Job Chapter 9

, . 1 {S} Then Job answered and said:
, -; - -. 2 Of a truth I know that it is so; and how can man be just with God?
-, -- -, -. 3 If one should desire to contend with Him, he could not answer Him one of a thousand.
, -- - , . 4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength; who hath hardened himself against Him, and prospered?
, -- . 5 Who removeth the mountains, and they know it not, when He overturneth them in His anger.
, ; , . 6 Who shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.
, ; . 7 Who commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.
; , - . 8 Who alone stretcheth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.
-, ; . 9 Who maketh the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.
, - ; , - . 10 Who doeth great things past finding out; yea, marvellous things without number.
, ; , - . 11 Lo, He goeth by me, and I see Him not. He passeth on also, but I perceive Him not.
, ; - , -. 12 Behold, He snatcheth away, who can hinder Him? Who will say unto Him: 'What doest Thou?'
, - ; , . 13 God will not withdraw His anger; the helpers of Rahab did stoop under Him.
, - ; . 14 How much less shall I answer Him, and choose out my arguments with Him?
-, ; , . 15 Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer; I would make supplication to Him that contendeth with me.
- -- -, - . 16 If I had called, and He had answered me; yet would I not believe that He would hearken unto my voice--
- ; . 17 He that would break me with a tempest, and multiply my wounds without cause;
-, : , . 18 That would not suffer me to take my breath, but fill me with bitterness.
- ; -, . 19 If it be a matter of strength, lo, He is mighty! and if of justice, who will appoint me a time?
-, ; -, . 20 Though I be righteous, mine own mouth shall condemn me; though I be innocent, He shall prove me perverse.
-, - ; . 21 I am innocent--I regard not myself, I despise my life.
, : - -- , . 22 It is all one--therefore I say: He destroyeth the innocent and the wicked.
-, -- . 23 If the scourge slay suddenly, He will mock at the calamity of the guiltless.
, --- - ;
- -.
24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked; he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; {N}
if it be not He, who then is it?
, -; , - . 25 Now my days are swifter than a runner; they flee away, they see no good.
, - ; , -. 26 They are passed away as the swift ships; as the vulture that swoopeth on the prey.
-, ; . 27 If I say: 'I will forget my complaint, I will put off my sad countenance, and be of good cheer',
-; , - . 28 I am afraid of all my pains, I know that Thou wilt not hold me guiltless.
; -, . 29 I shall be condemned; why then do I labour in vain?
- - (-) ; , . 30 If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;
, ; , . 31 Yet wilt Thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me.
-- ; , . 32 For He is not a man, as I am, that I should answer Him, that we should come together in judgment.
- -- -. 33 There is no arbiter betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.
; , -. 34 Let Him take His rod away from me, and let not His terror make me afraid;
, : - , . 35 Then would I speak, and not fear Him; for I am not so with myself.
