"Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me.1
"Would you discredit my justice?2 Would you condemn me to justify yourself ?3
Do you have an arm like God's,4 and can your voice5 thunder like his?6
Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor, and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.7
Unleash the fury of your wrath,8 look at every proud man and bring him low,9
look at every proud10 man and humble him,11 crush12 the wicked where they stand.
Bury them all in the dust together;13 shroud their faces in the grave.14
Then I myself will admit to you that your own right hand can save you.15
