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.

[28] And he, as a rotten thing , consumeth (), as a garment that is moth eaten ().

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.
