Job 9

RHE 1 And Job answered, and said: NIV 1 Then Job replied: RHE 2 Indeed I know it is so, and that man cannot be justified, compared with God. NIV 2 “Indeed, I know that this is true. But how can mere mortals prove their innocence before God? RHE 3 If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one for a thousand. NIV 3 Though they wished to dispute with him, they could not answer him one time out of a thousand. RHE 4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath resisted him, and hath had peace? NIV 4 His wisdom is profound, his power is vast. Who has resisted him and come out unscathed? RHE 5 Who hath removed mountains, and they whom he overthrew in his wrath, knew it not. NIV 5 He moves mountains without their knowing it and overturns them in his anger. RHE 6 Who shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble. NIV 6 He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble. RHE 7 Who commandeth the sun, and it riseth not: and shutteth up the stars, as it were, under a seal: NIV 7 He speaks to the sun and it does not shine; he seals off the light of the stars. RHE 8 Who alone spreadeth out the heavens, and walketh upon the waves of the sea NIV 8 He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea. RHE 9 Who maketh Arcturus, and Orion, and Hyades, and the inner parts of the south. NIV 9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the constellations of the south. RHE 10 Who doth things great and incomprehensible, and wonderful, of which there is no number. NIV 10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. RHE 11 If he come to me, I shall not see him: if he depart, I shall not understand. NIV 11 When he passes me, I cannot see him; when he goes by, I cannot perceive him. RHE 12 If he examine on a sudden, who shall answer him? or who can say: Why dost thou so? NIV 12 If he snatches away, who can stop him? Who can say to him, ‘What are you doing?’ RHE 13 God, whose wrath no man can resist, and under whom they stoop that bear up the world. NIV 13 God does not restrain his anger; even the cohorts of Rahab cowered at his feet. RHE 14 What am I then, that I should answer him, and have words with him? NIV 14 “How then can I dispute with him? How can I find words to argue with him? RHE 15 I, who although I should have any just thing, would not answer, but would make supplication to my judge. NIV 15 Though I were innocent, I could not answer him; I could only plead with my Judge for mercy. RHE 16 And if he should hear me when I call, I should not believe that he had heard my voice. NIV 16 Even if I summoned him and he responded, I do not believe he would give me a hearing. RHE 17 For he shall crush me in a whirlwind, and multiply my wounds even without cause. NIV 17 He would crush me with a storm and multiply my wounds for no reason. RHE 18 He alloweth not my spirit to rest, and he filleth me with bitterness. NIV 18 He would not let me catch my breath but would overwhelm me with misery. RHE 19 If strength be demanded, he is most strong: if equity of judgment, no man dare bear witness for me. NIV 19 If it is a matter of strength, he is mighty! And if it is a matter of justice, who can challenge him ? RHE 20 If I would justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me: if I would shew myself innocent, he shall prove me wicked. NIV 20 Even if I were innocent, my mouth would condemn me; if I were blameless, it would pronounce me guilty. RHE 21 Although I should be simple, even this my soul shall be ignorant of, and I shall be weary of my life. NIV 21 “Although I am blameless, I have no concern for myself; I despise my own life. RHE 22 One thing there is that I have spoken, both the innocent and the wicked he consumeth. NIV 22 It is all the same; that is why I say, ‘He destroys both the blameless and the wicked.’ RHE 23 If he scourge, let him kill at once, and not laugh at the pains of the innocent. NIV 23 When a scourge brings sudden death, he mocks the despair of the innocent. RHE 24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked, he covereth the face of the judges thereof: and if it be not he, who is it then? NIV 24 When a land falls into the hands of the wicked, he blindfolds its judges. If it is not he, then who is it? RHE 25 My days have been swifter than a post: they have fled away and have not seen good. NIV 25 “My days are swifter than a runner; they fly away without a glimpse of joy. RHE 26 They have passed by as ships carrying fruits, as an eagle flying to the prey. NIV 26 They skim past like boats of papyrus, like eagles swooping down on their prey. RHE 27 If I say: I will not speak so: I change my face, and am tormented with sorrow. NIV 27 If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will change my expression, and smile,’ RHE 28 I feared all my works, knowing that thou didst not spare the offender. NIV 28 I still dread all my sufferings, for I know you will not hold me innocent. RHE 29 But if so also I am wicked, why have I laboured in vain? NIV 29 Since I am already found guilty, why should I struggle in vain? RHE 30 If I be washed, as it were, with snow waters, and my hands shall shine ever clean: NIV 30 Even if I washed myself with soap and my hands with cleansing powder, RHE 31 Yet thou shalt plunge me in filth, and my garments shall abhor me. NIV 31 you would plunge me into a slime pit so that even my clothes would detest me. RHE 32 For I shall not answer a man that is like myself: nor one that may be heard with me equally in judgment. NIV 32 “He is not a mere mortal like me that I might answer him, that we might confront each other in court. RHE 33 There is none that may be able to reprove both, and to put his hand between both. NIV 33 If only there were someone to mediate between us, someone to bring us together, RHE 34 Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me. NIV 34 someone to remove God’s rod from me, so that his terror would frighten me no more. RHE 35 I will speak, and will not fear him: for I cannot answer while I am in fear. NIV 35 Then I would speak up without fear of him, but as it now stands with me, I cannot.
