1 Howbeit hear, Job, my words, and hearken to my speech. 2 For behold, I have opened my mouth, and my tongue has spoken. 3 My heart [shall be found] pure by [my] words; and the understanding of my lips shall meditate purity. 4 The Divine Spirit is that which formed me, and the breath of the Almighty that which teaches me. 5 If thou canst, give me an answer: wait therefore; stand against me, and I [will stand] against thee. 6 Thou art formed out of the clay as also I: we have been formed out of the same [substance]. 7 My fear shall not terrify thee, neither shall my hand be heavy upon thee. 8 But thou hast said in mine ears, (I have heard the voice of thy words;) because thou sayest, I am pure, not having sinned; 9 I am blameless, for I have not transgressed. 10 Yet he has discovered a charge against me, and he has reckoned me as an adversary. 11 And he has put my foot in the stocks, and has watched all my ways. 12 For how sayest thou, I am righteous, yet he has not hearkened to me? for he that is above mortals is eternal. 13 But thou sayest, Why has he not heard every word of my cause? 14 For when the Lord speaks once, or a second time, 15 [sending] a dream, or in the meditation of the night; (as when a dreadful alarm happens to fall upon men, in slumberings on the bed:) 16 then opens he the understanding of men: he scares them with such fearful visions: 17 to turn a man from unrighteousness, and he delivers his body from a fall. 18 He spares also his soul from death, and [suffers] him not to fall in war. 19 And again, he chastens him with sickness on his bed, and the multitude of his bones is benumbed. 20 And he shall not be able to take any food, though his soul shall desire meat; 21 until his flesh shall be consumed, and he shall shew his bones bare. 22 His soul also draws nigh to death, and his life is in Hades. 23 Though there should be a thousand messengers of death, not one of them shall wound him: if he should purpose in his heart to turn to the Lord, and declare to man his fault, and shew his folly; 24 he will support him, that he should not perish, and will restore his body as [fresh] plaster upon a wall; and he will fill his bones with marrow. 25 And he will make his flesh tender as that of a babe, and he will restore him among men in [his] full strength. 26 And he shall pray to the Lord, and his prayer shall be accepted of him; he shall enter with a cheerful countenance, with a full expression [of praise]: for he will render to men [their] due. 27 Even then a man shall blame himself, saying, What kind of things have I done? and he has not punished me according to the full amount of my sins. 28 Deliver my soul, that it may not go to destruction, and my life shall see the light. 29 Behold, all these things, the Mighty One works in a threefold manner with a man. 30 And he has delivered my soul from death, that my life may praise him in the light. 31 Hearken, Job, and hear me: be silent, and I will speak. 32 If thou hast words, answer me: speak, for I desire thee to be justified. 33 If not, do thou hear me: be silent, and I will teach thee. ΟΥ μὴν δὲ ἀλλὰ ἄκουσον, ᾿Ιώβ, τὰ ῥήματά μου καὶ λαλιὰν ἐνωτίζου μου· 2 ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἤνοιξα τὸ στόμα μου, καὶ ἐλάλησεν ἡ γλῶσσά μου. 3 καθαρά μου ἡ καρδία ρήμασι, σύνεσις δὲ χειλέων μου καθαρὰ νοήσει. 4 πνεῦμα θεῖον τὸ ποιῆσάν με, πνοὴ δὲ Παντοκράτορος ἡ διδάσκουσά με. 5 ἐὰν δύνῃ, δός μοι ἀπόκρισιν πρὸς ταῦτα· ὑπόμεινον, στῆθι κατ᾿ ἐμὲ καὶ ἐγὼ κατὰ σέ. 6 ἐκ πηλοῦ διήρτισαι σὺ ὡς καὶ ἐγώ, ἐκ τοῦ αὐτοῦ διηρτίσμεθα. 7 οὐχ ὁ φόβος μού σε στροβήσει, οὐδὲ ἡ χείρ μου βαρεῖα ἔσται ἐπὶ σοί. 8 πλὴν εἶπας ἐν ὠσί μου, φωνὴν ρημάτων σου ἀκήκοα, 9 διότι λέγεις· καθαρός εἰμι οὐχ ἁμαρτών, ἄμεμπτός εἰμι, οὐ γὰρ ἠνόμησα. 10 μέμψιν δὲ κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ εὗρεν, ἥγηται δέ με ὥσπερ ὑπεναντίον· 11 ἔθετο δὲ ἐν ξύλῳ τὸν πόδα μου, ἐφύλαξε δέ μου πάσας τὰς ὁδούς· 12 πῶς γὰρ λέγεις· δίκαιός εἰμι, καὶ οὐκ ἐπακήκοέ μου; αἰώνιος γάρ ἐστιν ὁ ἐπάνω βροτῶν. 13 λέγεις δέ· διατί τῆς δίκης μου οὐκ ἐπακήκοέ μου πᾶν ρῆμα; 14 ἐν γὰρ τῷ ἅπαξ λαλῆσαι ὁ Κύριος, ἐν δὲ τῷ δευτέρῳ 15 ἐνύπνιον, ἢ ἐν μελέτῃ νυκτερινῇ, ὡς ὅταν ἐπιπίπτῃ δεινὸς φόβος ἐπ᾿ ἀνθρώπους ἐπὶ νυσταγμάτων ἐπὶ κοίτης. 16 τότε ἀνακαλύπτει νοῦν ἀνθρώπων, ἐν εἴδεσι φόβου τοιούτοις αὐτοὺς ἐξεφόβησεν 17 ἀποστρέψαι ἄνθρωπον ἀπὸ ἀδικίας, τὸ δὲ σῶμα αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ πτώματος ἐρρύσατο. 18 ἐφείσατο δὲ τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ θανάτου καὶ μὴ πεσεῖν αὐτὸν ἐν πολέμῳ. 19 πάλιν δὲ ἤλεγξεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ μαλακίᾳ ἐπὶ κοίτης καὶ πλῆθος ὀστῶν αὐτοῦ ἐνάρκησε· 20 πᾶν δὲ βρωτὸν σίτου οὐ μὴ δύνηται προσδέξασθαι καὶ ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ βρῶσιν ἐπιθυμήσει, 21 ἕως ἂν σαπῶσιν αὐτοῦ αἱ σάρκες καὶ ἀποδείξῃ τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτοῦ κενά· 22 ἤγγισε δὲ εἰς θάνατον ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ, ἡ δὲ ζωὴ αὐτοῦ ἐν ᾅδη. 23 ἐὰν ὦσι χίλιοι ἄγγελοι θανατηφόροι, εἷς αὐτῶν οὐ μὴ τρώσῃ αὐτόν· ἐὰν νοήσῃ τῇ καρδίᾳ ἐπιστραφῆναι πρὸς Κύριον, ἀναγγείλῃ δὲ ἀνθρώπῳ τὴν ἑαυτοῦ μέμψιν, τὴν δὲ ἄνοιαν αὐτοῦ δείξῃ, 24 ἀνθέξεται τοῦ μὴ πεσεῖν εἰς θάνατον, ἀνανεώσει δὲ αὐτοῦ τὸ σῶμα ὥσπερ ἀλοιφὴν ἐπὶ τοίχου, τὰ δὲ ὀστᾶ αὐτοῦ ἐμπλήσει μυελοῦ· 25 ἁπαλυνεῖ δὲ αὐτοῦ τὰς σάρκας ὥσπερ νηπίου, ἀποκαταστήσει δὲ αὐτὸν ἀνδρωθέντα ἐν ἀνθρώποις. 26 εὐξάμενος δὲ πρὸς Κύριον, καὶ δεκτὰ αὐτῷ ἔσται, εἰσελεύσεται προσώπῳ ἱλαρῷ σὺν ἐξηγορίᾳ· ἀποδώσει δὲ ἀνθρώποις δικαιοσύνην. 27 εἶτα τότε ἀπομέμψεται ἄνθρωπος αὐτὸς ἑαυτῷ λέγον· οἷα συνετέλουν καὶ οὐκ ἄξια ἤτασέ με ὧν ἥμαρτον. 28 σῶσον ψυχήν μου τοῦ μὴ ἐλθεῖν εἰς διαφθοράν, καὶ ἡ ζωή μου φῶς ὄψεται. 29 ἰδοὺ ταῦτα πάντα ἐργᾶται ὁ ἰσχυρὸς ὁδοὺς τρεῖς μετὰ ἀνδρός. 30 καὶ ἐρρύσατο τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ θανάτου, ἵνα ἡ ζωή μου ἐν φωτὶ αἰνῇ αὐτόν. 31 ἐνωτίζου, ᾿Ιώβ, καὶ ἄκουέ μου· κώφευσον, καὶ ἐγώ εἰμι λαλήσω. 32 εἰ εἰσί σοι λόγοι, ἀποκρίθητί μοι· λάλησον, θέλω γὰρ δικαιωθῆναί σε. 33 εἰ μή, σὺ ἄκουσόν μου· κώφευσον καὶ διδάξω σε σοφίαν.
