Job’s Final Word to His Friends

1 And Job continued his discourse:
2 “As surely as God lives, who has denied me justice, the Almighty, who has made my life bitter,
3 as long as I have life within me, the breath of God in my nostrils,
4 my lips will not say anything wicked, and my tongue will not utter lies.
5 I will never admit you are in the right; till I die, I will not deny my integrity.
6 I will maintain my innocence and never let go of it; my conscience will not reproach me as long as I live.
7 “May my enemy be like the wicked, my adversary like the unjust!
