Hold your peace , let me alone, that I may speak , and let come on me what will.
Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?15Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintaina mine own waysbefore him.
He also shall be my salvation: for an hypocrite shall not comebefore him.
17Heardiligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.18
Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified .
Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue , I shall give up the ghost .
Only do not two things unto me: then will I not hide myself from thee.21Withdraw thine handfar from me: and let not thy dread make me afraid .
Then call thou, and I will answer : or let me speak , and answer thou me.
How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.
