KJV JOB23 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB22.htm JOB24.htm
23:1 Then Job [H347] answered [H6030] and said [H559] ,
23:2 Even to day [H3117] [is] my complaint [H7879] bitter [H4805] : my stroke [H3027] is heavier [H3513] than my groaning [H585] .(stroke: Heb. hand)
23:3 Oh that [H5414] I knew [H3045] where I might find [H4672] him! [that] I might come [H935] [even] to his seat [H8499] !
23:4 I would order [H6186] [my] cause [H4941] before [H6440] him, and fill [H4390] my mouth [H6310] with arguments [H8433] .
23:5 I would know [H3045] the words [H4405] [which] he would answer [H6030] me, and understand [H995] what he would say [H559] unto me.
23:6 Will he plead [H7378] against [H5978] me with [his] great [H7230] power [H3581] ? No; but he would put [H7760] [strength] in me.
23:7 There the righteous [H3477] might dispute [H3198] with him; so should I be delivered [H6403] for ever [H5331] from my judge [H8199] .
23:8 Behold, I go [H1980] forward [H6924] , but he [is] not [there]; and backward [H268] , but I cannot perceive [H995] him:
23:9 On the left hand [H8040] , where he doth work [H6213] , but I cannot behold [H2372] [him]: he hideth [H5848] himself on the right hand [H3225] , that I cannot see [H7200] [him]:
23:10 But he knoweth [H3045] the way [H1870] that I take [H5978] : [when] he hath tried [H974] me, I shall come forth [H3318] as gold [H2091] .(that: Heb. that is with me)
23:11 My foot [H7272] hath held [H270] his steps [H838] , his way [H1870] have I kept [H8104] , and not declined [H5186] .
23:12 Neither have I gone back [H4185] from the commandment [H4687] of his lips [H8193] ; I have esteemed [H6845] the words [H561] of his mouth [H6310] more than my necessary [H2706] [food].(esteemed: Heb. hid, or, laid up)(my: or, my appointed portion)
23:13 But he [is] in one [H259] [mind], and who can turn [H7725] him? and [what] his soul [H5315] desireth [H183] , even [that] he doeth [H6213] .
23:14 For he performeth [H7999] [the thing that is] appointed [H2706] for me: and many [H7227] such [H2007] [things are] with him.
23:15 Therefore am I troubled [H926] at his presence [H6440] : when I consider [H995] , I am afraid [H6342] of him.
23:16 For God [H410] maketh my heart [H3820] soft [H7401] , and the Almighty [H7706] troubleth [H926] me:
23:17 Because I was not cut off [H6789] before [H6440] the darkness [H2822] , [neither] hath he covered [H3680] the darkness [H652] from my face [H6440] .
