Job 42:1-6

Job's Confession

1 Then Job answered the LORD and said,
2 "I know that 1You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.
3 '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."
4 'Hear, now, and I will speak; I will 4ask You, and You instruct me.'
5 "I have 5heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my 6eye sees You;
6 Therefore * I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes."
