Job 23

23:1 Then Job answered and said,
23:2 Even to-day [is] my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier
 than my groaning.
23:3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! [that] I might come
 [even] to his seat!
23:4 I would order [my] cause before him, and fill my mouth with
23:5 I would know the words [which] he would answer me, and
 understand what he would say to me.
23:6 Would he plead against me with [his] great power? No; but
 he would put [strength] in me.
23:7 There the righteous might dispute with him; so should I be
 delivered for ever from my judge.
23:8 Behold, I go forward, but he [is] not [there]; and
 backward, but I cannot perceive him:
23:9 On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold
 [him]: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see
23:10 But he knoweth the way that I take: [when] he hath tried
 me, I shall come forth as gold.
23:11 My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not
23:12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips;
 I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary
23:13 But he [is] in one [mind], and who can turn him? and
 [what] his soul desireth, even [that] he doeth.
23:14 For he performeth [the thing that is] appointed for me:
 and many such [things are] with him.
23:15 Therefore am I troubled at his presence: when I consider,
 I am afraid of him.
23:16 For God maketh my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth
23:17 Because I was not cut off before the darkness, [neither]
 hath he covered the darkness from my face.
