And the Lord said to Job:
"Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty? a Anyone who argues with God must respond."
Then Job answered the Lord:
"See, I am of small account; what shall I answer you? I lay my hand on my mouth.
I have spoken once, and I will not answer; twice, but will proceed no further."
Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind:
"Gird up your loins like a man; I will question you, and you declare to me.
Will you even put me in the wrong? Will you condemn me that you may be justified?
