Job 9:15-25

KJV 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. KJV 16 If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice. NIV 16 Even if I summoned him and he responded, I do not believe he would give me a hearing. KJV 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. KJV 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. KJV 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 ? KJV 20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse. NIV 20 Even if I were innocent, my mouth would condemn me; if I were blameless, it would pronounce me guilty. KJV 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. KJV 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.’ KJV 23 If the scourge 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. KJV 24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; 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? KJV 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.
