Job 13:14-16 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

14 Why do I put myself at risk[a]
and take my life in my own hands?
15 Even if He kills me, I will hope in Him.[b]
I will still defend my ways before Him.
16 Yes, this will result in my deliverance,
for no godless person can appear before Him.


  1. Job 13:14 Lit I take my flesh in my teeth
  2. Job 13:15 Some Hb mss read I will be without hope

Job 13:14-16 New International Version (NIV)

14 Why do I put myself in jeopardy
    and take my life in my hands?
15 Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him;
    I will surely[a] defend my ways to his face.
16 Indeed, this will turn out for my deliverance,
    for no godless person would dare come before him!
