“I would declare vnto him the number of my steps, as a prince would I goe neere vnto him.”
King James Version (KJV)
34. Did I feare a great multitude, or did the contempt of families terrifie me: that I kept silence, and went not out of the doore? 35. O that one would heare me! beholde, my desire is, that the Almightie would answere me, and that mine aduersary had written a booke. 36. Surely I would take it vpon my shoulder, and bind it as a crowne to me. 37. I would declare vnto him the number of my steps, as a prince would I goe neere vnto him. 38. If my land cry against me, or that the furrowes likewise thereof complaine: 39. If I haue eaten the fruits thereof without money, or haue caused the owners thereof to loose their life: 40. Let thistles grow in stead of wheat, and cockle in stead of barley. The words of Iob are ended.
