Come Forth as Gold

“Then Job answered and said, ‘Even to day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.  Oh that I knew where I might find Him! I might come to His seat!  I would order my cause before Him, and fill my mouth with arguments.  I would know the words He would answer me, and understand what He would say unto me.  Will He plead against me with great power? No; but He would put strength in me.
There the righteous might dispute with Him; so should I be delivered for ever from my Judge.  Behold, I go forward, but He is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive Him: on the left hand, where He doth work, but I cannot behold; He hideth Himself on the right hand, that I cannot see: but He knoweth the way that I take: He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”  Job 23:1-10  (KJB)
