Job 9:1–12

Job: There is No Mediator

9 Then Job answered and said:

2 “Truly I know it is so,

But how can a aman be brighteous before God?

3 If one wished to 1contend with Him,

He could not answer Him one time out of a thousand.

4 cGod is wise in heart and mighty in strength.

Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered?

5 He removes the mountains, and they do not know

When He overturns them in His anger;

6 He dshakes the earth out of its place,

And its epillars tremble;

7 He commands the sun, and it does not rise;

He seals off the stars;

8 fHe alone spreads out the heavens,

And 2treads on the 3waves of the sea;

9 gHe made 4the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades,

And the chambers of the south;

10 hHe does great things past finding out,

Yes, wonders without number.

11 iIf He goes by me, I do not see Him;

If He moves past, I do not perceive Him;

12 jIf He takes away, 5who can hinder Him?

Who can say to Him, ‘What are You doing?’
