- And Job answereth and saith: --
- Truly I have known that [it is] so, And what -- is man righteous with God?
- If he delight to strive with Him -- He doth not answer him one of a thousand.
- Wise in heart and strong in power -- Who hath hardened toward Him and is at peace?
- Who is removing mountains, And they have not known, Who hath overturned them in His anger.
- Who is shaking earth from its place, And its pillars move themselves.
- Who is speaking to the sun, and it riseth not, And the stars He sealeth up.
- Stretching out the heavens by Himself, And treading on the heights of the sea,
- Making Osh, Kesil, and Kimah, And the inner chambers of the south.
- Doing great things till there is no searching, And wonderful, till there is no numbering.
- Lo, He goeth over by me, and I see not, And He passeth on, and I attend not to it.
- Lo, He snatches away, who bringeth it back? Who saith unto Him, `What dost Thou?'
- God doth not turn back His anger, Under Him bowed have proud helpers.
- How much less do I -- I answer Him? Choose out my words with Him?
- Whom, though I were righteous, I answer not, For my judgment I make supplication.
- Though I had called and He answereth me, I do not believe that He giveth ear [to] my voice.
- Because with a tempest He bruiseth me, And hath multiplied my wounds for nought.
- He permitteth me not to refresh my spirit, But filleth me with bitter things.
- If of power, lo, the Strong One; And if of judgment -- who doth convene me?
- If I be righteous, Mine mouth doth declare me wicked, Perfect I am! -- it declareth me perverse.
- Perfect I am! -- I know not my soul, I despise my life.
- It is the same thing, therefore I said, `The perfect and the wicked He is consuming.'
- If a scourge doth put to death suddenly, At the trial of the innocent He laugheth.
- Earth hath been given Into the hand of the wicked one. The face of its judges he covereth, If not -- where, who [is] he?
- My days have been swifter than a runner, They have fled, they have not seen good,
- They have passed on with ships of reed, As an eagle darteth on food.
- Though I say, `I forget my talking, I forsake my corner, and I brighten up!'
- I have been afraid of all my griefs, I have known that Thou dost not acquit me.
- I -- I am become wicked; why [is] this? [In] vain I labour.
- If I have washed myself with snow-water, And purified with soap my hands,
- Then in corruption Thou dost dip me, And my garments have abominated me.
- But if a man like myself -- I answer him, We come together into judgment.
- If there were between us an umpire, He doth place his hand on us both.
- He doth turn aside from off me his rod, And His terror doth not make me afraid,
- I speak, and do not fear Him, But I am not right with myself.
- My soul hath been weary of my life, I leave off my talking to myself, I speak in the bitterness of my soul.
- I say unto God, `Do not condemn me, Let me know why Thou dost strive [with] me.
- Is it good for Thee that Thou dost oppress? That Thou despisest the labour of Thy hands, And on the counsel of the wicked hast shone?
- Eyes of flesh hast Thou? As man seeth -- seest Thou?
- As the days of man [are] Thy days? Thy years as the days of a man?
- That Thou inquirest for mine iniquity, And for my sin seekest?
- For Thou knowest that I am not wicked, And there is no deliverer from Thy hand.
- Thy hands have taken pains about me, And they make me together round about, And Thou swallowest me up!
- Remember, I pray Thee, That as clay Thou hast made me, And unto dust Thou dost bring me back.
- Dost Thou not as milk pour me out? And as cheese curdle me?
- Skin and flesh Thou dost put on me, And with bones and sinews dost fence me.
- Life and kindness Thou hast done with me. And Thy inspection hath preserved my spirit.
- And these Thou hast laid up in Thy heart, I have known that this [is] with Thee.
- If I sinned, then Thou hast observed me, And from mine iniquity dost not acquit me,
- If I have done wickedly -- wo to me, And righteously -- I lift not up my head, Full of shame -- then see my affliction,
- And it riseth -- as a lion Thou huntest me. And Thou turnest back -- Thou shewest Thyself wonderful in me.
- Thou renewest Thy witnesses against me, And dost multiply Thine anger with me, Changes and warfare [are] with me.
- And why from the womb Hast Thou brought me forth? I expire, and the eye doth not see me.
- As I had not been, I am, From the belly to the grave I am brought,
- Are not my days few? Cease then, and put from me, And I brighten up a little,
- Before I go, and return not, Unto a land of darkness and death-shade,
- A land of obscurity as thick darkness, Death-shade -- and no order, And the shining [is] as thick darkness.'
