The Wise in Heart - Job 9

Job 9:1 Then Job answered and said, 

Job 9:2 I know it is so  of a truth: but how should man be just with God? 

Job 9:3 If  he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a  thousand. 

Job 9:4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in  strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath  prospered? 

Job 9:5 Which removeth the mountains, and they  know not: which overturneth them in his anger. 


Job 9:6  Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars  thereof tremble. 

Job 9:7 Which commandeth the sun, and it  riseth not; and sealeth up the stars. 

Job 9:8 Which alone  spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of  the sea. 

Job 9:9 Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades,  and the chambers of the south. 

Job 9:10 Which doeth great  things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.  

Job 9:11 Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth  on also, but I perceive him not. 

Job 9:12 Behold, he taketh  away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What  doest thou? 

Job 9:13 If God will not withdraw his anger, the  proud helpers do stoop under him. 

Job 9:14 How much less  shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason  with him? 

Job 9:15 Whom, though I were righteous, yet  would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my  judge. 

Job 9:16 If I had called, and he had answered me; yet  would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.  

Job 9:17 For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth  my wounds without cause. 

Job 9:18 He will not suffer me to  take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness. 

Job 9:19 If I  speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment,  who shall set me a time to plead? 

Job 9:20 If I justify  myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am  perfect, it shall also prove me perverse. 

Job 9:21 Though I  were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would  despise my life. 

Job 9:22 This is one thing, therefore I said  it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked. 

Job 9:23 If the  scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the  innocent. 

Job 9:24 The earth is given into the hand of the  wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not,  where, and who is he? 

Job 9:25 Now my days are swifter  than a post: they flee away, they see no good. 

Job 9:26 They  are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that  hasteth to the prey. 

Job 9:27 If I say, I will forget my  complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort  myself: 

Job 9:28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that  thou wilt not hold me innocent. 

Job 9:29 If I be wicked,  why then labour I in vain? 

Job 9:30 If I wash myself with  snow water, and make my hands never so clean; 

Job 9:31 Yet  shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes  shall abhor me. 

Job 9:32 For he is not a man, as I am, that  I should answer him, and we should come together in  judgment. 

Job 9:33 Neither is there any daysman betwixt us,  that might lay his hand upon us both. 

Job 9:34 Let him take  his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me: 

Job 9:35  Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so  with me.  KJV
