Job 33

GNTA 1 And now, Job, listen carefully to all that I have to say. NIV 1 “But now, Job, listen to my words; pay attention to everything I say. GNTA 2 I am ready to say what's on my mind. NIV 2 I am about to open my mouth; my words are on the tip of my tongue. GNTA 3 All my words are sincere, and I am speaking the truth. NIV 3 My words come from an upright heart; my lips sincerely speak what I know. GNTA 4 God's spirit made me and gave me life. NIV 4 The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life. GNTA 5 Answer me if you can. Prepare your arguments. NIV 5 Answer me then, if you can; stand up and argue your case before me. GNTA 6 You and I are the same in God's sight, both of us were formed from clay. NIV 6 I am the same as you in God’s sight; I too am a piece of clay. GNTA 7 So you have no reason to fear me; I will not overpower you. NIV 7 No fear of me should alarm you, nor should my hand be heavy on you. GNTA 8 Now this is what I heard you say: NIV 8 “But you have said in my hearing— I heard the very words— GNTA 9 "I am not guilty; I have done nothing wrong. I am innocent and free from sin. NIV 9 ‘I am pure, I have done no wrong; I am clean and free from sin. GNTA 10 But God finds excuses for attacking me and treats me like an enemy. NIV 10 Yet God has found fault with me; he considers me his enemy. GNTA 11 He binds chains on my feet; he watches every move I make." NIV 11 He fastens my feet in shackles; he keeps close watch on all my paths.’ GNTA 12 But I tell you, Job, you are wrong. God is greater than any human being. NIV 12 “But I tell you, in this you are not right, for God is greater than any mortal. GNTA 13 Why do you accuse God of never answering our complaints? NIV 13 Why do you complain to him that he responds to no one’s words ? GNTA 14 Although God speaks again and again, no one pays attention to what he says. NIV 14 For God does speak—now one way, now another— though no one perceives it. GNTA 15 At night when people are asleep, God speaks in dreams and visions. NIV 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, GNTA 16 He makes them listen to what he says, and they are frightened at his warnings. NIV 16 he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, GNTA 17 God speaks to make them stop their sinning and to save them from becoming proud. NIV 17 to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, GNTA 18 He will not let them be destroyed; he saves them from death itself. NIV 18 to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword. GNTA 19 God corrects us by sending sickness and filling our bodies with pain. NIV 19 “Or someone may be chastened on a bed of pain with constant distress in their bones, GNTA 20 Those who are sick lose their appetites, and even the finest food looks revolting. NIV 20 so that their body finds food repulsive and their soul loathes the choicest meal. GNTA 21 Their bodies waste away to nothing; you can see all their bones; NIV 21 Their flesh wastes away to nothing, and their bones, once hidden, now stick out. GNTA 22 they are about to go to the world of the dead. NIV 22 They draw near to the pit, and their life to the messengers of death. GNTA 23 Perhaps an angel may come to their aid - one of God's thousands of angels, who remind us of our duty. 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, GNTA 24 In mercy the angel will say, "Release them! They are not to go down to the world of the dead. Here is the ransom to set them free." 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— GNTA 25 Their bodies will grow young and strong again; NIV 25 let their flesh be renewed like a child’s; let them be restored as in the days of their youth’— GNTA 26 when they pray, God will answer; they will worship God with joy; God will set things right for them again. 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. GNTA 27 Each one will say in public, "I have sinned. I have not done right, but God spared me. 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. GNTA 28 He kept me from going to the world of the dead, and I am still alive." NIV 28 God has delivered me from going down to the pit, and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.’ GNTA 29 God does all this again and again; NIV 29 “God does all these things to a person— twice, even three times— GNTA 30 each one saves a person's life, and gives him the joy of living. NIV 30 to turn them back from the pit, that the light of life may shine on them. GNTA 31 Now, Job, listen to what I am saying; be quiet and let me speak. NIV 31 “Pay attention, Job, and listen to me; be silent, and I will speak. GNTA 32 But if you have something to say, let me hear it; I would gladly admit you are in the right. NIV 32 If you have anything to say, answer me; speak up, for I want to vindicate you. GNTA 33 But if not, be quiet and listen to me, and I will teach you how to be wise. NIV 33 But if not, then listen to me; be silent, and I will teach you wisdom.”
