And the LORD said to Job:
"Shall a faultfinder contend with the Almighty? He who argues with God, let him answer it."
Then Job answered the LORD:
"Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer thee? I lay my hand on my mouth.
I have spoken once, and I will not answer; twice, but I 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.
