018:013:001
Lo,
mine eye hath seen all this,
mine ear hath heard and understood it.


018:013:002
What ye know,
the same do I know also:
I am not inferior unto you.


018:013:003
Surely I would speak to the Almighty,
and I desire to reason with God.


018:013:004
But ye are forgers of lies,
ye are all physicians of no value.


018:013:005
O that ye would altogether hold your peace!
and it should be your wisdom.


018:013:006
Hear now my reasoning,
and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.


018:013:007
Will ye speak wickedly for God?
and talk deceitfully for him?


018:013:008
Will ye accept his person?
will ye contend for God?


018:013:009
Is it good that he should search you out?
or as one man mocketh another,
do ye so mock him?


018:013:010
He will surely reprove you,
if ye do secretly accept persons.


018:013:011
Shall not his excellency make you afraid?
and his dread fall upon you?


018:013:012
Your remembrances are like unto ashes,
your bodies to bodies of clay.


018:013:013
Hold your peace,
let me alone,
that I may speak,
and let come on me what will.


018:013:014
Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth,
and put my life in mine hand?


018:013:015
Though he slay me,
yet will I trust in him:
but I will maintain mine own ways before him.


018:013:016
He also shall be my salvation:
for an hypocrite shall not come before him.


018:013:017
Hear diligently my speech,
and my declaration with your ears.


018:013:018
Behold now,
I have ordered my cause;
I know that I shall be justified.


018:013:019
Who is he that will plead with me?
for now,
if I hold my tongue,
I shall give up the ghost.


018:013:020
Only do not two things unto me:
then will I not hide myself from thee.


018:013:021
Withdraw thine hand far from me:
and let not thy dread make me afraid.


018:013:022
Then call thou,
and I will answer:
or let me speak,
and answer thou me.


018:013:023
How many are mine iniquities and sins?
make me to know my transgression and my sin.


018:013:024
Wherefore hidest thou thy face,
and holdest me for thine enemy?


018:013:025
Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro?
and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?


018:013:026
For thou writest bitter things against me,
and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.


018:013:027
Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks,
and lookest narrowly unto all my paths;
thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.


018:013:028
And he,
as a rotten thing,
consumeth,
as a garment that is moth eaten.
