Job 12: 10:  “In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.” (NIV)

Job 12: 13-15:  “With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.  Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again: he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.  Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up: also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.”

Job 12: 17-21:  “He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools.     He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.  He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.  He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged.  He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.”

Job 12: 23-25:  “He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.  He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.  They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.”
