Job 33

33:1 And yet, I pray thee, O Job, Hear my speech and [to] all my words give ear. 33:2 Lo, I pray thee, I have opened my mouth, My tongue hath spoken in the palate. 33:3 Of the uprightness of my heart [are] my sayings, And knowledge have my lips clearly spoken. 33:4 The Spirit of God hath made me, And the breath of the Mighty doth quicken me. 33:5 If thou art able--answer me, Set in array before me--station thyself. 33:6 Lo, I [am] , according to thy word, for God, From the clay I--I also, have been formed. 33:7 Lo, my terror doth not frighten thee, And my burden on thee is not heavy.  33:8 Surely--thou hast said in mine ears, And the sounds of words I hear: 33:9 `Pure [am] I, without transgression, Innocent [am] I, and I have no iniquity. 33:10 Lo, occasions against me He doth find, He doth reckon me for an enemy to Him, 33:11 He doth put in the stocks my feet, He doth watch all my paths.' 33:12 Lo, [in] this thou hast not been righteous, I answer thee, that greater is God than man. 33:13 Wherefore against Him hast thou striven, When [for] all His matters He answereth not  33:14 For once doth God speak, and twice, (He doth not behold it.) 33:15 In a dream--a vision of night, In the falling of deep sleep on men, In slumberings on a bed. 33:16 Then He uncovereth the ear of men, And for their instruction sealeth: 33:17 To turn aside man [from] doing, And pride from man He concealeth. 33:18 He keepeth back his soul from corruption, And his life from passing away by a dart.  33:19 And he hath been reproved With pain on his bed, And the strife of his bones [is] enduring. 33:20 And his life hath nauseated bread, And his soul desirable food. 33:21 His flesh is consumed from being seen, And high are his bones, they were not seen! 33:22 And draw near to the pit doth his soul, And his life to those causing death. 33:23 If there is by him a messenger, An interpreter--one of a thousand, To declare for man his uprightness: 33:24 Then He doth favour him and saith, `Ransom him from going down to the pit, I have found an atonement.' 33:25 Fresher [is] his flesh than a child's, He returneth to the days of his youth. 33:26 He maketh supplication unto God, And He accepteth him. And he seeth His face with shouting, And He returneth to man His righteousness. 33:27 He looketh on men, and saith, `I sinned, And uprightness I have perverted, And it hath not been profitable to me. 33:28 He hath ransomed my soul From going over into the pit, And my life on the light looketh.'  33:29 Lo, all these doth God work, Twice--thrice with man, 33:30 To bring back his soul from the pit, To be enlightened with the light of the living. 33:31 Attend, O Job, hearken to me, Keep silent, and I--I do speak. 33:32 If there are words--answer me, Speak, for I have a desire to justify thee. 33:33 If there are not--hearken thou to me, Keep silent, and I teach thee wisdom.
