9 But Job answered 2 “Certainly, I know it is so, and how is a human being to be in the right with Deity? 3 If he chooses to argue a case with him he will not answer him one point out of a thousand. 4 Wise in heart and mighty in strength, who has defied him and remained safe and sound? 5 Him who displaces mountains before they know it, as he has overthrown them in his anger; 6 Him who shakes earth loose from its place and its pillars quiver; 7 Him who says a thing to the sun and it does not break out, and seals off stars; 8 Sole spreader of sky, treader on heights of sea, 9 Maker of Aldebaran, Orion, and the Pleiades and the chambers of the south, 10 Doer of great things inscrutable and wonders innumerable. 11 Here he comes by me and I do not see him, goes past and I do not perceive him— 12* Here he comes down on me, who will turn him back? who will say to him ‘What are you doing?’ 13 God will not turn back his anger; Rahab’s helpers sank under him, 14 Not to speak of such a thing as that I should answer him, choose my words with him, 15 I who if I were in the right would not answer, would beg as a favor for what was my right. 16 If I called and he answered me I would not believe that he would give ear to my voice, 17 He who deals me hurts in a tempest and multiplies my sores for nothing, 18 Does not let me get back my breath but gives me all the bitter mouthfuls I can hold. 19* As for stark strength, there it is! but as for judgment, who will set me a date? 20* If I am in the right my own mouth will put me in the wrong; I am virtuous and he has made a crook of me. 21* I am virtuous—I do not think of my person— I want nothing of my life— 22 It is all one; therefore I say, he makes a clean sweep of virtuous man and rogue. 23 If a scourge brings sudden death he makes fun of innocent men’s despair. 24** A country is given into a rogue’s hands; he covers its judges’ faces. If not then, who is it that does? 25 And my days are swifter than a runner, have gone off without seeing anything good, 26* Have passed like reed boats, like a vulture shooting toward food 27* If I say I will forget my grievance, will quit my dismalness and brighten up, 28 I quail at all my woes, I know I shall not be acquitted. 29 I am the one to be found guilty— what should I take useless trouble for? 30 If I take a snow bath and clean my hands with alkali, 31 Then he will dip me in a mudhole and my garments will abominate me. 32 For he is not a man like me whom I should answer, we should go into court together; 33 There is no adjudicator between us who will lay his hands on us both. 34 Let him take his cudgel away from over me and his terror not overwhelm me; 35 I will speak and not be afraid of him, because I am not like that to my knowledge.
