God has delivered me from going down to the pit, and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.’
“God does all these things to a person— twice, even three times—
to turn them back from the pit, that the light of life may shine on them.
“Pay attention, Job, and listen to me; be silent, and I will speak.
If you have anything to say, answer me; speak up, for I want to vindicate you.
But if not, then listen to me; be silent, and I will teach you wisdom.”
