Do you say, ‘It is my right before God,’
How am I better off than if I had sinned?’
and your friends with you.
and behold the clouds, which are higher than you.
And if your transgressions are multiplied, what do you do to him?
or what does he receive from your hand?
and your righteousness a son of man.
they call for help because of the arm of the mighty.
who gives songs in the night,
and makes us wiser than the birds of the air?’
because of the pride of evil men.
nor does the Almighty regard it.
that the case is before him, and you are waiting for him!
and he does not greatly heed transgression,a
he multiplies words without knowledge.”
