to turn back6 his soul from the pit,7 that the light of life8 may shine on him.9
"Pay attention, Job, and listen10 to me;11 be silent,12 and I will speak.
If you have anything to say, answer me;13 speak up, for I want you to be cleared.14
But if not, then listen to me;15 be silent,16 and I will teach you wisdom.17"
