018:023:001
Then Job answered and said,


018:023:002
Even to day is my complaint bitter:
my stroke is heavier than my groaning.


018:023:003
Oh that I knew where I might find him!
that I might come even to his seat!


018:023:004
I would order my cause before him,
and fill my mouth with arguments.


018:023:005
I would know the words which he would answer me,
and understand what he would say unto me.


018:023:006
Will he plead against me with his great power?
No;
but he would put strength in me.


018:023:007
There the righteous might dispute with him;
so should I be delivered for ever from my judge.


018:023:008
Behold,
I go forward,
but he is not there;
and backward,
but I cannot perceive him:


018:023:009
On the left hand,
where he doth work,
but I cannot behold him:
he hideth himself on the right hand,
that I cannot see him:


018:023:010
But he knoweth the way that I take:
when he hath tried me,
I shall come forth as gold.


018:023:011
My foot hath held his steps,
his way have I kept,
and not declined.


018:023:012
Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips;
I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.


018:023:013
But he is in one mind,
and who can turn him?
and what his soul desireth,
even that he doeth.


018:023:014
For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me:
and many such things are with him.


018:023:015
Therefore am I troubled at his presence:
when I consider,
I am afraid of him.


018:023:016
For God maketh my heart soft,
and the Almighty troubleth me:


018:023:017
Because I was not cut off before the darkness,
neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.
