For the ear tests words as the tongue tastes food.
Let us discern for ourselves what is right; let us learn together what is good.
“Job says, ‘I am innocent, but God denies me justice.
Although I am right, I am considered a liar; although I am guiltless, his arrow inflicts an incurable wound.’
Is there anyone like Job, who drinks scorn like water?
He keeps company with evildoers; he associates with the wicked.
For he says, ‘There is no profit in trying to please God.’
