Job 231 Then Job answered and said, 2 Even to-day is my complaint ▼ rebellious: My stroke is heavier than my groaning. ▼
▼ 1) Or bitter ; Or, accounted rebellion3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! That I might come even to his seat! 4 I would set my cause in order before him, And fill my mouth with arguments. 5 I would know the words which he would answer me, And understand what he would say unto me. 6 Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? Nay; ▼ but he would give heed unto me. ▼
▼ 1) Or he would only give heed7 There the upright might reason with him; So should I be delivered for ever from my judge. 8 Behold, I go forward, but he is not there ; And backward, but I cannot perceive him; 9 On the left hand, when he doth work, but I cannot behold him; He ▼ hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him. ▼
▼ 1) Or turneth himself to…him, but10 ▼ But he knoweth ▼
▼ 2the way that I take; When he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. ▼
▼ 1) Or For 2) Heb the way that is with me11 My foot hath held fast to his steps; His way have I kept, and turned not aside. 12 I have not gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have treasured up the words of his mouth ▼ more than my ▼
▼ 2necessary food. ▼
▼ 1) Or more than my own law 2) Or portion ; See Pr 30:813 But ▼ he is in one mind , and who can turn him? And what his soul desireth, even that he doeth. ▼
▼ 1) Or he is one14 For he performeth that which is appointed for me: And many such things are with him. 15 Therefore am I terrified at his presence; When I consider, I am afraid of him. 16 For God hath made my heart faint, And the Almighty hath terrified me; 17 ▼ Because I was not cut off before the darkness, Neither did he cover the thick darkness from my face. ▼
▼ 1) Or For I am not dismayed because of the darkness, Nor because thick darkness covereth my face.
