1Lo, all this my eye has seen; my ear has heard and perceived it. 2What you know, I also know; e Jb 12, 3; 15, 9 . I fall not short of you. 3But I would speak with the Almighty; f Jb 23, 4 . I wish to reason with God. 4You are glossing over falsehoods and offering vain remedies, every one of you! 5Oh, that you would be altogether silent! This for you would be wisdom. 6Hear now the rebuke I shall utter and listen to the reproof from my lips. 7Is it for God that you speak falsehood? Is it for him that you utter deceit? 8Is it for him that you show partiality? Do you play advocate on behalf of God? 9Will it be well when he shall search you out? Would you impose on him as one does on men? 10He will openly rebuke you if even in secret you show partiality. 11Surely will his majesty affright you and the dread of him fall upon you. 12Your reminders are ashy maxims, your fabrications are mounds of clay. 13Be silent, let me alone! that I may speak and give vent to my feelings. 14I will carry my flesh between my teeth, and take my life in my hand.* 15Slay me though he might, g Jb 27, 5 . I will wait for him; I will defend my conduct before him. 16And this shall be my salvation, that no impious man can come into his presence. 17Pay careful heed to my speech, and give my statement a hearing. 18Behold, I have prepared my case, h Jb 33, 9 . I know that I am in the right. 19If anyone can make a case against me, then I shall be silent and die. 20These things only do not use against me,* then from your presence I need not hide: 21Withdraw your hand far from me, and let not the terror of you frighten me. 22Then call me, and I will respond; or let me speak first, and answer me. 23What are my faults and my sins? My misdeeds and my sins make known to me! 24Why do you hide your face i Jb 19, 11; 33, 10 . and consider me your enemy? 25Will you harass a wind‐driven leaf, or pursue a withered straw? 26For you draw up bitter indictments against me, and punish in me the faults of my youth. 27You put my feet in the stocks; you watch all my paths and trace out all my footsteps.
