|1 Then Job answered and said, 2 Yea, I know that pleading is out of my reach; and his hand has been made heavy upon my groaning. 3 Who would then know that I might find him, and come to an end [of the matter]? 4 And I would plead my own cause, and he would fill my mouth with arguments. 5 And I would know the remedies which he would speak to me, and I would perceive what he would tell me. 6 Though he should come on me in [his] great strength, then he would not threaten me; 7 for truth and reproof are from him; and he would bring forth my judgment to an end. 8 For if I shall go first, and exist no longer, still what do I know [concerning] the latter end? 9 When he wrought on the left hand, then I observed [it] not: his right hand shall encompass me but I shall not see [it]. 10 For he knows already my way; and he has tried me as gold. 11 And I will go forth according to his commandments, for I have kept his ways; and I shall not turn aside from his commandments, 12 neither shall I transgress; but I have hid his words in my bosom. 13 And if too he has thus judged, who is he that has contradicted, for he has both willed [a thing] and done it. 14 15 Therefore am I troubled at him; and when I was reproved, I thought of him. Therefore let me take good heed before him: I will consider, and be afraid of him. 16 But the Lord has softened my heart, and the Almighty has troubled me. 17 For I knew not that darkness would come upon me, and thick darkness has covered [me] before my face.||
ΥΠΟΛΑΒΩΝ δὲ ᾿Ιὼβ λέγει· 2 καὶ δὴ οἶδα ὅτι ἐκ χειρός μου ἡ ἔλεγξίς ἐστι, καὶ ἡ χεὶρ αὐτοῦ βαρεῖα γέγονεν ἐπ᾿ ἐμῷ στεναγμῷ. 3 τίς δ᾿ ἄρα γνοίη ὅτι εὕροιμι αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλθοιμι εἰς τέλος; 4 εἴποιμι δὲ ἐμαυτοῦ κρίμα, τὸ δὲ στόμα μου ἐμπλήσαι ἐλέγχων· 5 γνοίην δὲ ἰάματα, ἅ μοι ἐρεῖ, αἰσθοίμην δέ τίνα μοι ἀπαγγελεῖ. 6 καὶ ἐν πολλῇ ἰσχύϊ ἐπελεύσεταί μοι, εἶτα ἐν ἀπειλῇ μοι οὐ χρήσεται· 7 ἀλήθεια γὰρ καὶ ἔλεγχος παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ, ἐξαγάγοι δὲ εἰς τέλος τὸ κρίμα μου· 8 εἰς γὰρ πρῶτα πορεύσομαι καὶ οὐκέτι εἰμί· τὰ δὲ ἐπ᾿ ἐσχάτοις τί οἶδα; 9 ἀριστερὰ ποιήσαντος αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ κατέσχον· περιβαλεῖ δεξιά, καὶ οὐκ ὄψεται. 10 εἶδε γὰρ ἤδη ὁδόν μου, διέκρινε δέ με ὥσπερ τὸ χρυσίον. 11 ἐξελεύσομαι δὲ ἐν ἐντάλμασιν αὐτοῦ, ὁδοὺς γὰρ αὐτοῦ ἐφύλαξα καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐκκλίνω 12 ἀπὸ ἐνταλμάτων αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ μὴ παρέλθω, ἐν δὲ κόλπῳ μου ἔκρυψα ῥήματα αὐτοῦ. 13 εἰ δὲ καὶ αὐτὸς ἔκρινεν οὕτως, τίς ἐστιν ὁ ἀντειπὼν αὐτῷ; ὃ γὰρ αὐτὸς ἠθέλησε, καὶ ἐποίησε. 14 διὰ τοῦτο ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ ἐσπούδακα, νουθετούμενος δὲ ἐφρόντισα αὐτοῦ. 15 ἐπὶ τούτῳ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ κατασπουδασθῶ· κατανοήσω καὶ πτοηθήσομαι ἐξ αὐτοῦ. 16 Κύριος δὲ ἐμαλάκυνε τὴν καρδίαν μου, ὁ δὲ Παντοκράτωρ ἐσπούδασέ με· 17 οὐ γὰρ ᾔδειν ὅτι ἐπελεύσεταί μοι σκότος, πρὸ προσώπου δέ μου ἐκάλυψε γνόφος.
