Job 33

33:1 Wherefore, Job, I pray thee, hear my speeches, and hearken
 to all my words.
33:2 Behold, now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken
 in my mouth.
33:3 My words [shall be of] the uprightness of my heart: and my
 lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
33:4 The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the
 Almighty hath given me life.
33:5 If thou canst answer me, set [thy words] in order before
 me, stand up.
33:6 Behold, I [am] according to thy wish in God's stead: I also
 am formed out of the clay.
33:7 Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall
 my hand be heavy upon thee.
33:8 Surely thou hast spoken in my hearing, and I have heard the
 voice of [thy] words, [saying],
33:9 I am clean without transgression, I [am] innocent; neither
 [is there] iniquity in me.
33:10 Behold, he findeth occasions against me, he counteth me
 for his enemy,
33:11 He putteth my feet in the stocks, he marketh all my paths.
33:12 Behold, [in] this thou art not just: I will answer thee,
 that God is greater than man.
33:13 Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not
 account of any of his matters.
33:14 For God speaketh once, yes twice, [yet man] perceiveth it
33:15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep
 falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
33:16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their
33:17 That he may withdraw man [from his] purpose, and hide
 pride from man.
33:18 He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from
 perishing by the sword.
33:19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the
 multitude of his bones with strong [pain]:
33:20 So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty
33:21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and
 his bones [that] were not seen stick out.
33:22 Yes, his soul draweth near to the grave, and his life to
 the destroyers.
33:23 If there is a messenger with him, an interpreter, one
 among a thousand, to show to man his uprightness:
33:24 Then he is gracious to him, and saith, Deliver him from
 going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.
33:25 His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he will return
 to the days of his youth:
33:26 He shall pray to God, and he will be favorable to him: and
 he shall see his face with joy: for he will render to man his
33:27 He looketh upon men, and [if any] shall say, I have
 sinned, and perverted [that which was] right, and it profited
 me not;
33:28 He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his
 life shall see the light.
33:29 Lo, all these [things] God often worketh with man,
33:30 To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened
 with the light of the living.
33:31 Mark well, O Job, hearken to me: hold thy peace, and I
 will speak.
33:32 If thou hast any thing to say, answer me: speak, for I
 desire to justify thee.
33:33 If not, hearken to me: hold thy peace, and I shall teach
 thee wisdom.
