13 Lo, mine eye hath seen all this,

Mine ear hath heard and understood it.

What ye know, the same do I know also:

aI am not inferior unto you.

bSurely I would speak to the Almighty,

And I desire to creason with God.

But ye are dforgers of lies,

eYe are all physicians fof no value.

O that ye would altogether ghold your peace!

And it should be your wisdom.

Hear now my hreasoning,

And hearken to the pleadings of my lips.

Will ye speak iwickedly for God?

And talk ideceitfully for him?

Will ye kaccept his person?

Will ye lcontend for God?

mIs it good that he should nsearch you out?

Or as one man omocketh another, do ye so mock him?

10  He will surely creprove you,

If ye do secretly kaccept persons.

11  Shall not his pexcellency make you afraid?

And his dread fall upon you?

12  Your qremembrances are rlike unto sashes,

Your bodies to bodies of clay.

13  Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak,

And let tcome on me uwhat will.

14  Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth,

And xput my life in mine hand?

15  yThough he slay me, yet will I ztrust in him:

But I will maintain mine own ways abefore him.

16  He also shall be my salvation:

For an hypocrite shall not come before him.

17  aaHear diligently my speech,

And my bdeclaration with your ears.

18  Behold now, I have cordered my cause;

I know that I shall be justified.

19  dWho is he that will plead with me?

For now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.

20  Only do not two things unto me:

Then ewill I not hide myself from thee.

21  fWithdraw thine hand far from me:

And flet not thy dread make me afraid.

22  gThen call thou, and I will answer:

Or let me speak, and hanswer thou me.

23  How many are mine iniquities and sins?

Make ime to know my transgression and my sin.

24  jWherefore hidest thou thy face,

And kholdest me for thine enemy?

25  Wilt thou break la leaf driven to and fro?

And wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?

26  For thou mwritest bitter things against me,

And makest me to possess nthe iniquities of my youth.

27  oThou puttest my feet also in the stocks,

And lookest narrowly unto all my paths;

Thou psettest a print upon the heels of my feet.

28  And he, as a qrotten thing, consumeth,

As a garment that is rmoth eaten.
