▼ Lit answered and saidreplied, 2 “Even today my b complaint is rebellion;
▼ So with Gr and Syr; M.T. MyHis hand is d heavy despite my groaning.
3 “Oh that I knew where I might find Him,
That I might come to His seat!
4 “I would e present my case before Him
And fill my mouth with arguments.
5 “I would learn the words which He would ▼
▼ Lit answer meanswer,
And perceive what He would say to me.
6 “Would He contend with me by g the greatness of His power?
No, surely He would pay attention to me.
7 “There the upright would h reason with Him;
And I ▼
▼ Or bring forth my justice foreverwould be j delivered forever from my Judge.
8 “Behold, I go forward but He is not there,
And backward, but I k cannot perceive Him;
9 When He acts on the left, I cannot behold Him;
He turns on the right, I cannot see Him.
10 “But He knows the ▼
▼ Lit way with meway I take;
When He has m tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
11 “My foot has n held fast to His path;
I have kept His way and not turned aside.
12 “I have not departed from the command of His lips;
I have treasured the o words of His mouth ▼
▼ Or with some versions, in my breastmore than my ▼
▼ Lit prescribed portionnecessary food.
13 “But He is unique and who can turn Him?
And what His soul desires, that He does.
14 “For He performs what is appointed for me,
And many such decrees are with Him.
15 “Therefore, I would be dismayed at His presence;
When I consider, I am terrified of Him.
16 “It is God who has made my r heart faint,
And the Almighty who has dismayed me,
17 But I s am not silenced by the darkness,
Nor t deep gloom which covers me.
