8 It is higher than the heavens: what can you do? It is deeper than Sheol: what can you know?
Job 22:12  Amos 9:2  Isa 55:9  Job 26:6  Job 35:5  2Chr 6:18  Eph 3:18-19 

9 It would be longer to measure than the earth and broader than the sea.

17 Then begins an existence more radiant than noon, and the very darkness will be bright as morning.
Ps 37:6  Isa 58:8-10  Hos 6:3  Ps 112:4  Prov 4:18  1Chr 29:10  Job 42:11-17 

18 Confident because there is hope; after your troubles, you will sleep secure.
Ps 3:5  Ps 4:8  Prov 3:24-26  Lev 26:5-6  Col 1:27  Job 6:11  Job 7:6 

19 When you lie down to rest, no one will trouble you, and many will seek your favour.
Ps 45:12  Isa 45:14  Isa 60:14  Job 42:8-9  Rev 3:9  Gen 26:26-31  Lev 26:6
