Then JobH347 answeredH6030 and said,H559
I knowH3045 it is soH3651 of a truth:H551 but howH4100 should manH582 be justH6663 with God?H410
IfH518 he will contendH7378 with him, he cannotH3808 answerH6030 him oneH259 of a thousand.H505
He is wiseH2450 in heart,H3824 and mightyH533 in strength:H3581 whoH4310 has hardenedH7185 himself againstH413 him, and has prospered?H7999
Which removesH6275 the mountains,H2022 and they knowH3045 not: whichH834 overturnsH2015 them in his anger.H639
Which shakesH7264 the earthH776 out of her place,H4725 and the pillarsH5982 thereof tremble.H6426
Which commandsH559 the sun,H2775 and it risesH2224 not; and sealsH2856 up the stars.H3556
Which aloneH905 spreadsH5186 out the heavens,H8064 and treadsH1869 on the wavesH1116 of the sea.H3220
Which makesH6213 Arcturus,H5906 Orion,H3685 and Pleiades,H3598 and the chambersH2315 of the south.H8486
Which doesH6213 greatH1419 things pastH369 findingH2714 out; yes, and wondersH6381 withoutH5704 H369 number.H4557
See,H2005 he goesH5674 by me, and I seeH7200 him not: he passesH2498 on also, but I perceiveH995 him not.
Behold,H2005 he takesH2862 away,H2862 whoH4310 can hinderH7725 him? whoH4310 will sayH559 to him, WhatH4100 doH6213 you?
If GodH433 will not withdrawH7725 his anger,H639 the proudH7293 helpersH5826 do stoopH7817 underH8478 him.
HowH637 muchH637 H3588 less shall I answerH6030 him, and chooseH977 out my wordsH1697 to reason with him?
Whom,H834 thoughH518 I were righteous,H6663 yet would I not answer,H6030 but I would make supplicationH2603 to my judge.H8199
IfH518 I had called,H7121 and he had answeredH6030 me; yet would I not believeH539 that he had listenedH238 to my voice.H6963
For he breaksH7779 me with a tempest,H8183 and multipliesH7235 my woundsH6482 withoutH2600 cause.H2600
He will not sufferH5414 me to take my breath,H7307 but fillsH7646 me with bitterness.H4472
IfH518 I speak of strength,H3581 see,H2009 he is strong:H533 and ifH518 of judgment,H4941 whoH4310 shall setH3259 me a time to plead?
IfH518 I justifyH6663 myself, my own mouthH6310 shall condemnH7561 me: if I say, I am perfect,H8535 it shall also prove me perverse.H6140
Though I were perfect,H8535 yet would I not knowH3045 my soul:H5315 I would despiseH3988 my life.H2416
ThisH1931 is oneH259 thing, thereforeH5921 H3651 I saidH559 it, He destroysH3615 the perfectH8535 and the wicked.H7563
IfH518 the whipH7752 slayH4191 suddenly,H6597 he will laughH3932 at the trialH4531 of the innocent.H5355
The earthH776 is givenH5414 into the handH3027 of the wicked:H7563 he coversH4374 the facesH6440 of the judgesH8199 thereof; ifH518 not, where,H645 and whoH4310 is he?
Now my daysH3117 are swifterH7043 thanH4480 a post:H7323 they fleeH1272 away, they seeH7200 noH3808 good.H2896
They are passedH2498 away as the swiftH16 ships:H591 as the eagleH5404 that hastensH2907 to the prey.H400
IfH518 I say,H559 I will forgetH7911 my complaint,H7879 I will leaveH5800 off my heaviness,H6440 and comfortH1082 myself:
I am afraidH3025 of allH3605 my sorrows,H6094 I knowH3045 that you will not hold me innocent.H5352
If I be wicked,H7561 whyH4100 then laborH3021 I in vain?H1892
IfH518 I washH7364 myself with snowH7950 water,H7950 and make my handsH3709 neverH1253 so clean;H2141
YetH227 shall you plungeH2881 me in the ditch,H7845 and my own clothesH8008 shall abhorH8581 me.
For he is not a man,H376 as I am, that I should answerH6030 him, and we should comeH935 togetherH3162 in judgment.H4941
NeitherH3808 is there any judgeH3198 betweenH996 us, that might layH7896 his handH3027 on us both.H8147
Let him takeH5493 his rodH7626 awayH5493 from me, and let not his fearH367 terrifyH1204 me:
Then would I speak,H1696 and not fearH3372 him; but it is not soH3651 with me.
