Then Satan answered the Lord, Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has will he give for his life.
When a man has a swelling on his skin, a scab, or a bright spot, and it becomes the disease of leprosy in his skin, then he shall be brought to the priest, to Aaron or one of his sons.
You have clothed me with skin and flesh and have knit me together with bones and sinews.
And I will lay sinews upon you and bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin, and I will put breath and spirit in you, and you [dry bones] shall live; and you shall know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord [the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service].
And I looked and behold, there were sinews upon [the bones] and flesh came upon them and skin covered them over, but there was no breath or spirit in them.
You who hate the good and love the evil, who pluck and steal the skin from off [My people] and their flesh from off their bones;
My flesh and my skin has He worn out and made old; He has shattered my bones.
Our skin glows and is parched as from [the heat of] an oven because of the burning heat of [the fever of] famine.
[Prolonged famine has made] them look blacker than soot and darkness; they are not recognized in the streets. Their skin clings to their bones; it is withered and it has become [dry] like a stick.
Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also can you do good who are accustomed and taught [even trained] to do evil.
