Job 332 Behold, here I am with open mouth; here is my tongue talking. 3 My words shall express the uprightness of my heart, and my lips shall speak what they know with utter sincerity. 4 the Spirit of God that made me , and the breath of the Almighty that gives me life . 5 Answer me now, if you can; set your words in order before me; take your stand. 6 Behold, I am toward God and before Him even as you are; I also am formed out of the clay . 7 See my terror ; I shall not make you afraid, neither shall my pressure be heavy upon you. 8 Surely you have spoken in my hearing, and I have heard the voice of your words, saying, 9 I am clean, without transgression; I am innocent, neither is there iniquity in me. 10 But behold, God finds occasions against me and causes of alienation and indifference; He counts me as His enemy. 11 He puts my feet in the stocks; He watches all my paths . 12 I reply to you, Behold, in this you are not just; God is superior to man. 13 Why do you contend against Him? For He does not give account of any of His actions. 14 For God speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it . 15 in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed, 16 Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction , 17 That He may withdraw man from his purpose and cut off pride from him . 18 He holds him back from the pit , and his life from perishing by the sword . 19 he is chastened with pain upon his bed and with continual strife in his bones or while all his bones are firmly set, 20 So that his desire makes him loathe food, and even dainty dishes . 21 His flesh is so wasted away that it cannot be seen, and his bones that were not seen stick out. 22 Yes, his soul draws near to corruption, and his life to the inflicters of death (the destroyers). 23 if there is for the hearer a messenger or an angel, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show to man what is right for him , 24 Then is gracious to him and says, Deliver him from going down into the pit ; I have found a ransom (a price of redemption, an atonement)! 25 flesh shall be restored; it becomes fresher and more tender than a child's; he returns to the days of his youth. 26 He prays to God, and He is favorable to him, so that he sees His face with joy; for restores to him his righteousness (his uprightness and right standing with God--with its joys). 27 He looks upon other men or sings out to them, I have sinned and perverted that which was right, and it did not profit me, or He did not requite me ! 28 has redeemed my life from going down to the pit , and my life shall see the light! 29 Behold, God does all these things twice, yes, three times, with a man, 30 To bring back his life from the pit , that he may be enlightened with the light of the living. 31 Give heed, O Job, listen to me; hold your peace, and I will speak. 32 If you have anything to say, answer me; speak, for I desire to justify you. 33 If not , listen to me; hold your peace, and I will teach you wisdom.
