Job
Chapter 9

9:1 And Job answereth and saith: --

9:2 Truly I have known that `it is' so, And what -- is man righteous with God?

9:3 If he delight to strive with Him -- He doth not answer him one of a thousand.

9:4 Wise in heart and strong in power -- Who hath hardened toward Him and is at peace?

9:5 Who is removing mountains, And they have not known, Who hath overturned them in His anger.

9:6 Who is shaking earth from its place, And its pillars move themselves.

9:7 Who is speaking to the sun, and it riseth not, And the stars He sealeth up.

9:8 Stretching out the heavens by Himself, And treading on the heights of the sea,

9:9 Making Osh, Kesil, and Kimah, And the inner chambers of the south.

9:10 Doing great things till there is no searching, And wonderful, till there is no numbering.

9:11 Lo, He goeth over by me, and I see not, And He passeth on, and I attend not to it.

9:12 Lo, He snatches away, who bringeth it back? Who saith unto Him, `What dost Thou?'

9:13 God doth not turn back His anger, Under Him bowed have proud helpers.

9:14 How much less do I -- I answer Him? Choose out my words with Him?

9:15 Whom, though I were righteous, I answer not, For my judgment I make supplication.

9:16 Though I had called and He answereth me, I do not believe that He giveth ear `to' my voice.

9:17 Because with a tempest He bruiseth me, And hath multiplied my wounds for nought.

9:18 He permitteth me not to refresh my spirit, But filleth me with bitter things.

9:19 If of power, lo, the Strong One; And if of judgment -- who doth convene me?

9:20 If I be righteous, Mine mouth doth declare me wicked, Perfect I am! -- it declareth me perverse.

9:21 Perfect I am! -- I know not my soul, I despise my life.

9:22 It is the same thing, therefore I said, `The perfect and the wicked He is consuming.'

9:23 If a scourge doth put to death suddenly, At the trial of the innocent He laugheth.

9:24 Earth hath been given Into the hand of the wicked one. The face of its judges he covereth, If not -- where, who `is' he?

9:25 My days have been swifter than a runner, They have fled, they have not seen good,

9:26 They have passed on with ships of reed, As an eagle darteth on food.

9:27 Though I say, `I forget my talking, I forsake my corner, and I brighten up!'

9:28 I have been afraid of all my griefs, I have known that Thou dost not acquit me.

9:29 I -- I am become wicked; why `is' this? `In' vain I labour.

9:30 If I have washed myself with snow-water, And purified with soap my hands,

9:31 Then in corruption Thou dost dip me, And my garments have abominated me.

9:32 But if a man like myself -- I answer him, We come together into judgment.

9:33 If there were between us an umpire, He doth place his hand on us both.

9:34 He doth turn aside from off me his rod, And His terror doth not make me afraid,

9:35 I speak, and do not fear Him, But I am not right with myself.
