Tao Bible - Job 16:11

God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.
~ King James version ~

When our lives are marked by pain and suffering, it is not due to Tao.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
Job laments that, though he is a good man, God has turned his back on him.

Tao never turns away from us. When we go looking, Tao is always there. Being beyond good and evil, Tao does not reward nor sanction us. When we suffer, it is only because we follow a path not in step with the Way.
