Job 13 (WEBP)

[1] “Behold, my eye has seen all this. My ear has heard and understood it.
[2] What you know, I know also. I am not inferior to you.
[3] “Surely I would speak to the Almighty. I desire to reason with God.
[4] But you are forgers of lies. You are all physicians of no value.
[5] Oh that you would be completely silent! Then you would be wise.
[6] Hear now my reasoning. Listen to the pleadings of my lips.
[7] Will you speak unrighteously for God, and talk deceitfully for him?
[8] Will you show partiality to him? Will you contend for God?
[9] Is it good that he should search you out? Or as one deceives a man, will you deceive him?
[10] He will surely reprove you if you secretly show partiality.
[11] Won’t his majesty make you afraid and his dread fall on you?
[12] Your memorable sayings are proverbs of ashes. Your defenses are defenses of clay.
[13] “Be silent! Leave me alone, that I may speak. Let come on me what will.
[14] Why should I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in my hand?
[15] Behold, he will kill me. I have no hope. Nevertheless, I will maintain my ways before him.
[16] This also will be my salvation, that a godless man will not come before him.
[17] Listen carefully to my speech. Let my declaration be in your ears.
[18] See now, I have set my cause in order. I know that I am righteous.
[19] Who is he who will contend with me? For then would I hold my peace and give up the spirit.
[20] “Only don’t do two things to me, then I will not hide myself from your face:
[21] withdraw your hand far from me, and don’t let your terror make me afraid.
[22] Then call, and I will answer, or let me speak, and you answer me.
[23] How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me know my disobedience and my sin.
[24] Why do you hide your face, and consider me your enemy?
[25] Will you harass a driven leaf? Will you pursue the dry stubble?
[26] For you write bitter things against me, and make me inherit the iniquities of my youth.
[27] You also put my feet in the stocks, and mark all my paths. You set a bound to the soles of my feet,
[28] though I am decaying like a rotten thing, like a garment that is moth-eaten.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Job 13 (KJVS)

[1] Lo, mine eye H5869 hath seen H7200 (8804) all [this], mine ear H241 hath heard H8085 (8804) and understood H995 (8799) it.
[2] What ye know H1847, [the same] do I know H3045 (8804) also: I [am] not inferior H5307 (8802) unto you.
[3] Surely H199 I would speak H1696 (8762) to the Almighty H7706, and I desire H2654 (8799) to reason H3198 (8687) with God H410.
[4] But H199 ye [are] forgers H2950 (8802) of lies H8267, ye [are] all physicians H7495 (8802) of no value H457.
[5] O that H5414 (8799) ye would altogether H2790 (8687) hold your peace H2790 (8686)! and it should be your wisdom H2451.
[6] Hear H8085 (8798) now my reasoning H8433, and hearken H7181 (8685) to the pleadings H7379 of my lips H8193.
[7] Will ye speak H1696 (8762) wickedly H5766 for God H410? and talk H1696 (8762) deceitfully H7423 for him?
[8] Will ye accept H5375 (8799) his person H6440? will ye contend H7378 (8799) for God H410?
[9] Is it good H2895 (8804) that he should search you out H2713 (8799)? or as one man H582 mocketh H2048 (8763) another, do ye [so] mock H2048 (8762) him?
[10] He will surely H3198 (8687) reprove H3198 (8686) you, if ye do secretly H5643 accept H5375 (8799) persons H6440.
[11] Shall not his excellency H7613 make you afraid H1204 (8762)? and his dread H6343 fall H5307 (8799) upon you?
[12] Your remembrances H2146 [are] like H4912 unto ashes H665, your bodies H1354 to bodies H1354 of clay H2563.
[13] Hold your peace H2790 (8685), let me alone, that I may speak H1696 (8762), and let come H5674 (8799) on me what [will].
[14] Wherefore do I take H5375 (8799) my flesh H1320 in my teeth H8127, and put H7760 (8799) my life H5315 in mine hand H3709?
[15] Though H2005 he slay H6991 (8799) me, yet will I trust H3176 (8762) in him: but I will maintain H3198 (8686) mine own ways H1870 before H6440 him.
[16] He also [shall be] my salvation H3444: for an hypocrite H2611 shall not come H935 (8799) before H6440 him.
[17] Hear H8085 (8798) diligently H8085 (8800) my speech H4405, and my declaration H262 with your ears H241.
[18] Behold now, I have ordered H6186 (8804) [my] cause H4941; I know H3045 (8804) that I shall be justified H6663 (8799).
[19] Who [is] he [that] will plead H7378 (8799) with me? for now, if I hold my tongue H2790 (8686), I shall give up the ghost H1478 (8799).
[20] Only do H6213 (8799) not two H8147 [things] unto me: then will I not hide H5641 (8735) myself from thee H6440.
[21] Withdraw H7368 thine hand H3709 far H7368 (8685) from me: and let not thy dread H367 make me afraid H1204 (8762).
[22] Then call H7121 (8798) thou, and I will answer H6030 (8799): or let me speak H1696 (8762), and answer H7725 (8685) thou me.
[23] How many [are] mine iniquities H5771 and sins H2403? make me to know H3045 (8685) my transgression H6588 and my sin H2403.
[24] Wherefore hidest H5641 (8686) thou thy face H6440, and holdest H2803 (8799) me for thine enemy H341 (8802)?
[25] Wilt thou break H6206 (8799) a leaf H5929 driven to and fro H5086 (8737)? and wilt thou pursue H7291 (8799) the dry H3002 stubble H7179?
[26] For thou writest H3789 (8799) bitter things H4846 against me, and makest me to possess H3423 (8686) the iniquities H5771 of my youth H5271.
[27] Thou puttest H7760 (8799) my feet H7272 also in the stocks H5465, and lookest narrowly H8104 (8799) unto all my paths H734; thou settest a print H2707 (8691) upon the heels H8328 of my feet H7272.
[28] And he, as a rotten thing H7538, consumeth H1086 (8799), as a garment H899 that is moth H6211 eaten H398 (8804).

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 13 (YLT)

[1] Lo, all-hath mine eye seen, Heard hath mine ear, and it attendeth to it.
[2] According to your knowledge I have known-also I. I am not fallen more than you.
[3] Yet I for the Mighty One do speak, And to argue for God I delight.
[4] And yet, ye are forgers of falsehood, Physicians of nought-all of you,
[5] O that ye would keep perfectly silent, And it would be to you for wisdom.
[6] Hear, I pray you, my argument, And to the pleadings of my lips attend,
[7] For God do ye speak perverseness? And for Him do ye speak deceit?
[8] His face do ye accept, if for God ye strive?
[9] Is it good that He doth search you, If, as one mocketh at a man, ye mock at Him?
[10] He doth surely reprove you, if in secret ye accept faces.
[11] Doth not His excellency terrify you? And His dread fall upon you?
[12] Your remembrances are similes of ashes, For high places of clay your heights.
[13] Keep silent from me, and I speak, And pass over me doth what?
[14] Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth? And my soul put in my hand?
[15] Lo, He doth slay me-I wait not! Only, my ways unto His face I argue.
[16] Also-He is to me for salvation, For the profane cometh not before Him.
[17] Hear ye diligently my word, And my declaration with your ears.
[18] Lo, I pray you, I have set in order the cause, I have known that I am righteous.
[19] Who is he that doth strive with me? For now I keep silent and gasp.
[20] Only two things, O God, do with me: Then from Thy face I am not hidden.
[21] Thy hand put far off from me, And Thy terror let not terrify me.
[22] And call Thou, and I-I answer, Or-I speak, and answer Thou me.
[23] How many iniquities and sins have I? My transgression and my sin let me know.
[24] Why dost Thou hide Thy face? And reckonest me for an enemy to Thee?
[25] A leaf driven away dost Thou terrify? And the dry stubble dost Thou pursue?
[26] For Thou writest against me bitter things, And causest me to possess iniquities of my youth:
[27] And puttest in the stocks my feet, And observest all my paths, On the roots of my feet Thou settest a print,
[28] And he, as a rotten thing, weareth away, As a garment hath a moth consumed him.
