then let my shoulder be wrenched out of place! Let my arm be torn from its socket!
That would be better than facing God’s judgment. For if the majesty of God opposes me, what hope is there?
“Have I put my trust in money or felt secure because of my gold?
Have I gloated about my wealth and all that I own?
“Have I looked at the sun shining in the skies, or the moon walking down its silver pathway,
and been secretly enticed in my heart to throw kisses at them in worship?
If so, I should be punished by the judges, for it would mean I had denied the God of heaven.
“Have I ever rejoiced when disaster struck my enemies, or become excited when harm came their way?
No, I have never sinned by cursing anyone or by asking for revenge.
“My servants have never said, ‘He let others go hungry.’
I have never turned away a stranger but have opened my doors to everyone.
