1Then Job answered:
8"Behold, I go forward, but he is not there;
and backward, but I cannot perceive him;
9on the left hand I seek him, but I cannot behold him;
I turn to the right hand, but I cannot see him.
10But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
11My foot has held fast to his steps;
I have kept his way and have not turned aside.
12I have not departed from the commandment of his lips;
I have treasured in my bosom the words of his mouth.
13But he is unchangeable and who can turn him?
What he desires, that he does.
14For he will complete what he appoints for me;
and many such things are in his mind.
15Therefore I am terrified at his presence;
when I consider, I am in dread of him.
16God has made my heart faint;
the Almighty has terrified me;
17for I am hemmed in by darkness,
and thick darkness covers my face.
