Book 29 : KETUVIM - JOB - Chapter 023


Then Job answered and said


Even to-day is my complaint bitter; my hand is become heavy because of my groaning


Oh that I knew where I might find Him, that I might come even to His seat


I would order my cause before Him, and fill my mouth with arguments


I would know the words which He would answer me, and understand what He would say unto me


Would He contend with me in His great power? Nay; but He would give heed unto me


There the upright might reason with Him; so should I be delivered for ever from my Judge


Behold, I go forward, but He is not there, and backward, but I cannot perceive Him


On the left hand, when He doth work, but I cannot behold Him, He turneth Himself to the right hand, but I cannot see Him


For He knoweth the way that I take; when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold


My foot hath held fast to His steps, His way have I kept, and turned not aside


I have not gone back from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured up the words of His mouth more than my necessary food


But He is at one with Himself, and who can turn Him? And what His soul desireth, even that He doeth


For He will perform that which is appointed for me; and many such things are with Him


Therefore am I affrighted at His presence; when I consider, I am afraid of Him


Yea, G-d hath made my heart faint, and the Almighty hath affrighted me


Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither did He cover the thick darkness from my face
