"Then he said to me, 'Please stand beside me and kill me, for agony has seized me because my life still lingers in me.'
"Why do the wicked still live, Continue on, also become very powerful?
For as long as life is in me, And the breath of God is in my nostrils,
"Far be it from me that I should declare you right; Till I die I will not put away my integrity from me.
