For though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses.
For he does not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men.
To crush under foot all the prisoners of the earth,
To turn aside the right of a man before the face of the Most High,
To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord doesn't approve.
Who is he who says, and it comes to pass, when the Lord doesn't command it?
Doesn't evil and good come out of the mouth of the Most High?
Why does a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?
Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to Yahweh.
Let us lift up our heart with our hands to God in the heavens.
We have transgressed and have rebelled; you have not pardoned.
