Then Job replied to the LORD:
"I know that you can do all things;1 no plan of yours can be thwarted.2
[You asked,] 'Who is this that obscures my counsel without knowledge?'3 Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.4
["You said,] 'Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.'5
My ears had heard of you6 but now my eyes have seen you.7
Therefore I despise myself8 and repent9 in dust and ashes."10
