His wisdom is profound, his power is vast.

Though one wished to dispute with him, he could not answer him one time out of a thousand. His wisdom is profound, his power is vast. Who has resisted him and come out unscathed? He moves mountains without their knowing it and overturns them in his anger. He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble. He speaks to the sun and it does not shine; he seals off the light of the stars. He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea. He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the constellations of the south. He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. When he passes me, I cannot see him; when he goes by, I cannot perceive him. If he snatches away, who can stop him? Who can say to him, `What are you doing?’”

In chapter 9, Job responds to his “friend,” Bildad,  directly. He essentially agrees with what Bildad is saying, and then realizes that it is futile to argue with God.

God does whatsoever He pleases  and Job can do nothing to stop Him. Indeed, “His wisdom is profound, his power is vast.”
