Job Chapter 9   
   King James Version

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