KJV JOB9 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekJOB8.htm JOB10.htm
9:1 Then Job [H347] answered [H6030] and said [H559] ,
9:2 I know [H3045] [it is] so of a truth [H551] : but how should man [H582] be just [H6663] with God [H410] ?(with God: or, before God?)
9:3 If he will [H2654] contend [H7378] with him, he cannot answer [H6030] him one [H259] of a thousand [H505] .
9:4 [He is] wise [H2450] in heart [H3824] , and mighty [H533] in strength [H3581] : who hath hardened [H7185] [himself] against him, and hath prospered [H7999] ?
9:5 Which removeth [H6275] the mountains [H2022] , and they know [H3045] not: which overturneth [H2015] them in his anger [H639] .
9:6 Which shaketh [H7264] the earth [H776] out of her place [H4725] , and the pillars [H5982] thereof tremble [H6426] .
9:7 Which commandeth [H559] the sun [H2775] , and it riseth [H2224] not; and sealeth up [H2856] the stars [H3556] .
9:8 Which alone spreadeth out [H5186] the heavens [H8064] , and treadeth [H1869] upon the waves [H1116] of the sea [H3220] .(waves: Heb. heights)
9:9 Which maketh [H6213] Arcturus [H5906] , Orion [H3685] , and Pleiades [H3598] , and the chambers [H2315] of the south [H8486] .(Arcturus: Heb. Ash, Cesil, and Cimah)
9:10 Which doeth [H6213] great things [H1419] past [H369] finding out [H2714] ; yea, and wonders [H6381] without number [H4557] .
9:11 Lo, he goeth [H5674] by me, and I see [H7200] [him] not: he passeth on [H2498] also, but I perceive [H995] him not.
9:12 Behold, he taketh away [H2862] , who can hinder [H7725] him? who will say [H559] unto him, What doest [H6213] thou?(hinder: Heb. turn him away?)
9:13 [If] God [H433] will not withdraw [H7725] his anger [H639] , the proud [H7293] helpers [H5826] do stoop [H7817] under him.(proud: Heb. helpers of pride, or, strength)
9:14 How much less shall I answer [H6030] him, [and] choose out [H977] my words [H1697] [to reason] with him?
9:15 Whom, though I were righteous [H6663] , [yet] would I not answer [H6030] , [but] I would make supplication [H2603] to my judge [H8199] .
9:16 If I had called [H7121] , and he had answered [H6030] me; [yet] would I not believe [H539] that he had hearkened [H238] unto my voice [H6963] .
9:17 For he breaketh [H7779] me with a tempest [H8183] , and multiplieth [H7235] my wounds [H6482] without cause [H2600] .
9:18 He will not suffer [H5414] me to take [H7725] my breath [H7307] , but filleth [H7646] me with bitterness [H4472] .
9:19 If [I speak] of strength [H3581] , lo, [he is] strong [H533] : and if of judgment [H4941] , who shall set [H3259] me a time [to plead]?
9:20 If I justify [H6663] myself, mine own mouth [H6310] shall condemn [H7561] me: [if I say], I [am] perfect [H8535] , it shall also prove me perverse [H6140] .
9:21 [Though] I [were] perfect [H8535] , [yet] would I not know [H3045] my soul [H5315] : I would despise [H3988] my life [H2416] .
9:22 This [is] one [H259] [thing], therefore I said [H559] [it], He destroyeth [H3615] the perfect [H8535] and the wicked [H7563] .
9:23 If the scourge [H7752] slay [H4191] suddenly [H6597] , he will laugh [H3932] at the trial [H4531] of the innocent [H5355] .
9:24 The earth [H776] is given [H5414] into the hand [H3027] of the wicked [H7563] : he covereth [H3680] the faces [H6440] of the judges [H8199] thereof; if not, where [H645] , [and] who [is] he?
9:25 Now my days [H3117] are swifter [H7043] than a post [H7323] : they flee away [H1272] , they see [H7200] no good [H2896] .
9:26 They are passed away [H2498] as [H5973] the swift [H16] ships [H591] : as the eagle [H5404] [that] hasteth [H2907] to the prey [H400] .(swift: or, ships of Ebeh: Heb. ships of desire)
9:27 If I say [H559] , I will forget [H7911] my complaint [H7879] , I will leave off [H5800] my heaviness [H6440] , and comfort [H1082] [myself]:
9:28 I am afraid [H3025] of all my sorrows [H6094] , I know [H3045] that thou wilt not hold me innocent [H5352] .
9:29 [If] I be wicked [H7561] , why then labour [H3021] I in vain [H1892] ?
9:30 If I wash [H7364] myself with [H7950] snow water [H4325] [H1119] , and make my hands [H3709] never [H1252] [H1253] so clean [H2141] ;
9:31 Yet [H227] shalt thou plunge [H2881] me in the ditch [H7845] , and mine own clothes [H8008] shall abhor [H8581] me.(abhor: or, make me to be abhorred)
9:32 For [he is] not a man [H376] , as I [am, that] I should answer [H6030] him, [and] we should come [H935] together [H3162] in judgment [H4941] .
9:33 Neither is [H3426] there any daysman [H3198] betwixt us, [that] might lay [H7896] his hand [H3027] upon us both [H8147] .(any: Heb. one that should argue)(daysman: or, umpire)
9:34 Let him take [H5493] his rod [H7626] away [H5493] from me, and let not his fear [H367] terrify [H1204] me:
9:35 [Then] would I speak [H1696] , and not fear [H3372] him; but [it is] not so with me.(it is: Heb. I am not so with myself)
