New International Version
The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress.
King James Bible
Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.
Darby Bible Translation
The Almighty, we cannot find him out: excellent in power, and in judgment, and in abundance of justice, he doth not afflict.

Does God pervert justice? Does the Almighty pervert what is right?
His wisdom is profound, his power is vast. Who has resisted him and come out unscathed?
"Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
They are higher than the heavens above--what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below--what can you know?
"Dominion and awe belong to God; he establishes order in the heights of heaven.
