Job 9:1-16

Job Replies: There Is No Mediator

9Then Job answered:
2 ‘Indeed I know that this is so;
   but how can a mortal be just before God?
3 If one wished to contend with him,
   one could not answer him once in a thousand.
4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength
—who has resisted him, and succeeded?—
5 he who removes mountains, and they do not know it,
   when he overturns them in his anger;
6 who shakes the earth out of its place,
   and its pillars tremble;
7 who commands the sun, and it does not rise;
   who seals up the stars;
8 who alone stretched out the heavens
   and trampled the waves of the Sea;*
9 who made the Bear and Orion,
   the Pleiades and the chambers of the south;
10 who does great things beyond understanding,
   and marvellous things without number.
11 Look, he passes by me, and I do not see him;
   he moves on, but I do not perceive him.
12 He snatches away; who can stop him?
   Who will say to him, “What are you doing?”


13 ‘God will not turn back his anger;
   the helpers of Rahab bowed beneath him.
14 How then can I answer him,
   choosing my words with him?
15 Though I am innocent, I cannot answer him;
   I must appeal for mercy to my accuser.*
16 If I summoned him and he answered me,
   I do not believe that he would listen to my voice.
