If it is a matter of strength, he is mighty! And if it is a matter of justice, who can challenge him?
King James Bible
If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong: and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead?
American Standard Version
If we speak of strength, lo, he is mighty! And if of justice, Who,'saith he , will summon me?
Young's Literal Translation
If of power, lo, the Strong One; And if of judgment -- who doth convene me?
Job 9:19 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong - Human wisdom, power, and influence avail nothing before him.
Who shall set me a time - מי יועידני mi yoideni, "Who would be a witness for me?" or, Who would dare to appear in my behalf? Almost all the terms in this part of the speech of Job, Job 9:11-24, are forensic or juridical, and are taken from legal processes and pleadings in their gates or courts of justice.
