42:1 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
42:2 I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no
thought can be withheld from thee.
42:3 Who [is] he that hideth counsel without knowledge?
therefore have I uttered that which I understood not; things
too wonderful for me, which I knew not.
42:4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will ask of thee,
and declare thou to me.
42:5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now my
eye seeth thee.
42:6 Wherefore I abhor [myself], and repent in dust and ashes.
42:7 And it was [so], that after the LORD had spoken these words
