"They are dismayed and have no more to say; words have failed them.1
Must I wait, now that they are silent, now that they stand there with no reply?
I too will have my say; I too will tell what I know.2
For I am full of words, and the spirit3 within me compels me;4
inside I am like bottled-up wine, like new wineskins ready to burst.5
I must speak and find relief; I must open my lips and reply.6
I will show partiality7 to no one,8 nor will I flatter any man;9
for if I were skilled in flattery, my Maker10 would soon take me away.11
