Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:1 -
Howbeit, Job, I pray thee, hear my speech,
And hearken to all my words.

Behold now, I have opened my mouth;
My tongue hath spoken in my mouth.

My words shall utter the uprightness of my heart;
And that which my lips know they shall speak sincerely.

The Spirit of God hath made me,
And the breath of the Almighty giveth me life.

If thou canst, answer thou me;
Set thy words in order before me, stand forth.

Behold, I am toward God even as thou art:

Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid,
Neither shall my pressure be heavy upon thee.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:8 -
Surely thou hast spoken in my hearing,
And I have heard the voice of thy words, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:9 -
I am clean, without transgression;
I am innocent, neither is there iniquity in me:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:10 -
Behold, he findeth occasions against me,
He counteth me for his enemy;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:11 -
He putteth my feet in the stocks,
He marketh all my paths.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:12 -
Behold, I will answer thee, in this thou art not just;
For God is greater than man.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:13 -
Why dost thou strive against him,
For that he giveth not account of any of his matters?
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:14 -
For God speaketh once,
Yea twice, though man regardeth it not.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:15 -
In a dream, in a vision of the night,
When deep sleep falleth upon men,
In slumberings upon the bed;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:16 -
Then he openeth the ears of men,
And sealeth their instruction,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:17 -
That he may withdraw man from his purpose,
And hide pride from man;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:18 -
He keepeth back his soul from the pit,
And his life from perishing by the sword.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:19 -
He is chastened also with pain upon his bed,
And with continual strife in his bones;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:20 -
So that his life abhorreth bread,
And his soul dainty food.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:21 -
His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen;
And his bones that were not seen stick out.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:22 -
Yea, his soul draweth near unto the pit,
And his life to the destroyers.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:23 -
If there be with him an angel,
An interpreter, one among a thousand,
To show unto man what is right for him;
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:24 -
Then God is gracious unto him, and saith,
Deliver him from going down to the pit,
I have found a ransom.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:25 -
His flesh shall be fresher than a child’s;
He returneth to the days of his youth.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:26 -
He prayeth unto God, and he is favorable unto him,
So that he seeth his face with joy:
And he restoreth unto man his righteousness.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:27 -
He singeth before men, and saith,
I have sinned, and perverted that which was right,
And it profited me not:
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:28 -
He hath redeemed my soul from going into the pit,
And my life shall behold the light.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:29 -
Lo, all these things doth God work,
Twice, yea thrice, with a man,
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:30 -
To bring back his soul from the pit,
That he may be enlightened with the light of the living.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:31 -
Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me:
Hold thy peace, and I will speak.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:32 -
If thou hast anything to say, answer me:
Speak, for I desire to justify thee.
Unchecked Copy BoxJob 33:33 -
If not, hearken thou unto me:
Hold thy peace, and I will teach thee wisdom.
