Job 33 (WEBP)

[1] “However, Job, please hear my speech, and listen to all my words.
[2] See now, I have opened my mouth. My tongue has spoken in my mouth.
[3] My words will utter the uprightness of my heart. That which my lips know they will speak sincerely.
[4] The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
[5] If you can, answer me. Set your words in order before me, and stand up.
[6] Behold, I am toward God even as you are. I am also formed out of the clay.
[7] Behold, my terror will not make you afraid, neither will my pressure be heavy on you.
[8] “Surely you have spoken in my hearing, I have heard the voice of your words, saying,
[9] ‘I am clean, without disobedience. I am innocent, neither is there iniquity in me.
[10] Behold, he finds occasions against me. He counts me for his enemy.
[11] He puts my feet in the stocks. He marks all my paths.’
[12] “Behold, I will answer you. In this you are not just, for God is greater than man.
[13] Why do you strive against him, because he doesn’t give account of any of his matters?
[14] For God speaks once, yes twice, though man pays no attention.
[15] In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, in slumbering on the bed,
[16] then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction,
[17] that he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
[18] He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
[19] “He is chastened also with pain on his bed, with continual strife in his bones,
[20] so that his life abhors bread, and his soul dainty food.
[21] His flesh is so consumed away that it can’t be seen. His bones that were not seen stick out.
[22] Yes, his soul draws near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers.
[23] “If there is beside him an angel, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show to man what is right for him,
[24] then God is gracious to him, and says, ‘Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.’
[25] His flesh will be fresher than a child’s. He returns to the days of his youth.
[26] He prays to God, and he is favorable to him, so that he sees his face with joy. He restores to man his righteousness.
[27] He sings before men, and says, ‘I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it didn’t profit me.
[28] He has redeemed my soul from going into the pit. My life will see the light.’
[29] “Behold, God does all these things, twice, yes three times, with a man,
[30] to bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.
[31] Mark well, Job, and listen to me. Hold your peace, and I will speak.
[32] If you have anything to say, answer me. Speak, for I desire to justify you.
[33] If not, listen to me. Hold your peace, and I will teach you wisdom.”

Job 33 (KJVS)

[1] Wherefore H199, Job H347, I pray thee, hear H8085 (8798) my speeches H4405, and hearken H238 (8685) to all my words H1697.
[2] Behold, now I have opened H6605 (8804) my mouth H6310, my tongue H3956 hath spoken H1696 (8765) in my mouth H2441.
[3] My words H561 [shall be of] the uprightness H3476 of my heart H3820: and my lips H8193 shall utter H4448 (8765) knowledge H1847 clearly H1305 (8803).
[4] The Spirit H7307 of God H410 hath made H6213 (8804) me, and the breath H5397 of the Almighty H7706 hath given me life H2421 (8762).
[5] If thou canst H3201 (8799) answer H7725 (8687) me, set [thy words] in order H6186 (8798) before H6440 me, stand up H3320 (8690).
[6] Behold, I [am] according to thy wish H6310 in God’s H410 stead: I also am formed H7169 (8795) out of the clay H2563.
[7] Behold, my terror H367 shall not make thee afraid H1204 (8762), neither shall my hand H405 be heavy H3513 (8799) upon thee.
[8] Surely thou hast spoken H559 (8804) in mine hearing H241, and I have heard H8085 (8799) the voice H6963 of [thy] words H4405, [saying],
[9] I am clean H2134 without transgression H6588, I [am] innocent H2643; neither [is there] iniquity H5771 in me.
[10] Behold, he findeth H4672 (8799) occasions H8569 against me, he counteth H2803 (8799) me for his enemy H341 (8802),
[11] He putteth H7760 (8799) my feet H7272 in the stocks H5465, he marketh H8104 (8799) all my paths H734.
[12] Behold, [in] this thou art not just H6663 (8804): I will answer H6030 (8799) thee, that God H433 is greater H7235 (8799) than man H582.
[13] Why dost thou strive H7378 (8804) against him? for he giveth not account H6030 (8799) of any of his matters H1697.
[14] For God H410 speaketh H1696 (8762) once H259, yea twice H8147, [yet man] perceiveth H7789 (8799) it not.
[15] In a dream H2472, in a vision H2384 of the night H3915, when deep H8639 sleep falleth H5307 (8800) upon men H582, in slumberings H8572 upon the bed H4904;
[16] Then he openeth H1540 (8799) the ears H241 of men H582, and sealeth H2856 (8799) their instruction H4561,
[17] That he may withdraw H5493 (8687) man H120 [from his] purpose H4639, and hide H3680 (8762) pride H1466 from man H1397.
[18] He keepeth back H2820 (8799) his soul H5315 from the pit H7845, and his life H2416 from perishing H5674 (8800) by the sword H7973.
[19] He is chastened H3198 (8717) also with pain H4341 upon his bed H4904, and the multitude H7230 (8675) H7379 of his bones H6106 with strong H386 [pain]:
[20] So that his life H2416 abhorreth H2092 (8765) bread H3899, and his soul H5315 dainty H8378 meat H3978.
[21] His flesh H1320 is consumed away H3615 (8799), that it cannot be seen H7210; and his bones H6106 [that] were not seen H7200 (8795) stick out H8192 (8795) (8675) H8205.
[22] Yea, his soul H5315 draweth near H7126 (8799) unto the grave H7845, and his life H2416 to the destroyers H4191 (8688).
[23] If there H3426 be a messenger H4397 with him, an interpreter H3887 (8688), one H259 among a thousand H505, to shew H5046 (8687) unto man H120 his uprightness H3476:
[24] Then he is gracious H2603 (8799) unto him, and saith H559 (8799), Deliver H6308 (8798) him from going down H3381 (8800) to the pit H7845: I have found H4672 (8804) a ransom H3724.
[25] His flesh H1320 shall be fresher H7375 (8738) than a child’s H5290: he shall return H7725 (8799) to the days H3117 of his youth H5934:
[26] He shall pray H6279 (8799) unto God H433, and he will be favourable H7521 (8799) unto him: and he shall see H7200 (8799) his face H6440 with joy H8643: for he will render H7725 (8686) unto man H582 his righteousness H6666.
[27] He looketh H7789 (8799) upon men H582, and [if any] say H559 (8799), I have sinned H2398 (8804), and perverted H5753 (8689) [that which was] right H3477, and it profited H7737 (8804) me not;
[28] He will deliver H6299 (8804) his soul H5315 from going H5674 (8800) into the pit H7845, and his life H2416 shall see H7200 (8799) the light H216.
[29] Lo, all these [things] worketh H6466 (8799) God H410 oftentimes H6471 H7969 with man H1397,
[30] To bring back H7725 (8687) his soul H5315 from the pit H7845, to be enlightened H215 (8736) with the light H216 of the living H2416.
[31] Mark well H7181 (8685), O Job H347, hearken H8085 (8798) unto me: hold thy peace H2790 (8685), and I will speak H1696 (8762).
[32] If thou hast H3426 any thing to say H4405, answer H7725 (8685) me: speak H1696 (8761), for I desire H2654 (8804) to justify H6663 (8763) thee.
[33] If not, hearken H8085 (8798) unto me: hold thy peace H2790 (8685), and I shall teach H502 (8762) thee wisdom H2451.

Young’s Literal Translation

Job 33 (YLT)

[1] And yet, I pray thee, O Job, Hear my speech and to all my words give ear.
[2] Lo, I pray thee, I have opened my mouth, My tongue hath spoken in the palate.
[3] Of the uprightness of my heart are my sayings, And knowledge have my lips clearly spoken.
[4] The Spirit of God hath made me, And the breath of the Mighty doth quicken me.
[5] If thou art able-answer me, Set in array before me-station thyself.
[6] Lo, I am, according to thy word, for God, From the clay I-I also, have been formed.
[7] Lo, my terror doth not frighten thee, And my burden on thee is not heavy.
[8] Surely-thou hast said in mine ears, And the sounds of words I hear:
[9] ‘Pure am I, without transgression, Innocent am I, and I have no iniquity.
[10] Lo, occasions against me He doth find, He doth reckon me for an enemy to Him,
[11] He doth put in the stocks my feet, He doth watch all my paths.’
[12] Lo, in this thou hast not been righteous, I answer thee, that greater is God than man.
[13] Wherefore against Him hast thou striven, When for all His matters He answereth not?
[14] For once doth God speak, and twice, (He doth not behold it.)
[15] In a dream-a vision of night, In the falling of deep sleep on men, In slumberings on a bed.
[16] Then He uncovereth the ear of men, And for their instruction sealeth:
[17] To turn aside man from doing, And pride from man He concealeth.
[18] He keepeth back his soul from corruption, And his life from passing away by a dart.
[19] And he hath been reproved With pain on his bed, And the strife of his bones is enduring.
[20] And his life hath nauseated bread, And his soul desirable food.
[21] His flesh is consumed from being seen, And high are his bones, they were not seen!
[22] And draw near to the pit doth his soul, And his life to those causing death.
[23] If there is by him a messenger, An interpreter-one of a thousand, To declare for man his uprightness:
[24] Then He doth favour him and saith, ‘Ransom him from going down to the pit, I have found an atonement.’
[25] Fresher is his flesh than a child’s, He returneth to the days of his youth.
[26] He maketh supplication unto God, And He accepteth him. And he seeth His face with shouting, And He returneth to man His righteousness.
[27] He looketh on men, and saith, ‘I sinned, And uprightness I have perverted, And it hath not been profitable to me.
[28] He hath ransomed my soul From going over into the pit, And my life on the light looketh.’
[29] Lo, all these doth God work, Twice-thrice with man,
[30] To bring back his soul from the pit, To be enlightened with the light of the living.
[31] Attend, O Job, hearken to me, Keep silent, and I-I do speak.
[32] If there are words-answer me, Speak, for I have a desire to justify thee.
[33] If there are not-hearken thou to me, Keep silent, and I teach thee wisdom.
