nkjv@Job:13:2 @ What you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you.
nkjv@Job:13:3 @ But I would speak to the Almighty, And I desire to reason with God.
nkjv@Job:13:4 @ But you forgers of lies, You are all worthless physicians.
nkjv@Job:13:5 @ Oh, that you would be silent, And it would be your wisdom!
nkjv@Job:13:6 @ Now hear my reasoning, And heed the pleadings of my lips.
nkjv@Job:13:7 @ Will you speak wickedly for God, And talk deceitfully for Him?
nkjv@Job:13:8 @ Will you show partiality for Him? Will you contend for God?
nkjv@Job:13:9 @ Will it be well when He searches you out? Or can you mock Him as one mocks a man?
nkjv@Job:13:10 @ He will surely rebuke you If you secretly show partiality.
nkjv@Job:13:11 @ Will not His excellence make you afraid, And the dread of Him fall upon you?
nkjv@Job:13:12 @ Your platitudes are proverbs of ashes, Your defenses are defenses of clay.
nkjv@Job:13:13 @ "Hold your peace with me, and let me speak, Then let come on me what may!
nkjv@Job:13:14 @ Why do I take my flesh in my teeth, And put my life in my hands?
nkjv@Job:13:15 @ Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.
nkjv@Job:13:16 @ He also shall be my salvation, For a hypocrite could not come before Him.
nkjv@Job:13:17 @ Listen carefully to my speech, And to my declaration with your ears.
nkjv@Job:13:18 @ See now, I have prepared my case, I know that I shall be vindicated.
nkjv@Job:13:19 @ Who is he who will contend with me? If now I hold my tongue, I perish.
nkjv@Job:13:20 @ "Only two things do not do to me, Then I will not hide myself from You:
nkjv@Job:13:21 @ Withdraw Your hand far from me, And let not the dread of You make me afraid.
nkjv@Job:13:22 @ Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, then You respond to me.
nkjv@Job:13:23 @ How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me know my transgression and my sin.
nkjv@Job:13:24 @ Why do You hide Your face, And regard me as Your enemy?
nkjv@Job:13:25 @ Will You frighten a leaf driven to and fro? And will You pursue dry stubble?
nkjv@Job:13:26 @ For You write bitter things against me, And make me inherit the iniquities of my youth.
nkjv@Job:13:27 @ You put my feet in the stocks, And watch closely all my paths. You set a limit for the soles of my feet.
nkjv@Job:13:28 @ "Man decays like a rotten thing, Like a garment that is moth-eaten.
