Chapter 23

1

 And Job answereth and saith: -- 

2

 Also -- to-day [is] my complaint bitter, My hand hath been heavy because of my sighing. 

3

 O that I had known -- and I find Him, I come in unto His seat, 

4

 I arrange before Him the cause, And my mouth fill [with] arguments. 

5

 I know the words He doth answer me, And understand what He saith to me. 

6

 In the abundance of power doth He strive with me? No! surely He putteth [it] in me. 

7

 There the upright doth reason with Him, And I escape for ever from my judge. 

8

 Lo, forward I go -- and He is not, And backward -- and I perceive him not. 

9

 [To] the left in His working -- and I see not, He is covered [on] the right, and I behold not. 

10

 For He hath known the way with me, He hath tried me -- as gold I go forth. 

11

 On His step hath my foot laid hold, His way I have kept, and turn not aside, 

12

 The command of His lips, and I depart not. Above my allotted portion I have laid up The sayings of His mouth. 

13

 And He [is] in one [mind], And who doth turn Him back? And His soul hath desired -- and He doth [it]. 

14

 For He doth complete my portion, And many such things [are] with Him. 

15

 Therefore, from His presence I am troubled, I consider, and am afraid of Him. 

16

 And God hath made my heart soft, And the Mighty hath troubled me. 

17

 For I have not been cut off before darkness, And before me He covered thick darkness. 

Job 24
