42 Then Job answered the Lord and said:
2 “I know that You acan do everything,
And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.
3 You asked, b‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’
Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,
cThings too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
You said, d‘I will question you, and you shall answer Me.’
5 “I have eheard of You by the hearing of the ear,
But now my eye sees You.
And repent in dust and ashes.”
