Job 23

Then Job answered and said, Even to-day is my complaint rebellious: My stroke is heavier than my groaning.
1) Or bitter ; Or, accounted rebellion
Oh that I knew where I might find him! That I might come even to his seat! I would set my cause in order before him, And fill my mouth with arguments. I would know the words which he would answer me, And understand what he would say unto me. 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 heed
There the upright might reason with him; So should I be delivered for ever from my judge.

Behold, I go forward, but he is not there ; And backward, but I cannot perceive him; 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, but
10  But he knoweth the 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 me
11 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 necessary food.
1) Or more than my own law 2) Or portion ; See Pr 30:8

13 But he is in one mind , and who can turn him? And what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.
1) Or he is one
14 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.
