Job 23:6-8 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Would he [a]plead against me with his great power? No, but he would [b]put strength in me.

[c]There the righteous might reason with him, so I should be delivered forever from my Judge.

[d]Behold, if I go to the East, he is not there: if to the West, yet I cannot perceive him:


  1. Job 23:6 Using his absolute power, and saying, because I am God, I may do what I will.
  2. Job 23:6 Of his mercy he would give me power to answer him.
  3. Job 23:7 When he of his mercy hath given strength to maintain their cause.
  4. Job 23:8 Meaning, that if he consider God’s justice, he is not able to comprehend his judgments on what side or what part soever he turneth himself.

Job 23:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

Would he vigorously oppose me?
    No, he would not press charges against me.
There the upright can establish their innocence before him,
    and there I would be delivered forever from my judge.

“But if I go to the east, he is not there;
    if I go to the west, I do not find him.
