Young's Literal Translation
When they lifted up their eyes at a distance and did not recognize him, they raised their voices and wept. And each of them tore his robe and they threw dust over their heads toward the sky.
"Oh that my grief were actually weighed And laid in the balances together with my calamity!
"If I say, 'My bed will comfort me, My couch will ease my complaint,'
"Why then do You not pardon my transgression And take away my iniquity? For now I will lie down in the dust; And You will seek me, but I will not be."
'If I am wicked, woe to me! And if I am righteous, I dare not lift up my head. I am sated with disgrace and conscious of my misery.
"Then, indeed, you could lift up your face without moral defect, And you would be steadfast and not fear.
"Will you show partiality for Him? Will you contend for God?
"He will surely reprove you If you secretly show partiality .
"Why should I take my flesh in my teeth And put my life in my hands?
"Bear with me that I may speak; Then after I have spoken, you may mock.
"They sing to the timbrel and harp And rejoice at the sound of the flute.
"But the earth belongs to the mighty man, And the honorable man dwells in it.
"For then you will delight in the Almighty And lift up your face to God.
"They cause the poor to go about naked without clothing, And they take away the sheaves from the hungry.
Then Job continued his discourse and said,
"The east wind carries him away, and he is gone, For it whirls him away from his place.
And Job again took up his discourse and said,
"You lift me up to the wind and cause me to ride; And You dissolve me in a storm.
Surely I would carry it on my shoulder, I would bind it to myself like a crown.
"Let me now be partial to no one, Nor flatter any man.
"For I do not know how to flatter, Else my Maker would soon take me away.
Who shows no partiality to princes Nor regards the rich above the poor, For they all are the work of His hands?
"For has anyone said to God, 'I have borne chastisement; I will not offend anymore;
"I will fetch my knowledge from afar, And I will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
"Surely the mountains bring him food, And all the beasts of the field play there.
"Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, and go to My servant Job, and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves, and My servant Job will pray for you. For I will accept him so that I may not do with you according to your folly, because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has."
So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job.
