Job 23
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Job answered and said:

2“Also today my tale is bitter and his hand has been heavy on my groaning

3But who makes it possible for me to arrive unto his seat?

4And I shall set judgment in order before him and I shall fill my mouth with rebuke

5And I had known what he answered me and I had understood what he said to me

6In the abundance of power he judged with me, and otherwise there was awe laid upon me

7There I would have judged justly with him, and I would have been justified, for I would have been allowed to escape in judgment

8If he goes before me I do not know, or from behind him I do not perceive him

9I looked at my left and he did not appear to me, and I turned to my right and I did not see him

10He has known my way and my existence and he has tested me as gold, and I came forth

11And my feet were established in his steps; his ways I have kept

12And I have not despised the commands of his lips, and I have not departed from his pleasure. I have kept the words of his mouth

13And in what one of these will he return to me, for his soul delights and he does it?

14However, he completed his covenant, and there are many things like these with him

15Because of this, I am afraid before him, I consider and I am shaken by him

16Because God has shaken my heart and my head is shaken

17Because I was not silenced by the presence of the darkness and by the presence of the veil of gloom
