9:3 If he will contend with him, he cannot answere him one of a thousand.  
9:4 He is wise in heart, and mightie in strength: who hath hardened himselfe against him, and hath prospered?  
9:5 Which remoueth the mountains, and they know not: which ouerturneth them in his anger:  
9:6 Which shaketh the earth out of her place, & the pillars thereof tremble:  
9:7 Which commandeth the Sunne, and it riseth not: and sealeth vp the starres.  
9:8 Which alone spreadeth out the heauens, and treadeth vpon the waues of the Sea. Margin Note

9:14 How much lesse shall I answere him, and choose out my words to reason with him?

9:16 If I had called, and had answered me, yet would I not beleeue that he had hearkened vnto my voice:  
9:17 For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.  
9:18 Hee will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitternesse.  
9:19 If I speake of strength, loe, hee is strong: and if of iudgement, who shall set me a time to pleade?  
9:20 If I iustifie my selfe, mine owne mouth shall condemne me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prooue me peruerse.

9:30 If I wash my selfe with snow water, and make my handes neuer so cleane:  
9:31 Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine owne clothes shall abhorre me. Margin Note
9:32 For he is not a man as I am, that I should answere him, and we should come together in iudgement.
