“Then Job answered.
‘Today also my complaint is bitter.
His hand is heavy,
Despite my groaning.
O that I knew where I might find him!
O that I might come even to his dwelling!
I would lay my case before him.
I would fill my mouth with arguments.
I would learn what he would answer me.
I would understand what he would say to me.
Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power?
But he would give heed to me.
There an upright man could reason with him.
I should be acquitted forever by my judge.’”
Job was still bitter. Despite all his complaints, he still wanted to find God. He wanted to meet him face to face in his house. Then he would lay out his cause with many arguments. However, he would learn and understand by listening. He believed that he, the upright man, would get a fair hearing. In the end, he would be acquitted by God, if only he could present his case.
