|And Job, responding, said:
|Truly, I know that it is so, and that man cannot be justified compared with God.
|If he chooses to contend with him, he is not able to respond to him once out of a thousand times.
|He is understanding in heart and mighty in strength; who has resisted him and yet had peace?
|He has moved mountains, and those whom he overthrew in his fury did not know it.
|He shakes the earth out of its place and its pillars tremble.
|He commands the sun and it does not rise, and he closes the stars as if under a seal.
|He alone extends the heavens, and he walks upon the waves of the sea.
|He fashions Arcturus, and Orion, and Hyades, and the interior of the south.
|He accomplishes great and incomprehensible and miraculous things, which cannot be numbered.
|If he approaches me, I will not see him; if he departs, I will not understand.
|If he suddenly should question, who will answer him? Or who can say, “Why did you do so?”
|what am I then, that I should answer him and exchange words with him?
|And if I now have any justice, I will not respond, but will beseech my judge.
|And if he should listen to me when I call, I would not believe that he had heard my voice.
