THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

33:14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

33:15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

33:16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

33:17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

33:18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

33:19He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

33:20So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.

33:21His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

33:22Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

33:23If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:

33:24Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

33:25His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:

33:26He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

33:27He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

33:28He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

33:29Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

33:30To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.
