1 Then Job answered the LORD and said:
"I know that You a can do everything,
And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You. 3 You asked, b 'Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?'
Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,
c Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. 4 Listen, please, and let me speak;
You said, d 'I will question you, and you shall answer Me.' 5 "I have e heard of You by the hearing of the ear,
But now my eye sees You. 6 Therefore I f abhor 1 myself,
And repent in dust and ashes."
