Iyov (Book of Job), Chapter 33

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Howbeit, Job, I pray thee, hear my speech, and hearken to all my words.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Behold now, I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 My words shall utter the uprightness of my heart; and that which my lips know they shall speak sincerely.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 The spirit of G-d hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty given me life.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 If thou canst, answer thou me, set thy words in order before me, stand forth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Behold, I am toward G-d even as thou art; I also am formed out of the clay.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, neither shall my pressure be heavy upon thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Surely thou hast spoken in my hearing, and I have heard the voice of thy words;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 'I am clean, without transgression, I am innocent, neither is there iniquity in me;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Behold, He findeth occasions against me, He counteth me for His enemy;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 He putteth my feet in the stocks, He marketh all my paths.'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Behold, I answer thee: In this thou art not right, that G-d is too great for man;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Why hast thou striven against Him? seeing that He will not answer any of his words.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 For G-d speaketh in one way, yea in two, though man perceiveth it not.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Then He openeth the ears of men, and by their chastisement sealeth the decree,

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 That men may put away their purpose, and that He may hide pride from man;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 That He may keep back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and all his bones grow stiff;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 So that his life maketh him to abhor bread, and his soul dainty food.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones corrode to unsightliness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 Yea, his soul draweth near unto the pit, and his life to the destroyers.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 If there be for him an angel, an intercessor, one among a thousand, to vouch for a man's uprightness;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 Then He is gracious unto him, and saith: 'Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 His flesh is tenderer than a child's; he returneth to the days of his youth;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 He prayeth unto G-d, and He is favourable unto him; so that he seeth His face with joy; and He restoreth unto man his righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 He cometh before men, and saith: 'I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not.'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 So He redeemeth his soul from going into the pit, and his life beholdeth the light.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 Lo, all these things doth G-d work, twice, yea thrice, with a man,

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 To bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me; hold thy peace, and I will speak.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 If thou hast any thing to say, answer me; speak, for I desire to justify thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000020-QINU`"'33 If not, hearken thou unto me; hold thy peace, and I will teach thee wisdom.
