33:1 Howbeit, Job, I pray thee, hear mine utterances, and hearken to all my words.

33:2 Behold now, I have opened my mouth, my tongue speaketh in my palate,

33:3 My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart, and my lips shall utter knowledge purely.

33:4 The Spirit of łGod hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

33:5 If thou canst, answer me; array [thy words] before me: take thy stand.

33:6 Behold, before łGod I am as thou; I also am formed out of the clay.

33:7 Behold, my terror shall not make thee afraid, nor my burden be heavy upon thee.

33:8 Surely thou hast spoken in my hearing, and I have heard the voice of [thy] words: --

33:9 I am clean without transgression; I am pure, and there is no iniquity in me;

33:10 Lo, he findeth occasions of hostility against me, he counteth me for his enemy;

33:11 He putteth my feet in the stocks, he marketh all my paths.

33:12 Behold, I will answer thee in this, thou art not right; for +God is greater than man.

33:13 Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters.

33:14 For łGod speaketh once, and twice, -- [and man] perceiveth it not --

33:15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

33:16 Then he openeth men's ears, and sealeth their instruction,

33:17 That he may withdraw man [from his] work, and hide pride from man.

33:18 He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from passing away by the sword.

33:19 He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and with constant strife in his bones;

33:20 And his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty food;

33:21 His flesh is consumed away from view, and his bones that were not seen stick out;

33:22 And his soul draweth near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers.

33:23 If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his duty;

33:24 Then he will be gracious unto him, and say, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

33:25 His flesh shall be fresher than in childhood; he shall return to the days of his youth.

33:26 He shall pray unto +God, and he will receive him with favour; and he shall see his face with shoutings, and he will render unto man his righteousness.

33:27 He will sing before men, and say, I have sinned, and perverted what was right, and it hath not been requited to me;

33:28 He hath delivered my soul from going into the pit, and my life shall see the light.

33:29 Lo, all these [things] worketh łGod twice, thrice, with man,

33:30 To bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.

33:31 Mark well, Job, hearken unto me; be silent, and I will speak.

33:32 If thou hast anything to say, answer me; speak, for I desire to justify thee.

33:33 If not, hearken thou unto me; be silent, and I will teach thee wisdom.
