Job 33:8-33

CEB 8 You certainly said in my hearing; I heard the sound of your words: NIV 8 “But you have said in my hearing— I heard the very words— CEB 9 "I'm pure, without sin; I'm innocent, without offense. NIV 9 ‘I am pure, I have done no wrong; I am clean and free from sin. CEB 10 Notice that he invents arguments against me; he considers me his enemy, NIV 10 Yet God has found fault with me; he considers me his enemy. CEB 11 ties up my feet, watches all my paths." NIV 11 He fastens my feet in shackles; he keeps close watch on all my paths.’ CEB 12 Now you're wrong about this; I'll answer you, for God is greater than anybody. NIV 12 “But I tell you, in this you are not right, for God is greater than any mortal. CEB 13 Why do you contend with him, saying that he doesn't answer all your words? NIV 13 Why do you complain to him that he responds to no one’s words ? CEB 14 God speaks in one way, in two ways, but no one perceives it. NIV 14 For God does speak—now one way, now another— though no one perceives it. CEB 15 In the dream, a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon humans, during their slumber on a bed, NIV 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, CEB 16 then he opens people's ears, scares them with warnings, NIV 16 he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, CEB 17 to turn them from a deed and to smother human pride. NIV 17 to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, CEB 18 He keeps one from the pit, a life from perishing by the sword. NIV 18 to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword. CEB 19 Or a person may be disciplined by pain while in bed, bones ever aching NIV 19 “Or someone may be chastened on a bed of pain with constant distress in their bones, CEB 20 until a person loathes food, an appetite rejects a delicacy; NIV 20 so that their body finds food repulsive and their soul loathes the choicest meal. CEB 21 the flesh wastes away, no longer visible; the bones, once hidden, protrude. NIV 21 Their flesh wastes away to nothing, and their bones, once hidden, now stick out. CEB 22 A life approaches the pit; its very being draws near the death dealers. NIV 22 They draw near to the pit, and their life to the messengers of death. CEB 23 Surely there's a messenger for this person, a mediator, one out of a thousand to declare one's integrity to another 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, CEB 24 so that God has compassion on that person and says, "Rescue this one 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— CEB 25 That person's flesh is renewed like a child's; they regain their youth. NIV 25 let their flesh be renewed like a child’s; let them be restored as in the days of their youth’— CEB 26 They pray to God, and God is pleased with them; they behold God's presence with a joyful shout. God rewards a person's righteousness. 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. CEB 27 They sing before people and say: "I have sinned, perverted justice, but didn't experience the consequences. 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. CEB 28 He ransomed me from crossing into the pit; my life beholds light." NIV 28 God has delivered me from going down to the pit, and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.’ CEB 29 Look, God does all this, twice, three times with persons NIV 29 “God does all these things to a person— twice, even three times— CEB 30 to bring them back from the pit, to shine with life's light. NIV 30 to turn them back from the pit, that the light of life may shine on them. CEB 31 Listen, Job; hear me; be quiet, and I will speak. NIV 31 “Pay attention, Job, and listen to me; be silent, and I will speak. CEB 32 If you have words, answer me; speak, for I want to be innocent. NIV 32 If you have anything to say, answer me; speak up, for I want to vindicate you. CEB 33 If not, you must hear 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.”
