Job 9:28-35

NRS 28 I become afraid of all my suffering, for I know you will not hold me innocent. NIV 28 I still dread all my sufferings, for I know you will not hold me innocent. NRS 29 I shall be condemned; why then do I labor in vain? NIV 29 Since I am already found guilty, why should I struggle in vain? NRS 30 If I wash myself with soap and cleanse my hands with lye, NIV 30 Even if I washed myself with soap and my hands with washing soda, NRS 31 yet you will plunge me into filth, and my own clothes will abhor me. NIV 31 you would plunge me into a slime pit so that even my clothes would detest me. NRS 32 For he is not a mortal, as I am, that I might answer him, that we should come to trial together. NIV 32 "He is not a man like me that I might answer him, that we might confront each other in court. NRS 33 There is no umpire between us, who might lay his hand on us both. NIV 33 If only there were someone to arbitrate between us, to lay his hand upon us both, NRS 34 If he would take his rod away from me, and not let dread of him terrify me, NIV 34 someone to remove God's rod from me, so that his terror would frighten me no more. NRS 35 then I would speak without fear of him, for I know I am not what I am thought to be. NIV 35 Then I would speak up without fear of him, but as it now stands with me, I cannot.
