2 cWhat you know, I also know;
3 dBut I would speak to the Almighty,
and I desire to eargue my case with God.
4 As for you, fyou whitewash with lies;
gworthless physicians are you all.
5 Oh that you would hkeep silent,
7 Will you ispeak falsely for God
and speak ideceitfully for him?
Will you jplead the case for God?
9 Will it be well with you when he ksearches you out?
Or lcan you deceive him, as one deceives a man?
11 Will not his mmajesty terrify you,
12 Your maxims are proverbs of nashes;
and oput my life in my hand?
yet I will rargue my ways to his face.
17 sKeep listening to my words,
18 Behold, I have tprepared my case;
19 uWho is there who will contend with me?
then I will not vhide myself from your face:
21 wwithdraw your hand far from me,
and let not xdread of you terrify me.
22 yThen call, and I will answer;
zMake me know my transgression and my sin.
24 Why ado you hide your face
and bcount me as your enemy?
25 Will you frighten ca driven leaf
and pursue dry dchaff?
26 For you ewrite bitter things against me
and make me inherit fthe iniquities of my youth.
27 You put my feet in gthe stocks
and hwatch all my paths;
you set a limit for2 the soles of my feet.
like a garment that is jmoth-eaten.
