Job 23

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42]

23:1 Then Job answered and said,

23:2 Even to-day is my complaint rebellious: My stroke is heavier than my groaning.

23:3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! That I might come even to his seat!

23:4 I would set my cause in order before him, And fill my mouth with arguments.

23:5 I would know the words which he would answer me, And understand what he would say unto me.

23:6 Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? Nay; but he would give heed unto me.

23:7 There the upright might reason with him; So should I be delivered for ever from my judge.

23:8 Behold, I go forward, but he is not `there'; And backward, but I cannot perceive him;

23:9 On the left hand, when he doth work, but I cannot behold him; He hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him.

23:10 But he knoweth the way that I take; When he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

23:11 My foot hath held fast to his steps; His way have I kept, and turned not aside.

23:12 I have not gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have treasured up the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.

23:13 But he is in one `mind', and who can turn him? And what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.

23:14 For he performeth that which is appointed for me: And many such things are with him.

23:15 Therefore am I terrified at his presence; When I consider, I am afraid of him.

23:16 For God hath made my heart faint, And the Almighty hath terrified me;

23:17 Because I was not cut off before the darkness, Neither did he cover the thick darkness from my face.
