Job 33

CSB 1 But now, Job, pay attention to my speech, and listen to all my words. NIV 1 “But now, Job, listen to my words; pay attention to everything I say. CSB 2 I am going to open my mouth; my tongue will form words on my palate. NIV 2 I am about to open my mouth; my words are on the tip of my tongue. CSB 3 My words [come from] my upright heart, and my lips speak what they know with sincerity. NIV 3 My words come from an upright heart; my lips sincerely speak what I know. CSB 4 The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. NIV 4 The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life. CSB 5 Refute me if you can. Prepare your case against me; take your stand. NIV 5 Answer me then, if you can; stand up and argue your case before me. CSB 6 I am just like you before God; I was also pinched off from [a piece of] clay. NIV 6 I am the same as you in God’s sight; I too am a piece of clay. CSB 7 Fear of me should not terrify you; the pressure I exert against you will be light. NIV 7 No fear of me should alarm you, nor should my hand be heavy on you. CSB 8 Surely you have spoken in my hearing, and I have heard these very words: NIV 8 “But you have said in my hearing— I heard the very words— CSB 9 "I am pure, without transgression; I am clean and have no guilt. NIV 9 ‘I am pure, I have done no wrong; I am clean and free from sin. CSB 10 But He finds reasons to oppose me; He regards me as his enemy. NIV 10 Yet God has found fault with me; he considers me his enemy. CSB 11 He puts my feet in the stocks; He stands watch over all my paths." NIV 11 He fastens my feet in shackles; he keeps close watch on all my paths.’ CSB 12 But I tell you that you are wrong in this [matter], since God is greater than man. NIV 12 “But I tell you, in this you are not right, for God is greater than any mortal. CSB 13 Why do you take Him to court for not answering anything a person asks? NIV 13 Why do you complain to him that he responds to no one’s words ? CSB 14 For God speaks time and again, but a person may not notice it. NIV 14 For God does speak—now one way, now another— though no one perceives it. CSB 15 In a dream, a vision in the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber on [their] beds, NIV 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, CSB 16 He uncovers their ears at that time and terrifies them with warnings, NIV 16 he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, CSB 17 in order to turn a person [from his] actions and suppress his pride. NIV 17 to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, CSB 18 God spares his soul from the Pit, his life from crossing the river [of death]. NIV 18 to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword. CSB 19 A person may be disciplined on his bed with pain and constant distress in his bones, NIV 19 “Or someone may be chastened on a bed of pain with constant distress in their bones, CSB 20 so that he detests bread, and his soul [despises his] favorite food. NIV 20 so that their body finds food repulsive and their soul loathes the choicest meal. CSB 21 His flesh wastes away to nothing, and his unseen bones stick out. NIV 21 Their flesh wastes away to nothing, and their bones, once hidden, now stick out. CSB 22 He draws near the Pit, and his life to the executioners. NIV 22 They draw near to the pit, and their life to the messengers of death. CSB 23 If there is an angel on his side, one mediator out of a thousand, to tell a person what is right for him NIV 23 Yet if there is an angel at their side, a messenger, one out of a thousand, sent to tell them how to be upright, CSB 24 and to be gracious to him and say, "Spare him from going down to the Pit; I have found a ransom," NIV 24 and he is gracious to that person and says to God, ‘Spare them from going down to the pit; I have found a ransom for them— CSB 25 then his flesh will be healthier than in his youth, and he will return to the days of his youthful vigor. NIV 25 let their flesh be renewed like a child’s; let them be restored as in the days of their youth’— CSB 26 He will pray to God, and God will delight in him. That man will behold His face with a shout of joy, and God will restore his righteousness to him. NIV 26 then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God’s face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being. CSB 27 He will look at men and say, "I have sinned and perverted what was right; yet I did not get what I deserved. NIV 27 And they will go to others and say, ‘I have sinned, I have perverted what is right, but I did not get what I deserved. CSB 28 He redeemed my soul from going down to the Pit, and I will continue to see the light." NIV 28 God has delivered me from going down to the pit, and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.’ CSB 29 God certainly does all these things two or three times to a man NIV 29 “God does all these things to a person— twice, even three times— CSB 30 in order to turn him back from the Pit, so he may shine with the light of life. NIV 30 to turn them back from the pit, that the light of life may shine on them. CSB 31 Pay attention, Job, and listen to me. Be quiet, and I will speak. NIV 31 “Pay attention, Job, and listen to me; be silent, and I will speak. CSB 32 But if you have something to say, answer me; speak, for I would like to justify you. NIV 32 If you have anything to say, answer me; speak up, for I want to vindicate you. CSB 33 If not, then listen to me; be quiet, and I will teach you wisdom. NIV 33 But if not, then listen to me; be silent, and I will teach you wisdom.”
