"Suppose a man says to God, 'I am guilty1 but will offend no more.
Teach me what I cannot see;2 if I have done wrong, I will not do so again.'3
Should God then reward you on your terms, when you refuse to repent?4 You must decide, not I; so tell me what you know.
"Men of understanding declare, wise men who hear me say to me,
'Job speaks without knowledge;5 his words lack insight.'6
Oh, that Job might be tested to the utmost for answering like a wicked man!7
To his sin he adds rebellion; scornfully he claps his hands8 among us and multiplies his words9 against God."10
