JOB 13Job Continues: Still I Will Hope in God13:1 “Behold, my eye has seen all this,my ear has heard and understood it. 2 What you know, I also know;I am not inferior to you. 3 But I would speak to the Almighty,and I desire to argue my case with God. 4 As for you, you whitewash with lies;worthless physicians are you all. 5 Oh that you would keep silent,and it would be your wisdom! 6 Hear now my argumentand listen to the pleadings of my lips. 7 Will you speak falsely for Godand speak deceitfully for him? 8 Will you show partiality toward him?Will you plead the case for God? 9 Will it be well with you when he searches you out?Or can you deceive him, as one deceives a man? 10 He will surely rebuke youif in secret you show partiality. 11 Will not his majesty terrify you,and the dread of him fall upon you? 12 Your maxims are proverbs of ashes;your defenses are defenses of clay.
