Job 13:7-16 - Your Wisdom Misrepresents God

7 Will ye speak unrighteously for God, And talk deceitfully for him? 8 Will ye show partiality to him? Will ye contend for God? 9 Is it good that he should search you out? Or as one deceiveth a man, will ye deceive him? 10 He will surely reprove you If ye do secretly show partiality. 11 Shall not his majesty make you afraid, And his dread fall upon you? 12 Your memorable sayings are proverbs of ashes, Your defences are defences of clay.

13 Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak; And let come on me what will. 14 Wherefore should I take my flesh in my teeth, And put my life in my hand? 15 Behold, he will slay me; I have no hope: Nevertheless I will maintain my ways before him. 16 This also shall be my salvation, That a godless man shall not come before him.
