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 bitter: 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 order [my] cause 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 Will he plead against me with [his] great power? No; but he would put [strength] in me.

23:7 There the righteous might dispute 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, where 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 his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined.

23:12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed 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 [the thing that is] appointed for me: and many such [things are] with him.

23:15 Therefore am I troubled at his presence: when I consider, I am afraid of him.

23:16 For God maketh my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth me:

23:17 Because I was not cut off before the darkness, [neither] hath he covered the darkness from my face.
