Then Job answered the LORD and said,
"I know that 1You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.
'Who is this that 2hides counsel without knowledge?' "Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things 3too wonderful for me, which I did not know."
'Hear, now, and I will speak; I will 4ask You, and You instruct me.'
"I have 5heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my 6eye sees You;
Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes."
