33 But now, Job, pay attention to my speech,
and listen to all my words.
my tongue will form words on my palate.
3 My words come from my uprightf heart,
and my lips speak with sincerity what they know.
I was also pinched off from a piece of clay.k
7 Fearl of me should not terrify you;
no pressure from me should weigh you down.
and I have heard these veryD words:
I am clean and have no iniquity.m

13 Why do you takeq him to court
for not answering anything a person asks?E
but a person may not notice it.
15 In a dream, a visionr in the night,
when deep sleep comes over peoples

16 he uncovers their earst

18 God spares his soul from the Pit,u

19 A person may be disciplined on his bedv with pain

32 But if you have something to say,E answer me;
speak, for I would like to justify you.
be quiet, and I will teach you wisdom.
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
