Bible: Job 42:1-6

Job’s Confession

42:1 Then Job answered the Lord:

42:2I know that you can do all things;

no purpose of yours can be thwarted;

42:3 you asked, 1 

‘Who is this who darkens counsel

without knowledge?’

But 2  I have declared without understanding 3 

things too wonderful for me to know. 4 

42:4 You said, 5 

‘Pay attention, and I will speak;

I will question you, and you will answer me.’

42:5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,

but now my eye has seen you. 6 

42:6 Therefore I despise myself, 7 

and I repent in dust and ashes!
