Job 23

23:1 And Job answereth and saith: -- 23:2 Also--to-day [is] my complaint bitter, My hand hath been heavy because of my sighing. 23:3 O that I had known--and I find Him, I come in unto His seat, 23:4 I arrange before Him the cause, And my mouth fill [with] arguments. 23:5 I know the words He doth answer me, And understand what He saith to me. 23:6 In the abundance of power doth He strive with me No! surely He putteth [it] in me. 23:7 There the upright doth reason with Him, And I escape for ever from my judge.  23:8 Lo, forward I go--and He is not, And backward--and I perceive him not. 23:9 [ To] the left in His working--and I see not, He is covered [on] the right, and I behold not. 23:10 For He hath known the way with me, He hath tried me--as gold I go forth. 23:11 On His step hath my foot laid hold, His way I have kept, and turn not aside, 23:12 The command of His lips, and I depart not. Above my allotted portion I have laid up The sayings of His mouth.  23:13 And He [is] in one [mind] , And who doth turn Him back And His soul hath desired--and He doth [it] . 23:14 For He doth complete my portion, And many such things [are] with Him. 23:15 Therefore, from His presence I am troubled, I consider, and am afraid of Him. 23:16 And God hath made my heart soft, And the Mighty hath troubled me. 23:17 For I have not been cut off before darkness, And before me He covered thick darkness.
