Job Replies: My Complaint Is Bitter | Job 23


If I go forward, he is not there; or backward, I cannot perceive him; on the left he hides, and I cannot behold him; I turn to the right, but I cannot see him.






Job Replies: My Complaint Is Bitter


Job 23:1 Then Job answered:

2 “Today also my complaint is bitter;

his hand is heavy despite my groaning.

3 Oh, that I knew where I might find him,

that I might come even to his dwelling!

4 I would lay my case before him,

and fill my mouth with arguments.

5 I would learn what he would answer me,

and understand what he would say to me.

6 Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power?

No; but he would give heed to me.

7 There an upright person could reason with him,

and I should be acquitted forever by my judge.

8 “If I go forward, he is not there;

or backward, I cannot perceive him;

9 on the left he hides, and I cannot behold him;

I turn to the right, but I cannot see him.

10 But he knows the way that I take;

when he has tested me, I shall come out like gold.

11 My foot has held fast to his steps;

I have kept his way and have not turned aside.

12 I have not departed from the commandment of his lips;

I have treasured ina my bosom the words of his mouth.

13 But he stands alone and who can dissuade him?

What he desires, that he does.

14 For he will complete what he appoints for me;

and many such things are in his mind.

15 Therefore I am terrified at his presence;

when I consider, I am in dread of him.

16 God has made my heart faint;

the Almightya has terrified me;

17 If only I could vanish in darkness,

and thick darkness would cover my face!a
