Then Job answered the Lord.
I know, Lord, that you are all-powerful; that you can do everything you want.
You ask how I dare question your wisdom 1 when I am so very ignorant. I talked about things I did not understand, about marvels too great for me to know.
You told me to listen while you spoke 2 and to try to answer your questions.
In the past I knew only what others had told me, but now I have seen you with my own eyes.
So I am ashamed of all I have said and repent in dust and ashes.
