Job Says There Is No Arbitrator between God and Man1 Then Job ▼
▼ Lit answered and saidanswered, 2 “In truth I know that this is so;
But how can a b man be in the right ▼
▼ Lit withbefore God?
3 “If one wished to d dispute with Him,
He could not answer Him once in a thousand times.
4 e “Wise in heart and f mighty in strength,
Who has ▼
▼ Lit stiffened his neck against, h defied Him ▼
▼ Lit and remained safewithout harm?
5 j “It is God who removes the mountains, they know not how,
When He overturns them in His anger;
6 Who k shakes the earth out of its place,
And its l pillars tremble;
7 Who commands the m sun ▼
▼ Lit and it does not shinenot to shine,
And sets a seal upon the stars;
8 Who alone o stretches out the heavens
▼ Lit treads upon the heights of, q tramples down the waves of the sea;
9 Who makes the r Bear, Orion and the Pleiades,
And the s chambers of the south;
10 Who t does great things ▼
▼ Lit until there is no searching outunfathomable,
And wondrous works without number.
11 “Were He to pass by me, v I would not see Him;
Were He to move past me, I would not perceive Him.
12 “Were He to snatch away, who could w restrain Him?
Who could say to Him, ‘ x What are You doing?’
13 “God will not turn back His anger;
Beneath Him crouch the helpers of y Rahab.
14 “How then can z I ▼
▼ Or plead my caseanswer Him,
And choose my words ▼
▼ Lit withbefore Him?
15 “For ac though I were right, I could not ▼
▼ Or plead my caseanswer;
I would have to ae implore the mercy of my judge.
16 “If I called and He answered me,
I could not believe that He was listening to my voice.
17 “For He af bruises me with a tempest
And multiplies my wounds without cause.
18 “He will ag not allow me to get my breath,
But saturates me with ah bitterness.
19 “If it is a matter of power ai behold, He is the strong one!
And if it is a matter of justice, who can summon ▼
▼ So with Gr; Heb meHim?
20 ak “Though I am righteous, my mouth will al condemn me;
Though I am guiltless, He will declare me guilty.
21 “I am am guiltless;
I do not take notice of myself;
I an despise my life.
22 “It is all one; therefore I say,
‘He ao destroys the guiltless and the wicked.’
23 “If the scourge kills suddenly,
He ap mocks the despair of the innocent.
24 “The earth aq is given into the hand of the wicked;
He ar covers the faces of its judges.
If it is not He, then who is it?
25 “Now as my days are swifter than a runner;
They flee away at they see no good.
26 “They slip by like au reed boats,
Like an av eagle that swoops on ▼
▼ Lit foodits prey.
27 “Though I say, ‘I will forget ax my complaint,
I will leave off my sad countenance and be cheerful,’
28 I am ay afraid of all my pains,
I know that az You will not acquit me.
29 “I am accounted ba wicked,
Why then should I toil in vain?
30 “If I should bb wash myself with snow
And cleanse bc my hands with lye,
31 Yet You would plunge me into the pit,
And my own clothes would abhor me.
32 “For bd He is not a man as I am that be I may answer Him,
That we may go to ▼
▼ Lit judgmentcourt together.
33 “There is no bg umpire between us,
Who may lay his hand upon us both.
34 “Let Him bh remove His rod from me,
And let not dread of Him terrify me.
35 “Then I bi would speak and not fear Him;
But I am not like that in myself.
