Job 23  

Job suffered several catastrophes in one day.

His ten children were killed and his fortune lost. Later, he himself was afflicted with severe boils. Job prayed to die. Finally, the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. God's presence overshadowed even Job's terrible sufferings, and Job was rendered speechless.

Even to day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.
1 of 17
Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!
2 of 17
I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
3 of 17
I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.
4 of 17
Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me.
5 of 17
There the righteous might dispute with him; so should I be delivered for ever from my judge.
6 of 17
Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him:
7 of 17
On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:
8 of 17
But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
9 of 17
My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined.

12 of 17
For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with him.

Therefore am I troubled at his presence: when I consider, I am afraid of him.

15 of 17
Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.
