1 ὑπολαβὼν δὲ Ιωβ λέγει 2 καὶ δὴ οἶδα ὅτι ἐκ χειρός μου ἡ ἔλεγξίς ἐστιν καὶ ἡ χεὶρ αὐτοῦ βαρεῖα γέγονεν ἐ{P'} ἐμῷ στεναγμῷ 3 τίς {D'} ἄρα γνοίη ὅτι εὕροιμι αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλθοιμι εἰς τέλος 4 εἴποιμι δὲ ἐμαυτοῦ κρίμα τὸ δὲ στόμα μου ἐμπλήσαιμι ἐλέγχων 5 γνῴην δὲ ῥήματα ἅ μοι ἐρεῖ αἰσθοίμην δὲ τίνα μοι ἀπαγγελεῖ 6 καὶ εἰ ἐν πολλῇ ἰσχύι ἐπελεύσεταί μοι εἶτα ἐν ἀπειλῇ μοι οὐ χρήσεται 7 ἀλήθεια γὰρ καὶ ἔλεγχος πα{R'} αὐτοῦ ἐξαγάγοι δὲ εἰς τέλος τὸ κρίμα μου 1 But Job answered: 2 And still I repine bitterly as ever, no groaning too heavy for the wounds I bear. 3 Ah, if I could but find my way to God, reach his very throne, 4 in reproachful accents plead my suit before him, 5 and learn what he would say in his defence, grasp the meaning of it! 6 Will he match his strength with mine, use all his majestic power to crush me? 7 The justice of my cause once made known to him, I should triumph at last. 1 Respondens autem Job, ait: 2

Nunc quoque in amaritudine est sermo meus,
et manus plagæ meæ aggravata est super gemitum meum.
3
Quis mihi tribuat ut cognoscam et inveniam illum,
et veniam usque ad solium ejus?
4
Ponam coram eo judicium,
et os meum replebo increpationibus:
5
ut sciam verba quæ mihi respondeat,
et intelligam quid loquatur mihi.
6
Nolo multa fortitudine contendat mecum,
nec magnitudinis suæ mole me premat.
7
Proponat æquitatem contra me,
et perveniat ad victoriam judicium meum.
8 εἰς γὰρ πρῶτα πορεύσομαι καὶ οὐκέτι εἰμί τὰ δὲ ἐ{P'} ἐσχάτοις τί οἶδα 9 ἀριστερὰ ποιήσαντος αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ κατέσχον περιβαλεῖ δεξιά καὶ οὐκ ὄψομαι 10 οἶδεν γὰρ ἤδη ὁδόν μου διέκρινεν δέ με ὥσπερ τὸ χρυσίον 11 ἐξελεύσομαι δὲ ἐν ἐντάλμασιν αὐτοῦ ὁδοὺς γὰρ αὐτοῦ ἐφύλαξα καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐκκλίνω 12 ἀπὸ ἐνταλμάτων αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ μὴ παρέλθω ἐν δὲ κόλπῳ μου ἔκρυψα ῥήματα αὐτοῦ 13 εἰ δὲ καὶ αὐτὸς ἔκρινεν οὕτως τίς ἐστιν ὁ ἀντειπὼν αὐτῷ ὃ γὰρ αὐτὸς ἠθέλησεν καὶ ἐποίησεν 14 διὰ τοῦτο ἐ{P'} αὐτῷ ἐσπούδακα νουθετούμενος δὲ ἐφρόντισα αὐτοῦ 15 ἐπὶ τούτῳ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ κατασπουδασθῶ κατανοήσω καὶ πτοηθήσομαι ἐξ αὐτοῦ 16 κύριος δὲ ἐμαλάκυνεν τὴν καρδίαν μου ὁ δὲ παντοκράτωρ ἐσπούδασέν με 17 οὐ γὰρ ᾔδειν ὅτι ἐπελεύσεταί μοι σκότος πρὸ προσώπου δέ μου ἐκάλυψεν γνόφος 8 But no; travel I east or west, I find no trace of him, 9 turn I north or south, I have no skill to catch sight of him. 10 And he, all the while, keeps watch over my doings, tests me like gold the fire assays; 11 he knows how close I have kept to the path he traced for me, swerving never aside, 12 true to every command of his, every utterance of his cherished in my heart. 13 But what of that? He reigns without a rival, none can cross his purposes; he does what likes him best. 14 His will once fully accomplished in me, he has many another like purpose to fulfil. 15 What wonder if I am all adread in his presence, if the thought of him racks me with terror? 16 It is God that melts my heart with fear, his omnipotence that daunts me; 17 that thought unmans me, not the surrounding darkness, not the mists which hide my view.[1] 8
Si ad orientem iero, non apparet;
si ad occidentem, non intelligam eum.
9
Si ad sinistram, quid agam? non apprehendam eum;
si me vertam ad dexteram, non videbo illum.
10
Ipse vero scit viam meam,
et probavit me quasi aurum quod per ignem transit.
11
Vestigia ejus secutus est pes meus:
viam ejus custodivi, et non declinavi ex ea.
12
A mandatis labiorum ejus non recessi,
et in sinu meo abscondi verba oris ejus.
13
Ipse enim solus est, et nemo avertere potest cogitationem ejus:
et anima ejus quodcumque voluit, hoc fecit.
14
Cum expleverit in me voluntatem suam,
et alia multa similia præsto sunt ei.
15
Et idcirco a facie ejus turbatus sum,
et considerans eum, timore sollicitor.
16
Deus mollivit cor meum,
et Omnipotens conturbavit me.
17
Non enim perii propter imminentes tenebras,
nec faciem meam operuit caligo.
