Job, Chapter 13

13:1 Look, my eye has seen all [this], My ear has heard and understood it.
13:2 What you+ know, [the same] do I know also: I am not inferior to you+.
13:3 Surely I would speak to the Almighty, And I desire to reason with God.
13:4 But you+ are forgers of lies; You+ are all physicians of no value.
13:5 Oh that you+ would altogether hold your+ peace! And it would be your+ wisdom.
13:6 Hear now my reasoning, And listen to the pleadings of my lips.
13:7 Will you+ speak unrighteously for God, And talk deceitfully for him?
13:8 Will you+ show partiality to him? Will you+ contend for God?
13:9 Is it good that he should search you+ out? Or as one deceives common man, will you+ deceive him?
13:10 He will surely reprove you+, If you+ secretly show partiality.
13:11 Will not his splendor make you+ afraid, And his dread fall on you+?
13:12 Your+ memorable sayings are proverbs of ashes, Your+ defenses are defenses of clay.
13:13 Listen+ to me silently, that I may speak; And let come upon me what will.
13:14 Why should I take my flesh in my teeth, And put my soul in my hand?
13:15 Look, he will slay me; I have no hope: Nevertheless I will maintain my ways before him.
13:16 This also will be my salvation, That a godless man will not come before him.
13:17 Hear diligently my speech, And let my declaration be in your+ ears.
13:18 Look now, I have set my cause in order; I know that I am righteous.
13:19 Who is he that will contend with me? For then I would hold my peace and give up the ghost.
13:20 Only don't do two things to me; Then I will not hide myself from your face:
13:21 Withdraw your hand far from me; And don't let your terror make me afraid.
13:22 Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, and answer me.
13:23 How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me to know my transgression and my sin.
13:24 Why do you hide your face, And hold me for your enemy?
13:25 Will you harass a driven leaf? And will you pursue the dry stubble?
13:26 For you write bitter things against me, And make me to inherit the iniquities of my youth:
13:27 You put my feet also in the stocks, And mark all my paths; You set a bound to the soles of my feet:
13:28 Though I am like a rotten thing that consumes, Like a garment that is moth-eaten.
