Job 23 Text (WEB)
  1. Then Job answered,
  2. "Even today my complaint is rebellious. His hand is heavy in spite of my groaning.
  3. Oh that I knew where I might find him! That I might come even to his seat!
  4. I would set my cause in order before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
  5. I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would tell me.
  6. Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? No, but he would listen to me.
  7. There the upright might reason with him, so I should be delivered forever from my judge.
  8. "If I go east, he is not there; if west, I can't find him;
  9. He works to the north, but I can't see him. He turns south, but I can't catch a glimpse of him.
  10. But he knows the way that I take. When he has tried me, I shall come forth like gold.
  11. My foot has held fast to his steps. I have kept his way, and not turned aside.
  12. I haven't gone back from the commandment of his lips. I have treasured up the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
  13. But he stands alone, and who can oppose him? What his soul desires, even that he does.
  14. For he performs that which is appointed for me. Many such things are with him.
  15. Therefore I am terrified at his presence. When I consider, I am afraid of him.
  16. For God has made my heart faint. The Almighty has terrified me.
  17. Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither did he cover the thick darkness from my face.
Job 23 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויען איוב ויאמר׃
  2. גם־היום מרי שחי ידי כבדה על־אנחתי׃
  3. מי־יתן ידעתי ואמצאהו אבוא עד־תכונתו׃
  4. אערכה לפניו משפט ופי אמלא תוכחות׃
  5. אדעה מלים יענני ואבינה מה־יאמר לי׃
  6. הברב־כח יריב עמדי לא אך־הוא ישם בי׃
  7. שם ישר נוכח עמו ואפלטה לנצח משפטי׃
  8. הן קדם אהלך ואיננו ואחור ולא־אבין לו׃
  9. שמאול בעשתו ולא־אחז יעטף ימין ולא אראה׃
  10. כי־ידע דרך עמדי בחנני כזהב אצא׃
  11. באשרו אחזה רגלי דרכו שמרתי ולא־אט׃
  12. מצות שפתיו ולא אמיש מחקי צפנתי אמרי־פיו׃
  13. והוא באחד ומי ישיבנו ונפשו אותה ויעש׃
  14. כי ישלים חקי וכהנה רבות עמו׃
  15. על־כן מפניו אבהל אתבוןן ואפחד ממנו׃
  16. ואל הרך לבי ושדי הבהילני׃
  17. כי־לא נצמתי מפני־חשך ומפני כסה־אפל׃
Job 23 Text (Greek)
  1. υπολαβων δε ιωβ
  2. και δη οιδα οτι εκ χειρος μου η ελεγξις εστιν και η χειρ αυτου βαρεια γεγονεν επ' εμω
  3. τις δ' αρα γνοιη οτι ευροιμι αυτον και ελθοιμι εις
  4. ειποιμι δε εμαυτου κριμα το δε στομα μου εμπλησαιμι
  5. γνωην δε ρηματα α μοι ερει αισθοιμην δε τινα μοι
  6. και ει εν πολλη ισχυι επελευσεται μοι ειτα εν απειλη μοι ου
  7. αληθεια γαρ και ελεγχος παρ' αυτου εξαγαγοι δε εις τελος το κριμα
  8. εις γαρ πρωτα πορευσομαι και ουκετι ειμι τα δε επ' εσχατοις τι
  9. αριστερα ποιησαντος αυτου και ου κατεσχον περιβαλει δεξια και ουκ
  10. εξελευσομαι δε εν ενταλμασιν αυτου οδους γαρ αυτου εφυλαξα και ου μη
  11. εξελευσομαι δε εν ενταλμασιν αυτου οδους γαρ αυτου εφυλαξα και ου μη
  12. απο ενταλματων αυτου και ου μη παρελθω εν δε κολπω μου εκρυψα ρηματα
  13. ει δε και αυτος εκρινεν ουτως τις εστιν ο αντειπων αυτω ο γαρ αυτος ηθελησεν και
  14. Greek:Job 23:14
  15. δια τουτο επ' αυτω εσπουδακα νουθετουμενος δε εφροντισα
  16. κυριος δε εμαλακυνεν την καρδιαν μου ο δε παντοκρατωρ εσπουδασεν
  17. ου γαρ ηδειν οτι επελευσεται μοι σκοτος προ προσωπου δε μου εκαλυψεν
Job 23 Text (Latin)
  1. Respondens autem Job, ait :
  2. Nunc quoque in amaritudine est sermo meus, et manus plagæ meæ aggravata est super gemitum meum.
  3. Quis mihi tribuat ut cognoscam et inveniam illum, et veniam usque ad solium ejus ?
  4. Ponam coram eo judicium, et os meum replebo increpationibus :
  5. ut sciam verba quæ mihi respondeat, et intelligam quid loquatur mihi.
  6. Nolo multa fortitudine contendat mecum, nec magnitudinis suæ mole me premat.
  7. Proponat æquitatem contra me, et perveniat ad victoriam judicium meum.
  8. Si ad orientem iero, non apparet : si ad occidentem, non intelligam eum.
  9. Si ad sinistram, quid agam ? non apprehendam eum : si me vertam ad dexteram, non videbo illum.
  10. Ipse vero scit viam meam, et probavit me quasi aurum quod per ignem transit.
  11. Vestigia ejus secutus est pes meus : viam ejus custodivi, et non declinavi ex ea.
  12. A mandatis labiorum ejus non recessi, et in sinu meo abscondi verba oris ejus.
  13. Ipse enim solus est, et nemo avertere potest cogitationem ejus, et anima ejus quodcumque voluit, hoc fecit.
  14. Cum expleverit in me voluntatem suam, et alia multa similia præsto sunt ei.
  15. Et idcirco a facie ejus turbatus sum, et considerans eum, timore sollicitor.
  16. Deus mollivit cor meum, et Omnipotens conturbavit me.
  17. Non enim perii propter imminentes tenebras, nec faciem meam operuit caligo.
Job 23 Text (KJV)
  1. Then Job answered and said,
  2. Even to day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.
  3. Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!
  4. I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
  5. I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.
  6. Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me.
  7. There the righteous might dispute with him; so should I be delivered for ever from my judge.
  8. Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him:
  9. On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:
  10. But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
  11. My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined.
  12. Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
  13. But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.
  14. For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him.
  15. Therefore am I troubled at his presence: when I consider, I am afraid of him.
  16. For God maketh my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth me:
  17. Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.
