Job 9

1Then Job answered and said,

2I know it is so of a truth:

But how should man be just with God?

3If he will contend with him,

He cannot answer him one of a thousand.

4He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength:

Who hath hardened himselfagainst him, and hath prospered?

5Which removeth the mountains, and they know not:

Which overturneth them in his anger.

6Which shaketh the earth out of her place,

And the pillars thereof tremble.

7Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not;

And sealeth up the stars.

8Which alone spreadeth out the heavens,

And treadeth upon the waves of the sea.

9Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades,

And the chambers of the south.

10Which doeth great things past finding out;

Yea, and wonders without number.

11Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not:

He passeth on also, but I perceive him not.

12Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him?

Who will say unto him, What doest thou?
