1See, my eye has seen all this; my ear has heard and understood it.
2What you know, the same I also know; I am not inferior to you.
3However, I would rather speak with the Almighty; I wish to reason with God.
4But you whitewash the truth with lies; you are all physicians of no value.
5Oh, that you would altogether hold your peace! That would be your wisdom.
6Hear now my own reasoning; listen to the pleading of my own lips.
7Will you speak unrighteously for God, and will you talk deceitfully for him?
8Will you show him partiality? Will you argue the case for God?
9Will it be good for you when he searches you out? Could you deceive him as you might deceive men?
10He would surely reprove you if in secret you showed partiality.
11Will not his majesty terrify you, and the dread of him fall upon you?
12Your memorable sayings are proverbs made of ashes; your defenses are defenses made of clay.
13Hold your peace, let me alone, so that I may speak, let come what may on me.
14I will take my own flesh in my teeth; I will take my life in my hands.
15See, if he kills me, I will have no hope left; nevertheless, I will defend my ways before him.
16This will be the reason for my deliverance, for no godless person would come before him.
17God, listen carefully to my speech; let my declaration come to your ears.
18See now, I have set my defense in order; I know that I am innocent.

19Who is the one who would argue against me in court? If you came to do so, and if I were proved wrong, then I would be silent and give up my life.
20God, do only two things for me, and then I will not hide myself from your face:
21withdraw your oppressive hand from me, and do not let your terrors make me afraid.
22Then call me, and I will answer; or let me speak to you, and you answer me.
23How many are my iniquities and sins? Let me know my transgression and my sin.
24Why do you hide your face from me and treat me like your enemy?
25Will you persecute a driven leaf? Will you pursue dry stubble?
26For you write down bitter things against me; you make me inherit the iniquities of my youth.
27You also put my feet in the stocks; you closely watch all my paths; you examine the ground where the soles of my feet have walked
28although I am like a rotten thing that wastes away, like a garment that moths have eaten.
