Chapter 23

JOB.23:1 Then Job answered and said:
JOB.23:2 “Even today my complaint is bitter; My hand is listless because of my groaning.
JOB.23:3 Oh, that I knew where I might find Him, That I might come to His seat!
JOB.23:4 I would present my case before Him, And fill my mouth with arguments.
JOB.23:5 I would know the words which He would answer me, And understand what He would say to me.
JOB.23:6 Would He contend with me in His great power? No! But He would take note of me.
JOB.23:7 There the upright could reason with Him, And I would be delivered forever from my Judge.
JOB.23:8 “Look, I go forward, but He is not there, And backward, but I cannot perceive Him;
JOB.23:9 When He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him; When He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him.
JOB.23:10 But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
JOB.23:11 My foot has held fast to His steps; I have kept His way and not turned aside.
JOB.23:12 I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth More than my necessary food.
JOB.23:13 “But He is unique, and who can make Him change? And whatever His soul desires, that He does.
JOB.23:14 For He performs what is appointed for me, And many such things are with Him.
JOB.23:15 Therefore I am terrified at His presence; When I consider this, I am afraid of Him.
JOB.23:16 For God made my heart weak, And the Almighty terrifies me;
JOB.23:17 Because I was not cut off from the presence of darkness, And He did not hide deep darkness from my face.
