Job 42:1-6

1 Then Job answered the Lord:

2 “I know that you can do all things,
   and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
3 ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’
Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,
   things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
4 ‘Hear, and I will speak;
   I will question you, and you declare to me.’
5 I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,
   but now my eye sees you;
6 therefore I despise myself,
   and repent in dust and ashes.”
