Then Job answered the LORD and said:
"I know that you can 1do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
2'Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?' Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things 3too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
'Hear, and I will speak; 4I will question you, and you make it known 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 5dust and ashes."
