?
