"How then can I answer Him, And choose my words before Him?
"You also open Your eyes on him And bring him into judgment with Yourself.
"Indeed, you do away with reverence And hinder meditation before God.
How much less one who is detestable and corrupt, Man, who drinks iniquity like water !
"Even if I have truly erred, My error lodges with me.
How much less man, that maggot, And the son of man, that worm !"
"So I say, 'Listen to me, I too will tell what I think.'
"I too will answer my share, I also will tell my opinion.
"Surely , God will not act wickedly, And the Almighty will not pervert justice.
"How much less when you say you do not behold Him, The case is before Him, and you must wait for Him!
"Then indeed, He enticed you from the mouth of distress, Instead of it, a broad place with no constraint ; And that which was set on your table was full of fatness.
"Its noise declares His presence ; The cattle also, concerning what is coming up.
"At this also my heart trembles, And leaps from its place.
"Also with moisture He loads the thick cloud ; He disperses the cloud of His lightning.
"Will you really annul My judgment ? Will you condemn Me that you may be justified ?
