He cannot answer him one of a thousand.
4 He is dwise in heart, and mighty in strength:
Who hath hardened ehimself against him, and hath prospered?
Which overturneth them in his anger.
6 Which fshaketh the earth out of her place,
And gthe pillars thereof tremble.
And sealeth up the stars.
8 Which alone hspreadeth out the heavens,
And treadeth upon the †waves of the sea.
And kPleiades, and the chambers of the south.
10 lWhich doeth great things past finding out;
Yea, and wonders without number.
11 Lo, he goeth by me, and mI see him not:
He passeth on also, mbut I perceive him not.
12 Behold, he taketh away, †who can hinder him?
nWho will say unto him, What doest thou?
The †proud helpers do stoop under him.
14 oHow much less shall I answer him,
And pchoose out my words to reason with him?
15 qWhom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer,
But I would make supplication to my judge.
Yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.
17 For he rbreaketh me with a tempest,
And multiplieth my wounds swithout cause.
18 He will not suffer me tto take my breath,
But filleth me with bitterness.
19 If I speak uof strength, lo, he is strong:
And if of judgment, wwho shall set me a time to plead?
20 If I justify myself, xmine own mouth shall condemn me:
If I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
I would ydespise my life.
zHe destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.
23 If the ascourge slay suddenly,
He will laugh at the trial of the innocent.
bHe covereth the faces of the judges thereof;
cIf not, where, and who is he?
They flee away, dthey see no good.
As fthe eagle that hasteth to the prey.
27 gIf I say, I will forget my complaint,
I will leave off my heaviness, and hcomfort myself:
I know that thou iwilt not hold me innocent.
Why then labour I in vain?
30 If I wash myself with jsnow water,
And kmake my hands never so clean;
And mine own clothes shall ||abhor me.
And lwe should come together in judgment.
And qlet not his fear terrify me:
†But it is not so with me.
