"Even today my complaint1 is bitter;2 his hand is heavy in spite of my groaning.3
If only I knew where to find him; if only I could go to his dwelling!4
I would state my case5 before him and fill my mouth with arguments.#cr
I would find out what he would answer me,6 and consider what he would say.
Would he oppose me with great power?7 No, he would not press charges against me.8
There an upright man9 could present his case before him,10 and I would be delivered forever from my judge.11
