Job's Reply to Bildad What You Say Is True 9 1Job said: 2 What you say is true. No human is innocent in the sight of God. 3Not once in a thousand times could we win our case if we took him to court. 4God is wise and powerful— who could possibly oppose him and win? 5When God becomes angry, he can move mountains before they even know it. 6God can shake the earth loose from its foundations 7 or command the sun and stars to hold back their light. 8God alone stretched out the sky, stepped on the sea,[W] 9 and set the stars in place— the Big Dipper and Orion, the Pleiades and the stars in the southern sky. 10Of all the miracles God works, we cannot understand a one. 11God walks right past me, without making a sound. 12And if he grabs something, who can stop him or raise a question?   13When God showed his anger, the servants of the sea monster[X] fell at his feet. 14How, then, could I possibly argue my case with God? Though I Am Innocent 15Even though I am innocent, I can only beg for mercy. 16And if God came into court when I called him, he would not hear my case. 17He would strike me with a storm[Y] and increase my injuries for no reason at all. 18Before I could get my breath, my miseries would multiply. 19God is much stronger than I am, and who would call me into court to give me justice?   20Even if I were innocent, God would prove me wrong.[Z] 21I am not guilty, but I no longer care what happens to me. 22What difference does it make? God destroys the innocent along with the guilty. 23When a good person dies a sudden death, God sits back and laughs. 24And who else but God blindfolds the judges, then lets the wicked take over the earth? My Life Is Speeding By 25My life is speeding by, without a hope of happiness. 26Each day passes swifter than a sailing ship or an eagle swooping down. 27Sometimes I try to be cheerful and to stop complaining, 28but my sufferings frighten me, because I know that God still considers me guilty. 29So what's the use of trying to prove my innocence? 30Even if I washed myself with the strongest soap, 31God would throw me into a pit of stinking slime, leaving me disgusting to my clothes.   32God isn't a mere human like me. I can't put him on trial. 33Who could possibly judge between the two of us? 34Can someone snatch away the stick God carries to frighten me? 35Then I could speak up without fear of him, but for now, I cannot speak.[A]
