Young's Literal Translation

Job 23

Job longeth to appear before God,

Job 23:1 And Job answereth and saith:— Job 23:2 Also—to-day [is] my complaint bitter, My hand hath been heavy because of my sighing. Job 23:3 O that I had known—and I find Him, I come in unto His seat, Job 23:4 I arrange before Him the cause, And my mouth fill [with] arguments. Job 23:5 I know the words He doth answer me, And understand what He saith to me.

in confidence of his mercy.

Job 23:6 In the abundance of power doth He strive with me? No! surely He putteth [it] in me. Job 23:7 There the upright doth reason with Him, And I escape for ever from my judge.

God, who is invisible, observeth our ways.

Job 23:8 Lo, forward I go—and He is not, And backward—and I perceive him not. Job 23:9 [To] the left in His working—and I see not, He is covered [on] the right, and I behold not. Job 23:10 For He hath known the way with me, He hath tried me—as gold I go forth.

Job's innocency.

Job 23:11 On His step hath my foot laid hold, His way I have kept, and turn not aside, Job 23:12 The command of His lips, and I depart not. Above my allotted portion I have laid up The sayings of His mouth.

God's decree is immutable.

Job 23:13 And He [is] in one [mind], And who doth turn Him back? And His soul hath desired—and He doth [it]. Job 23:14 For He doth complete my portion, And many such things [are] with Him. Job 23:15 Therefore, from His presence I am troubled, I consider, and am afraid of Him. Job 23:16 And God hath made my heart soft, And the Mighty hath troubled me. Job 23:17 For I have not been cut off before darkness, And before me He covered thick darkness.
