Job 42:6
Context
Job Submits Himself to God

1Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 2I know that you can do every thing, and that no thought can be withheld from you. 3Who is he that hides counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. 4Hear, I beseech you, and I will speak: I will demand of you, and declare you to me. 5I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear: but now my eye sees you. 6Why I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
