and there is e none to deliver out of your hand?
Job 13:1515 f Though he slay me, I will g hope in him; ▼
▼Or Behold, he will slay me; I have no hope

Job 29:11-1711When the ear heard, it called me blessed,
and when the eye saw, it approved,
12because I o delivered the poor who cried for help,
and the fatherless who had none to help him.
13 p The blessing of him who was q about to perish came upon me,
and I caused r the widow’s heart to sing for joy.
14I s put on righteousness, and it clothed me;
my justice was like a robe and t a turban.
15I was u eyes to the blind
and feet to the lame.
16I was a father to the needy,
and I searched out v the cause of him whom I did not know.
17I w broke x the fangs of the unrighteous
and made him drop his prey from his teeth.
Job’s Final Appeal1 “I have made a covenant with my y eyes;
how then could I gaze at a virgin?
2What would be z my portion from God above
and aa my heritage from the Almighty on high?
3Is not calamity for the unrighteous,
and disaster for the workers of iniquity?
4 ab Does not he see my ways
and ac number all my steps?
5 “If I have walked with falsehood
and my foot has hastened to deceit;
6(Let me be ad weighed in a just balance,
and let God know my integrity!)
7if my step has turned aside from the way
and ae my heart has gone after my eyes,
and if any af spot has stuck to my hands,
8then let me ag sow, and another eat,
and let what grows for me ▼
▼Or let my descendantsbe rooted out.
9 “If my heart has been enticed toward a woman,
and I have ai lain in wait at my neighbor’s door,
10then let my wife aj grind for another,
and let others ak bow down on her.
11For that would be a heinous crime;
that would be an iniquity al to be punished by the judges;
12for that would be a fire am that consumes as far as Abaddon,
and it would burn to the root all my increase.
13 “If I have rejected the cause of my manservant or my maidservant,
when they brought a complaint against me,
14what then shall I do when God rises up?
When he an makes inquiry, what shall I answer him?
15Did ao not he who made me in the womb make him?
And did not one fashion us in the womb?
16 “If I have ap withheld anything that the poor desired,
or have aq caused the eyes of the widow to fail,
17or have eaten my morsel alone,
and the fatherless has not eaten of it
18(for from my youth the fatherless ▼
▼Hebrew hegrew up with me as with a father,
and from my mother’s womb I guided the widow ▼
19if I have seen anyone at perish for au lack of clothing,
or the needy without av covering,
20if his body has not aw blessed me, ▼
▼Hebrew if his loins have not blessed me
and if he was not warmed with the fleece of my sheep,
21if I have raised my hand against ay the fatherless,
because I saw my help in az the gate,
22then let my shoulder blade fall from my shoulder,
and let my arm be broken from its socket.
23For I was ba in terror of calamity from God,
and I could not have faced his bb majesty.
24 bc “If I have made gold my bd trust
or called be fine gold my confidence,
25if I have bf rejoiced because my wealth was abundant
or because bg my hand had found much,
26 bh if I have looked at the sun ▼
▼Hebrew the lightwhen it shone,
or bj the moon moving in splendor,
27and my heart has been secretly enticed,
and my mouth has kissed my hand,
28this also would be bk an iniquity to be punished by the judges,
for I would have been false to God above.
29 “If I have bl rejoiced at the ruin of him who hated me,
or exulted when evil overtook him
30( bm I have not let my mouth sin
by asking for his life with a curse),
31if the men of my tent have not said,
‘Who is there that has not been filled with his bn meat?’
32( bo the sojourner has not lodged in the street;
I have opened my doors to the traveler),
33if I bp have concealed my transgressions bq as others do ▼
▼Or as Adam did
by hiding my iniquity in my heart,
34because I stood in great fear of bs the multitude,
and the contempt of families terrified me,
so that I kept silence, and did not go out of doors—
35Oh, that I had one to hear me!
(Here is my signature! Let the Almighty bt answer me!)
Oh, that I had bu the indictment written by my adversary!
36Surely I would carry it on my bv shoulder;
I would bw bind it on me as bx a crown;
37I would give him an account of all my steps;
like a prince I would approach him.
38 “If my land has cried out against me
and its furrows have wept together,
39 by if I have eaten its yield without payment
and made its owners bz breathe their last,
40let ca thorns grow instead of wheat,
and foul weeds instead of barley.”
The words of Job are ended.
Job 33:99You say, ‘I am cb pure, without cc transgression;
I am clean, and there is no iniquity in me.
