Chapter 23

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

Chapter 24

Job:24:1: Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
Job:24:2: Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.
Job:24:3: They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow’s ox for a pledge.
Job:24:4: They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.
Job:24:5: Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.
Job:24:6: They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.
