Job’s Eighth Speech: A Response to Eliphaz

23Then Job spoke again.H347H6030H559 2"My complaint today is still a bitter one, and I try hard not to groan aloud.H3117H7879H4805H3027H3513H585 3If only I knew where to find God, I would go to his court.H5414H3045H4672H935H8499 4I would lay out my case and present my arguments.H6186H4941H6440H4390H6310H8433 5Then I would listen to his reply and understand what he says to me.H3045H4405H6030H995H559 6Would he use his great power to argue with me? No, he would give me a fair hearing.H7378H5978H7230H3581H7760 7Honest people can reason with him, so I would be forever acquitted by my judge.H3477H3198H6403H5331H8199 8I go east, but he is not there. I go west, but I cannot find him.H1980H6924H268H995 9I do not see him in the north, for he is hidden. I look to the south, but he is concealed.H8040H6213H2372H5848H3225H7200 10"But he knows where I am going. And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold.H3045H1870H5978H974H3318H2091 11For I have stayed on God's paths; I have followed his ways and not turned aside.H7272H270H838H1870H8104H5186 12I have not departed from his commands, but have treasured his words more than daily food.H4185H4687H8193H6845H561H6310H2706 13But once he has made his decision, who can change his mind? Whatever he wants to do, he does.H259H7725H5315H183H6213 14So he will do to me whatever he has planned. He controls my destiny.H7999H2706H7227H2007 15No wonder I am so terrified in his presence. When I think of it, terror grips me.H926H6440H995H6342 16God has made me sick at heart; the Almighty has terrified me.H410H3820H7401H7706H926 17Darkness is all around me; thick, impenetrable darkness is everywhere.H6789H6440H2822H3680H652H6440
