JOB 33:1 And yet, I pray thee, O Job, Hear my speech and `to' all my words give ear.

JOB 33:2 Lo, I pray thee, I have opened my mouth, My tongue hath spoken in the palate.

JOB 33:3 Of the uprightness of my heart `are' my sayings, And knowledge have my lips clearly spoken.

JOB 33:4 The Spirit of God hath made me, And the breath of the Mighty doth quicken me.

JOB 33:5 If thou art able -- answer me, Set in array before me -- station thyself.

JOB 33:6 Lo, I `am', according to thy word, for God, From the clay I -- I also, have been formed.

JOB 33:7 Lo, my terror doth not frighten thee, And my burden on thee is not heavy.

JOB 33:8 Surely -- thou hast said in mine ears, And the sounds of words I hear:

JOB 33:9 `Pure `am' I, without transgression, Innocent `am' I, and I have no iniquity.

JOB 33:10 Lo, occasions against me He doth find, He doth reckon me for an enemy to Him,

JOB 33:11 He doth put in the stocks my feet, He doth watch all my paths.'

JOB 33:12 Lo, `in' this thou hast not been righteous, I answer thee, that greater is God than man.

JOB 33:13 Wherefore against Him hast thou striven, When `for' all His matters He answereth not?

JOB 33:14 For once doth God speak, and twice, (He doth not behold it.)

JOB 33:15 In a dream -- a vision of night, In the falling of deep sleep on men, In slumberings on a bed.

JOB 33:16 Then He uncovereth the ear of men, And for their instruction sealeth:

JOB 33:17 To turn aside man `from' doing, And pride from man He concealeth.

JOB 33:18 He keepeth back his soul from corruption, And his life from passing away by a dart.

JOB 33:19 And he hath been reproved With pain on his bed, And the strife of his bones `is' enduring.

JOB 33:20 And his life hath nauseated bread, And his soul desirable food.

JOB 33:21 His flesh is consumed from being seen, And high are his bones, they were not seen!

JOB 33:22 And draw near to the pit doth his soul, And his life to those causing death.

JOB 33:23 If there is by him a messenger, An interpreter -- one of a thousand, To declare for man his uprightness:

JOB 33:24 Then He doth favour him and saith, `Ransom him from going down to the pit, I have found an atonement.'

JOB 33:25 Fresher `is' his flesh than a child's, He returneth to the days of his youth.

JOB 33:26 He maketh supplication unto God, And He accepteth him. And he seeth His face with shouting, And He returneth to man His righteousness.

JOB 33:27 He looketh on men, and saith, `I sinned, And uprightness I have perverted, And it hath not been profitable to me.

JOB 33:28 He hath ransomed my soul From going over into the pit, And my life on the light looketh.'

JOB 33:29 Lo, all these doth God work, Twice -- thrice with man,

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

JOB 33:31 Attend, O Job, hearken to me, Keep silent, and I -- I do speak.

JOB 33:32 If there are words -- answer me, Speak, for I have a desire to justify thee.

JOB 33:33 If there are not -- hearken thou to me, Keep silent, and I teach thee wisdom.
