018:033:001
Wherefore,
Job,
I pray thee,
hear my speeches,
and hearken to all my words.


018:033:002
Behold,
now I have opened my mouth,
my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.


018:033:003
My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart:
and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.


018:033:004
The spirit of God hath made me,
and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.


018:033:005
If thou canst answer me,
set thy words in order before me,
stand up.


018:033:006
Behold,
I am according to thy wish in God's stead:
I also am formed out of the clay.


018:033:007
Behold,
my terror shall not make thee afraid,
neither shall my hand be heavy upon thee.


018:033:008
Surely thou hast spoken in mine hearing,
and I have heard the voice of thy words,
saying,


018:033:009
I am clean without transgression,
I am innocent;
neither is there iniquity in me.


018:033:010
Behold,
he findeth occasions against me,
he counteth me for his enemy,


018:033:011
He putteth my feet in the stocks,
he marketh all my paths.


018:033:012
Behold,
in this thou art not just:
I will answer thee,
that God is greater than man.


018:033:013
Why dost thou strive against him?
for he giveth not account of any of his matters.


018:033:014
For God speaketh once,
yea twice,
yet man perceiveth it not.


018:033:015
In a dream,
in a vision of the night,
when deep sleep falleth upon men,
in slumberings upon the bed;


018:033:016
Then he openeth the ears of men,
and sealeth their instruction,


018:033:017
That he may withdraw man from his purpose,
and hide pride from man.


018:033:018
He keepeth back his soul from the pit,
and his life from perishing by the sword.


018:033:019
He is chastened also with pain upon his bed,
and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:


018:033:020
So that his life abhorreth bread,
and his soul dainty meat.


018:033:021
His flesh is consumed away,
that it cannot be seen;
and his bones that were not seen stick out.


018:033:022
Yea,
his soul draweth near unto the grave,
and his life to the destroyers.


018:033:023
If there be a messenger with him,
an interpreter,
one among a thousand,
to shew unto man his uprightness:


018:033:024
Then he is gracious unto him,
and saith,
Deliver him from going down to the pit:
I have found a ransom.


018:033:025
His flesh shall be fresher than a child's:
he shall return to the days of his youth:


018:033:026
He shall pray unto God,
and he will be favourable unto him:
and he shall see his face with joy:
for he will render unto man his righteousness.


018:033:027
He looketh upon men,
and if any say,
I have sinned,
and perverted that which was right,
and it profited me not;


018:033:028
He will deliver his soul from going into the pit,
and his life shall see the light.


018:033:029
Lo,
all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,


018:033:030
To bring back his soul from the pit,
to be enlightened with the light of the living.


018:033:031
Mark well,
O Job,
hearken unto me:
hold thy peace,
and I will speak.


018:033:032
If thou hast anything to say,
answer me:
speak,
for I desire to justify thee.


018:033:033
If not,
hearken unto me:
hold thy peace,
and I shall teach thee wisdom.
