Then Job answered the Lord:
"I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
"Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
"Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you declare to me.'
I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you;
therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes."
