See,H2005 my eyeH5869 has seenH7200 allH3605 this, my earH241 has heardH8085 and understoodH995 it.
What you know,H1847 the same do I knowH3045 also:H1571 I am not inferiorH5307 to you.
SurelyH199 I would speakH1696 to the Almighty,H7706 and I desireH2654 to reasonH3198 with God.H410
But you are forgersH2950 of lies,H8267 you are allH3605 physiciansH7495 of noH457 value.H457
O that you would altogether holdH2790 your peace!H2790 and it should be your wisdom.H2451
HearH8085 nowH4994 my reasoning,H8433 and listenH7181 to the pleadingsH7379 of my lips.H8193
Will you speakH1696 wickedlyH5766 for God?H410 and talkH1696 deceitfullyH7423 for him?
Will you acceptH5375 his person?H6440 will you contendH7378 for God?H410
Is it goodH2896 that he should searchH2713 you out? or as one manH582 mocksH2048 another, do you so mockH2048 him?
He will surely reproveH3198 you, ifH518 you do secretlyH5643 acceptH5375 persons.H6440
Shall not his excellencyH7613 make you afraid?H1204 and his dreadH6343 fallH5307 on you?
Your remembrancesH2146 are likeH4911 to ashes,H665 your bodiesH1354 to bodiesH1354 of clay.H2563
HoldH2790 your peace,H2790 let me alone, that I may speak,H1696 and let comeH5674 on me whatH4100 will.
WhyH5921 H4100 do I takeH5375 my fleshH1320 in my teeth,H8127 and putH7760 my lifeH5315 in my hand?H3709
Though he slayH6991 me, yet will I trustH3176 in him: but I will maintainH3198 my own waysH1870 beforeH413 H6440 him.
He alsoH1571 shall be my salvation:H3444 for an hypocriteH2611 shall not comeH935 beforeH6440 him.
HearH8085 diligently my speech,H4405 and my declarationH262 with your ears.H241
BeholdH2009 now,H4994 I have orderedH6186 my cause;H4941 I knowH3045 that I shall be justified.H6663
WhoH4310 is he that will pleadH7378 with me? for now,H6258 ifH3588 I holdH2790 my tongue,H2790 I shall giveH1478 up the ghost.H1478
OnlyH389 doH6213 not twoH8147 things to me: thenH227 will I not hideH5641 myself from you.
WithdrawH7368 your handH3709 farH7350 from me: and let not your dreadH367 make me afraid.H1204
Then callH7121 you, and I will answer:H6030 orH176 let me speak,H1696 and answerH7725 you me.
HowH4100 many are my iniquitiesH5771 and sins?H2403 make me to knowH3045 my transgressionH6588 and my sin.H2403
WhyH4100 hideH5641 you your face,H6440 and holdH2803 me for your enemy?H341
Will you breakH6206 a leafH5929 drivenH5086 to and fro? and will you pursueH7291 the dryH3002 stubble?H7179
For you writeH3789 bitterH4846 things againstH5921 me, and make me to possessH3423 the iniquitiesH5771 of my youth.H5271
You putH7760 my feetH7272 also in the stocks,H5465 and lookH8104 narrowlyH8104 to allH3605 my paths;H734 you set a printH2707 on the heelsH8328 of my feet.H7272
And he, as a rottenH7538 thing, consumes,H1086 as a garmentH899 that is mothH6211 eaten.H398
