Job Chapter 23 - American Standard Version

1
Then Job answered and said,
2
Even to-day is my complaint rebellious: My stroke is heavier than my groaning.
3
Oh that I knew where I might find him! That I might come even to his seat!
4
I would set my cause in order before him, And fill my mouth with arguments.
5
I would know the words which he would answer me, And understand what he would say unto me.
6
Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? Nay; but he would give heed unto me.
7
There the upright might reason with him; So should I be delivered for ever from my judge.
8
Behold, I go forward, but he is not [there]; And backward, but I cannot perceive him;
9
On the left hand, when he doth work, but I cannot behold him; He hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him.
10
But he knoweth the way that I take; When he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
11
My foot hath held fast to his steps; His way have I kept, and turned not aside.
12
I have not gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have treasured up the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
13
But he is in one [mind], and who can turn him? And what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.
14
For he performeth that which is appointed for me: And many such things are with him.
15
Therefore am I terrified at his presence; When I consider, I am afraid of him.
16
For God hath made my heart faint, And the Almighty hath terrified me;
17
Because I was not cut off before the darkness, Neither did he cover the thick darkness from my face.

Daily Golden Verse

2nd Chronicles 20:15-17
[20:15] and he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat: Thus saith Jehovah unto you, Fear not ye, neither be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God`s. [20:16] To-morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the ascent of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the valley, before the wilderness of Jeruel. [20:17] Ye shall not need to fight in this [battle]: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of Jehovah with you, O Judah and Jerusalem; fear not, nor be dismayed: to-morrow go out against them: for Jehovah is with you.
