12th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: 1st Reading

Job 38:1, 8-11

The Lord addressed Job out of the storm and said:
   Who shut within doors the sea,
   when it burst forth from the womb;
when I made the clouds its garment
   and thick darkness its swaddling bands?
When I set limits for it
   and fastened the bar of its door,
and said: Thus far shall you come but no farther,
   and here shall your proud waves be stilled!
