CEBA 1 Job answered the LORD: NIV 1 Then Job replied to the LORD: CEBA 2 I know you can do anything; no plan of yours can be opposed successfully. NIV 2 “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted. CEBA 3 You said,"Who is this darkening counsel without knowledge?" I have indeed spoken about things I didn't understand, wonders beyond my comprehension. NIV 3 You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. CEBA 4 You said,"Listen and I will speak; I will question you and you will inform me." NIV 4 “You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’ CEBA 5 My ears had heard about you, but now my eyes have seen you.

NIV 7 After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has. CEBA 8 So now, take seven bulls and seven rams, go to my servant Job, and prepare an entirely burned offering for yourselves. Job my servant will pray for you, and I will act favorably by not making fools of you because you didn't speak correctly, as did my servant Job." NIV 8 So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has.” CEBA 9 Eliphaz from Teman, Bildad from Shuah, and Zophar from Naamah did what the LORD told them; and the LORD acted favorably toward Job.
