Chapter 13

JOB.13:1 “Behold, my eye has seen all this, My ear has heard and understood it.
JOB.13:2 What you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you.
JOB.13:3 But I would speak to the Almighty, And I desire to reason with God.
JOB.13:4 But you forgers of lies, You are all worthless physicians.
JOB.13:5 Oh, that you would be silent, And it would be your wisdom!
JOB.13:6 Now hear my reasoning, And heed the pleadings of my lips.
JOB.13:7 Will you speak wickedly for God, And talk deceitfully for Him?
JOB.13:8 Will you show partiality for Him? Will you contend for God?
JOB.13:9 Will it be well when He searches you out? Or can you mock Him as one mocks a man?
JOB.13:10 He will surely rebuke you If you secretly show partiality.
JOB.13:11 Will not His excellence make you afraid, And the dread of Him fall upon you?
JOB.13:12 Your platitudes are proverbs of ashes, Your defenses are defenses of clay.
JOB.13:13 “Hold your peace with me, and let me speak, Then let come on me what may!
JOB.13:14 Why do I take my flesh in my teeth, And put my life in my hands?
JOB.13:15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.
JOB.13:16 He also shall be my salvation, For a hypocrite could not come before Him.
JOB.13:17 Listen carefully to my speech, And to my declaration with your ears.
JOB.13:18 See now, I have prepared my case, I know that I shall be vindicated.
JOB.13:19 Who is he who will contend with me? If now I hold my tongue, I perish.
JOB.13:20 “Only two things do not do to me, Then I will not hide myself from You:
JOB.13:21 Withdraw Your hand far from me, And let not the dread of You make me afraid.
JOB.13:22 Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, then You respond to me.
JOB.13:23 How many are my iniquities and sins? Make me know my transgression and my sin.
JOB.13:24 Why do You hide Your face, And regard me as Your enemy?
JOB.13:25 Will You frighten a leaf driven to and fro? And will You pursue dry stubble?
JOB.13:26 For You write bitter things against me, And make me inherit the iniquities of my youth.
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.
JOB.13:28 “Man decays like a rotten thing, Like a garment that is moth-eaten.
