1So now, Job, I beg you, hear my speech; listen to all my words.
2See now, I have opened my mouth; my tongue has spoken in my mouth.
3My words come from the uprightness of my heart; my lips speak pure knowledge.
4The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty has given me life.
5If you can, answer me; set your words in order before me and stand up.
6See, I am just as you are in God's sight; I also have been formed out of the clay.
7See, terror of me will not make you afraid; neither will my pressure be heavy upon you.
8You have certainly spoken in my hearing; I have heard the sound of your words saying,
9'I am clean and without transgression; I am innocent, and there is no sin in me.
10See, God finds opportunities to attack me; he regards me as his enemy.
11He puts my feet in stocks; he watches all my paths.'
12See, in this you are not right—I will answer you, for God is greater than man.
13Why do you struggle against him? He does not account for any of his doings.
14For God speaks once— yes, twice, though man does not notice it.
15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumber on the bed—
16then God opens the ears of men, and frightens them with threats,
17in order to pull man back from his sinful purposes, and keep pride from him.
18God keeps man's life back from the pit, his life from crossing over to death.

19Man is punished also with pain on his bed, with constant agony in his bones,
20so that his life abhors food, and his soul abhors delicacies.
21His flesh is consumed away so that it cannot be seen; his bones, once not seen, now stick out.
22Indeed, his soul draws close to the pit, his life to those who wish to destroy it.
23But if there is an angel who can be a mediator for him, a mediator, one from among the thousands of angels, to show him what is right to do,
24and if the angel is kind to him and says to God, 'Save this person from going down to the pit; I have found a ransom for him,'
25then his flesh will become fresher than a child's; he will return to the days of his youthful strength.
26He will pray to God, and God will be kind to him, so that he sees God's face with joy. God will give the person his triumph.
27Then that person will sing in front of other people and say, 'I sinned and perverted that which was right, but my sin was not punished.
28God has rescued my soul from going down into the pit; my life will continue to see light.'
29See, God does all these things with a person, twice, yes, even three times,
30to bring his soul back from the pit, so that he may be enlightened with the light of life.
31Pay attention, Job, and listen to me; be silent and I will speak.
32If you have anything to say, answer me; speak, for I wish to prove that you are in the right.
33If not, then listen to me; remain silent, and I will teach you wisdom.”
