1: And Job answereth and saith: -- 2: Truly I have known that [it is] so, And what -- is man righteous with God? 3: If he delight to strive with Him -- He doth not answer him one of a thousand. 4: Wise in heart and strong in power -- Who hath hardened toward Him and is at peace? 5: Who is removing mountains, And they have not known, Who hath overturned them in His anger. 6: Who is shaking earth from its place, And its pillars move themselves. 7: Who is speaking to the sun, and it riseth not, And the stars He sealeth up. 8: Stretching out the heavens by Himself, And treading on the heights of the sea, 9: Making Osh, Kesil, and Kimah, And the inner chambers of the south. 10: Doing great things till there is no searching, And wonderful, till there is no numbering. 11: Lo, He goeth over by me, and I see not, And He passeth on, and I attend not to it. 12: Lo, He snatches away, who bringeth it back? Who saith unto Him, 'What dost Thou?' 13: God doth not turn back His anger, Under Him bowed have proud helpers. 14: How much less do I -- I answer Him? Choose out my words with Him? 15: Whom, though I were righteous, I answer not, For my judgment I make supplication. 16: Though I had called and He answereth me, I do not believe that He giveth ear [to] my voice. 17: Because with a tempest He bruiseth me, And hath multiplied my wounds for nought. 18: He permitteth me not to refresh my spirit, But filleth me with bitter things. 19: If of power, lo, the Strong One; And if of judgment -- who doth convene me? 20: If I be righteous, Mine mouth doth declare me wicked, Perfect I am! -- it declareth me perverse. 21: Perfect I am! -- I know not my soul, I despise my life. 22: It is the same thing, therefore I said, 'The perfect and the wicked He is consuming.' 23: If a scourge doth put to death suddenly, At the trial of the innocent He laugheth. 24: Earth hath been given Into the hand of the wicked one. The face of its judges he covereth, If not -- where, who [is] he? 25: My days have been swifter than a runner, They have fled, they have not seen good, 26: They have passed on with ships of reed, As an eagle darteth on food. 27: Though I say, 'I forget my talking, I forsake my corner, and I brighten up!' 28: I have been afraid of all my griefs, I have known that Thou dost not acquit me. 29: I -- I am become wicked; why [is] this? [In] vain I labour. 30: If I have washed myself with snow-water, And purified with soap my hands, 31: Then in corruption Thou dost dip me, And my garments have abominated me. 32: But if a man like myself -- I answer him, We come together into judgment. 33: If there were between us an umpire, He doth place his hand on us both. 34: He doth turn aside from off me his rod, And His terror doth not make me afraid, 35: I speak, and do not fear Him, But I am not right with myself.
