"God does all these things to a man1-- twice, even three times2--
to turn back3 his soul from the pit,4 that the light of life5 may shine on him.6
"Pay attention, Job, and listen7 to me;8 be silent,9 and I will speak.
If you have anything to say, answer me;10 speak up, for I want you to be cleared.11
But if not, then listen to me;12 be silent,13 and I will teach you wisdom.14"
