"However, Job, please hear my speech, and listen to all my words.
See now, I have opened my mouth. My tongue has spoken in my mouth.
My words shall utter the uprightness of my heart. That which my lips know they shall speak sincerely.
The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
If you can, answer me. Set your words in order before me, and stand forth.
Behold, I am toward God even as you are. I am also formed out of the clay.
Behold, my terror shall not make you afraid, neither shall my pressure be heavy on you.
"Surely you have spoken in my hearing, I have heard the voice of your words, saying,
'I am clean, without disobedience. I am innocent, neither is there iniquity in me.
Behold, he finds occasions against me. He counts me for his enemy.
He puts my feet in the stocks. He marks all my paths.'
"Behold, I will answer you. In this you are not just, for God is greater than man.
Why do you strive against him, because he doesn't give account of any of his matters?
For God speaks once, yes twice, though man pays no attention.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, in slumbering on the bed;
Then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction,
That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
He is chastened also with pain on his bed, with continual strife in his bones;
So that his life abhors bread, and his soul dainty food.
His flesh is so consumed away, that it can't be seen. His bones that were not seen stick out.
Yes, his soul draws near to the pit, and his life to the destroyers.
"If there is beside him an angel, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show to man what is right for him;
then God is gracious to him, and says, 'Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom.'
His flesh shall be fresher than a child's. He returns to the days of his youth.
He prays to God, and he is favorable to him, so that he sees his face with joy. He restores to man his righteousness.
He sings before men, and says, 'I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it didn't profit me.
He has redeemed my soul from going into the pit. My life shall see the light.'
"Behold, God works all these things, twice, yes three times, with a man,
to bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the living.
Mark well, Job, and listen to me. Hold your peace, and I will speak.
If you have anything to say, answer me. Speak, for I desire to justify you.
If not, listen to me. Hold your peace, and I will teach you wisdom."
Let us love one another, for love comes from God and every one who loves is a child of God and knows God. He who loves not man does not know God, for God is love. God showed his love for us, for he sent his only Son into the world that through him we might have life. Love ye therefore the stranger.
