Job 23Darby Translation (DARBY)

23 And Job answered and said,

Even to-day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.

Oh that I knew where I might find him, that I might come to his seat!

I would order the cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments;

I would know the words he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.

Would he plead against me with [his] great power? Nay; but he would give heed unto me.

There would an upright man reason with him; and I should be delivered for ever from my judge.

Lo, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I do not perceive him;

On the left hand, where he doth work, but I behold [him] not; he hideth himself on the right hand, and I see [him] not.

10 But he knoweth the way that I take; he trieth me, I shall come forth as gold.

11 My foot hath held to his steps; his way have I kept, and not turned aside.

12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have laid up the words of his mouth more than the purpose of my own heart.

13 But he is in one [mind], and who can turn him? And what his soul desireth, that will he do.

14 For he will perform [what] is appointed for me; and many such things are with him.

15 Therefore am I troubled at his presence; I consider, and I am afraid of him.

16 For God hath made my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth me;

17 Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he hidden the gloom from me.
