If you had your way, no one would fear God; no one would pray to him.
Your wickedness is evident by what you say; you are trying to hide behind clever words.
There is no need for me to condemn you; you are condemned by every word you speak.
Do you think you were the first person born? Were you there when God made the mountains?
Did you overhear the plans God made? Does human wisdom belong to you alone?
There is nothing you know that we don't know.
We learned our wisdom from gray-haired people - those born before your father.
God offers you comfort; why still reject it? We have spoken for him with calm, even words.
But you are excited and glare at us in anger.
You are angry with God and denounce him.
Can any human being be really pure? 1 Can anyone be right with God?
