Where is athe bill of your mother’s divorcement, whom I have put away?
And for your transgressions is your mother put away.
fWhen I called, was there none to answer?
gIs my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem?
Or have I no power to deliver?
kI make the rivers a wilderness:
lTheir fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.
3 mI clothe the heavens with blackness,
And nI make sackcloth their covering.
He wakeneth smorning by morning,
He wakeneth mine ear to hear as pthe learned.
5 The Lord God thath opened mine ear,
And uI was not rebellious,
Neither vturned away back.
6 I wgave my back to the smiters,
Therefore shall I not be confounded:
And dI know that I shall not be ashamed.
8 eHe is near that justifieth me;
fWho will contend with me? let us stand together:
Who is †mine adversary? let him come near to me.
Who is he that shall condemn me?
That obeyeth the voice of his servant,
kThat walketh in darkness, and hath no light?
Let him trust in the name of the Lord,
And lstay upon his God.
11 Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with msparks:
pThis shall ye have of mine hand;
Ye shall lie down qin sorrow.
