Job 23:3-73Oh a that I knew where I might find him,
that I might come even to his b seat!
4I would c lay my case before him
and fill my mouth with arguments.
5I would know what he would answer me
and understand what he would say to me.
6Would he d contend with me in the greatness of his power?
No; he would pay attention to me.
7There an upright man could argue with him,
and I would be acquitted forever by my judge.
Job 31:3535Oh, that I had one to hear me!
(Here is my signature! Let the Almighty e answer me!)
Oh, that I had f the indictment written by my adversary!
Job 33:6-186Behold, I am toward God as you are;
I too was pinched off from a piece of g clay.
7Behold, no h fear of me need terrify you;
my i pressure will not be heavy upon you.
8 “Surely you have spoken in my ears,
and I have heard the sound of your words.
9You say, ‘I am j pure, without k transgression;
I am clean, and there is no iniquity in me.
10Behold, he finds occasions against me,
he l counts me as his enemy,
11he m puts my feet in the stocks
and n watches all my paths.’
12 “Behold, in this you are not right. I will answer you,
for God is greater than man.
13Why do you o contend against him,
saying, ‘He p will answer none of man’s ▼
▼Hebrew hiswords’? ▼
▼Or He will not answer for any of his own words
14For God s speaks in one way,
t and in two, though man u does not perceive it.
15In v a dream, in w a vision of x the night,
when y deep sleep falls on men,
while they slumber on their beds,
16then he z opens the ears of men
and terrifies them with warnings,
17that he may turn man aside from his aa deed
and conceal pride from a man;
18he keeps back his soul from the pit,
his life from ab perishing by the sword.

Job 40:88Will you even put me in the wrong?
Will you condemn me that al you may be in the right?
