"I know that you can do everything, that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
"[You asked,] 'Who is this, hiding counsel, without having knowledge?'Yes, I spoke, without understanding, of wonders far beyond me, which I didn't know.
"Please listen, and I will speak. [You said,] 'I will ask questions; and you, give me answers'-

therefore I detest [myself] and repent in dust and ashes."
