Job 37:23; Job 40:2; Job 42:1–6

23  The Almightywe kcannot find him;

he is lgreat in power;

mjustice and abundant righteousness he will not nviolate.


Shall a faultfinder ycontend with the Almighty?

He who argues with God, let him answer it.


Job’s Confession and Repentance

42 Then Job answered the Lord and said:

I know that you can hdo all things,

and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.

iWho is this that hides counsel without knowledge?

Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,

things jtoo wonderful for me, which I did not know.

Hear, and I will speak;

kI will question you, and you make it known to me.

I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,

but now my eye sees you;

therefore I despise myself,

and repent1 in ldust and ashes.
