Job 9

WBT 1 Then Job answered and said, NIV 1 Then Job replied: WBT 2 I know [it to be] so of a truth: but how should man be just with God? NIV 2 “Indeed, I know that this is true. But how can mere mortals prove their innocence before God? WBT 3 If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand. NIV 3 Though they wished to dispute with him, they could not answer him one time out of a thousand. WBT 4 [He is] wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened [himself] against him, and hath prospered? NIV 4 His wisdom is profound, his power is vast. Who has resisted him and come out unscathed? WBT 5 Who removeth the mountains, and they know not: who overturneth them in his anger. NIV 5 He moves mountains without their knowing it and overturns them in his anger. WBT 6 Who shaketh the earth out of her place, and its pillars tremble. NIV 6 He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble. WBT 7 Who commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars. NIV 7 He speaks to the sun and it does not shine; he seals off the light of the stars. WBT 8 Who alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. NIV 8 He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea. WBT 9 Who maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. NIV 9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the constellations of the south. WBT 10 Who doeth great things past finding out; yes, and wonders without number. NIV 10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. WBT 11 Lo, he goeth by me, and I see [him] not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not. NIV 11 When he passes me, I cannot see him; when he goes by, I cannot perceive him. WBT 12 Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say to him, What doest thou? NIV 12 If he snatches away, who can stop him? Who can say to him, ‘What are you doing?’ WBT 13 [If] God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him. NIV 13 God does not restrain his anger; even the cohorts of Rahab cowered at his feet. WBT 14 How much less shall I answer him, [and] choose out my words [to reason] with him? NIV 14 “How then can I dispute with him? How can I find words to argue with him? WBT 15 Whom, though I were righteous, [yet] would I not answer, [but] I 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. WBT 16 If I had called, and he had answered me; [yet] I would not believe that he had hearkened to my voice. NIV 16 Even if I summoned him and he responded, I do not believe he would give me a hearing. WBT 17 For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause. NIV 17 He would crush me with a storm and multiply my wounds for no reason. WBT 18 He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness. NIV 18 He would not let me catch my breath but would overwhelm me with misery. WBT 19 If [I speak] of strength, lo, [he is] strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time [to plead]? NIV 19 If it is a matter of strength, he is mighty! And if it is a matter of justice, who can challenge him ? WBT 20 If I justify myself, my own mouth will condemn me: [if I say], I [am] perfect, that also will prove me perverse. NIV 20 Even if I were innocent, my mouth would condemn me; if I were blameless, it would pronounce me guilty. WBT 21 [Though] I [were] perfect, [yet] would I not know my soul: I would despise my life. NIV 21 “Although I am blameless, I have no concern for myself; I despise my own life. WBT 22 This [is] one [thing], therefore I said [it], he destroyeth the perfect and the wicked. NIV 22 It is all the same; that is why I say, ‘He destroys both the blameless and the wicked.’ WBT 23 If the scourge shall slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent. NIV 23 When a scourge brings sudden death, he mocks the despair of the innocent. WBT 24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of its judges; if not, where, [and] who [is] he? 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? WBT 25 Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good. NIV 25 “My days are swifter than a runner; they fly away without a glimpse of joy. WBT 26 They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle [that] hasteth to the prey. NIV 26 They skim past like boats of papyrus, like eagles swooping down on their prey. WBT 27 If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort [myself]: NIV 27 If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will change my expression, and smile,’ WBT 28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent. NIV 28 I still dread all my sufferings, for I know you will not hold me innocent. WBT 29 [If] I am wicked, why then do I labor in vain? NIV 29 Since I am already found guilty, why should I struggle in vain? WBT 30 If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean; NIV 30 Even if I washed myself with soap and my hands with cleansing powder, WBT 31 Yet wilt thou plunge me in the ditch, and my own clothes shall abhor me. NIV 31 you would plunge me into a slime pit so that even my clothes would detest me. WBT 32 For [he is] not a man, as I [am], [that] I should answer him, [and] we should come together 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. WBT 33 Neither is there any judge between us, [that] might lay his hand upon us both. NIV 33 If only there were someone to mediate between us, someone to bring us together, WBT 34 Let him take away his rod 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. WBT 35 [Then] would I speak, and not fear him; but [it is] not so with me. NIV 35 Then I would speak up without fear of him, but as it now stands with me, I cannot.
