Bible: Job 23:8-17
The Inaccessibility and Power of God
23:8 “If I go to the east, he is not there,
and to the west, yet I do not perceive him.
I do not see him; 3
when he turns 4 to the south,
I see no trace of him.
23:10 But he knows the pathway that I take; 5
if he tested me, I would come forth like gold. 6
I have kept to his way and have not turned aside. 9
23:12 I have not departed from the commands of his lips;
I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my allotted portion. 10
Whatever he 13 has desired, he does.
23:14 For he fulfills his decree against me, 14
and many such things are his plans. 15
23:15 That is why I am terrified in his presence;
when I consider, I am afraid because of him.
23:16 Indeed, God has made my heart faint; 16
the Almighty has terrified me.
23:17 Yet I have not been silent because of the darkness,
because of the thick darkness
that covered my face. 17
