Job 23 KJV

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 arguments.

23:5
I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.

23:6
Will 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 him:

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 declined.

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.

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 me:

23:17
Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.
