2 H3045 [H8804] I know H551 it to be so of a truth H582 : but how should man H6663 [H8799] be just H410 with God?
3 H2654 [H8799] If he will H7378 [H8800] contend H6030 [H8799] with him, he cannot answer H259 him one H505 time out of a thousand.
4 H2450 He is wise H3824 in heart H533 , and mighty H3581 in strength H7185 [H8689] : who hath hardened H7999 [H8799] himself against him, and hath prospered?
5 H6275 [H8688] Who removeth H2022 the mountains H3045 [H8804] , and they know H2015 [H8804] not: who overturneth H639 them in his anger.
6 H7264 [H8688] Who shaketh H776 the earth H4725 out of its place H5982 , and its pillars H6426 [H8691] tremble.
7 H559 [H8802] Who commandeth H2775 the sun H2224 [H8799] , and it riseth H2856 [H8799] not; and sealeth up H3556 the stars.
8 H5186 [H8802] Who alone spreadeth out H8064 the heavens H1869 [H8802] , and treadeth H1116 upon the waves H3220 of the sea.
9 H6213 [H8802] Who maketh H5906 Arcturus H3685 , Orion H3598 , and Pleiades H2315 , and the chambers H8486 of the south.
10 H6213 [H8802] Who doeth H1419 great things H369 past H2714 finding out H6381 [H8737] ; yea, and wonders H4557 without number.
11 H5674 [H8799] Lo, he goeth H7200 [H8799] by me, and I see H2498 [H8799] him not: he passeth on H995 [H8799] also, but I perceive him not.
12 H2862 [H8799] Behold, he taketh away H7725 [H8686] , who can hinder H559 [H8799] him? who will say H6213 [H8799] to him, What doest thou?
13 H433 If God H7725 [H8686] will not withdraw H639 his anger H7293 , the proud H5826 [H8802] helpers H7817 [H8804] do stoop under him.
14 H6030 [H8799] How much less shall I answer H977 [H8799] him, and choose out H1697 my words to reason with him?
15 H6663 [H8804] Whom, though I were righteous H6030 [H8799] , yet would I not answer H2603 [H8691] , but I would make supplication H8199 [H8781] to my judge.
16 H7121 [H8804] If I had called H6030 [H8799] , and he had answered H539 [H8686] me; yet I would not believe H238 [H8686] that he had hearkened H6963 to my voice.
17 H7779 [H8799] For he breaketh H8183 me with a tempest H7235 [H8689] , and multiplieth H6482 my wounds H2600 without cause.
18 H5414 [H8799] He will not allow H7725 [H8687] me to take H7307 my breath H7646 [H8686] , but filleth H4472 me with bitterness.
19 H3581 If I speak of strength H533 , lo, he is strong H4941 : and if of judgment H3259 [H8686] , who shall set me a time to plead?
20 H6663 [H8799] If I justify H6310 myself, my own mouth H7561 [H8686] shall condemn H8535 me: if I say, I am perfect H6140 [H8799] , that also shall prove me perverse.
21 H8535 Though I were perfect H3045 [H8799] , yet would I not know H5315 my soul H3988 [H8799] : I would despise H2416 my life.
22 H259 This is one H559 [H8804] thing, therefore I said H3615 [H8764] it, He destroyeth H8535 the perfect H7563 and the wicked.
23 H7752 If the scourge H4191 [H8686] shall slay H6597 suddenly H3932 [H8799] , he will laugh H4531 at the trial H5355 of the innocent.
24 H776 The earth H5414 [H8738] is given H3027 into the hand H7563 of the wicked H3680 [H8762] : he covereth H6440 the faces H8199 [H8802] of its judges H645 ; if not, where, and who is he?
25 H3117 Now my days H7043 [H8804] are swifter H7323 [H8801] than a post H1272 [H8804] : they flee away H7200 [H8804] , they see H2896 no good.
26 H2498 [H8804] They are passed away H5973 as H16 the swift H591 ships H5404 : as the eagle H2907 [H8799] that hasteth H400 to the prey.
27 H559 [H8800] If I say H7911 [H8799] , I will forget H7879 my complaint H5800 [H8799] , I will put off H6440 my heaviness H1082 [H8686] , and comfort myself:
28 H3025 [H8804] I am afraid H6094 of all my sorrows H3045 [H8804] , I know H5352 [H8762] that thou wilt not hold me innocent.
30 H7364 [H8694] If I wash H7950 myself with H4325 H1119 snow water H3709 , and make my hands H1252 H1253 [H8676] never H2141 [H8689] so clean;
31 H227 Yet H2881 [H8799] shalt thou plunge H7845 me in the ditch H8008 , and my own clothes H8581 [H8765] shall abhor me.
32 H376 For he is not a man H6030 [H8799] , as I am, that I should answer H935 [H8799] him, and we should come H3162 together H4941 in judgment.
33 H3426 Neither is H3198 [H8688] there any mediator H7896 [H8799] between us, that might lay H3027 his hand H8147 upon us both.
34 H5493 [H8686] Let him take away H7626 his rod H367 from me, and let not his fear H1204 [H8762] terrify me:
