2 For what is the ballotment of God from above,
And the inheritance of the Almighty from on high?
And disaster for the workers of iniquity?
4 cDoes He not see my ways,
And count all my steps?
Or if my foot has hastened to deceit,
6 2Let me be weighed on honest scales,
That God may know my dintegrity.
Or emy heart walked after my eyes,
Or if any spot adheres to my hands,
8 Then flet me sow, and another eat;
Yes, let my harvest be 3rooted out.
Or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door,
10 Then let my wife grind for ganother,
And let others bow down over her.
Yes, hit would be iniquity deserving of judgment.
And would root out all my increase.
13 “If I have idespised the cause of my male or female servant
When they complained against me,
14 What then shall I do when jGod rises up?
When He punishes, how shall I answer Him?
15 kDid not He who made me in the womb make them?
Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?
Or caused the eyes of the widow to lfail,
So that the fatherless could not eat of it
And from my mother’s womb I guided 4the widow);
Or any poor man without covering;
And if he was not warmed with the fleece of my sheep;
21 If I have raised my hand nagainst the fatherless,
When I saw I had help in the gate;
Let my arm be torn from the socket.
23 For odestruction from God is a terror to me,
And because of His magnificence I cannot endure.
