Job 9:25-35 (Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha)

View In My Bible

Job wants an arbitrator

25 My days are swifter than a runner; they flee and don't experience good. 26 They sweep by like ships made of reeds, as an eagle swoops on prey. 27 If I say, "I'll forget my lament, put on a different face so I can smile," 28 I'm still afraid of all my suffering; I know that you won't declare me innocent. 29 I myself am thought guilty; why have I tried so hard in vain? 30 If I wash myself with snow, purify my hands with soap, 31 then you'll hurl me into a slimy pit so that my clothes detest me. 32 God is not a man like me—someone I could answer— so that we could come together in court. 33 Oh, thata there were a mediator between us; he would lay his hand on both of us, 34 remove his rod from me, so his fury wouldn't frighten me. 35 Then I would speak—unafraid— for I'm not that way.
