Geneva Study Bible
   1: Then Job answered and said,
   2: I know [it to be] so of a truth: but how should man be just with God?
   3: If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.
   4: [He is] wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened [himself] against him, and hath prospered?
   5: Who removeth the mountains, and they know not: who overturneth them in his anger.
   6: Who shaketh the earth out of her place, and its pillars tremble.
   7: Who commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.
   8: Who alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.
   9: Who maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.
   10: Who doeth great things past finding out; yes, and wonders without number.
   11: Lo, he goeth by me, and I see [him] not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.
   12: Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say to him, What doest thou?
   13: [If] God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.
   14: How much less shall I answer him, [and] choose out my words [to reason] with him?
   15: Whom, though I were righteous, [yet] would I not answer, [but] I would make supplication to my judge.
   16: If I had called, and he had answered me; [yet] I would not believe that he had hearkened to my voice.
   17: For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.
   18: He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.
   19: If [I speak] of strength, lo, [he is] strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time [to plead]?
   20: If I justify myself, my own mouth will condemn me: [if I say], I [am] perfect, that also will prove me perverse.
   21: [Though] I [were] perfect, [yet] would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.
   22: This [is] one [thing], therefore I said [it], he destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.
   23: If the scourge shall slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.
   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?
   25: Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.
   26: They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle [that] hasteth to the prey.
   27: If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort [myself]:
   28: I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.
   29: [If] I am wicked, why then do I labor in vain?
   30: If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;
   31: Yet wilt thou plunge me in the ditch, and my own clothes shall abhor me.
   32: For [he is] not a man, as I [am], [that] I should answer him, [and] we should come together in judgment.
   33: Neither is there any judge between us, [that] might lay his hand upon us both.
   34: Let him take away his rod from me, and let not his fear terrify me:
   35: [Then] would I speak, and not fear him; but [it is] not so with me.
