- I waited while you spoke, I listened to your reasoning; while you were searching for words,
- I gave you my full attention. But not one of you has proved Job wrong; none of you has answered his arguments.
- Do not say, 'We have found wisdom; let God refute him, not man.'
- But Job has not marshaled his words against me, and I will not answer him with your arguments.
- "They are dismayed and have no more to say; words have failed them.
- "Behold, I waited for your words, I listened to your reasonings, While you pondered what to say.
- "I even paid close attention to you; Indeed, there was no one who refuted Job, Not one of you who answered his words.
- "Do not say, 'We have found wisdom; God will rout him, not man.'
- "For he has not arranged his words against me, Nor will I reply to him with your arguments.
- "They are dismayed, they no longer answer; Words have failed them.
