And king David said to Ornan, No; but I will in any case buy them for the full money; for I will not take that which is thine for Jehovah, to offer up a burnt-offering without cost.

then may you hear their prayer and their pleas from the heavens and uphold their case.

then may you hear their prayer and their pleas from the heavens, from your dwelling place, and uphold their case and forgive your people who sinned against you.

Micaiah said, "That being the case, hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne, with all the heavenly assembly standing on his right and on his left.

"You are to carry out your duties in the fear of the LORD, serving him faithfully with your whole heart. No matter what case comes before you from your fellow citizens who live in their own cities, whether it's a dispute between blood relatives or a dispute regarding the Law and the commands, statutes, or verdicts, you are to warn the parties so that they do not become guilty in the LORD's presence and so that anger does not come upon you and your fellow citizens.

"My God, I am too ashamed and hurt to turn to you, because we're in our iniquities over our heads. Furthermore, my God, our sins have grown as high as the heavens. We have lived in great sin from the days of our ancestors even until today, and because of those iniquities we, our kings, and our priests have been delivered over to foreign kings, for execution, for captivity, for plunder, and for humiliation, as is the case today.

Then said I unto them, Ye see the evil case that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.

Should we then in your case hear that you do all this great evil, thereby being unfaithful to our God by marrying foreign wives?"

However, if I were you, I would appeal to God and would present my case to Him.

Then I would speak and not fear Him. But that is not the case; I am on my own.

But if only God would speak and declare His case against you,

Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God.

Would you show partiality to Him or argue the case in His defense?

Now then, I have prepared [my] case; I know that I am right.

If you really intend to vaunt yourselves over me, and make my problems the basis of your case against me,

"If you say, 'How shall we persecute him?' And 'What pretext for a case against him can we find?'

I would plead my case before Him and fill my mouth with arguments.

There an upright person could present his case before him, and I would be delivered forever from my judge.

If I have dismissed the case of my male or female servants when they made a complaint against me,

If only I had someone to hear my [case]! Here is my signature; let the Almighty answer me. Let my Opponent compose [His] indictment.

Refute me if you can. Prepare your case against me; take your stand.

Would I lie about my case? My wound is incurable, though I am without transgression."

how much less when you complain that you do not see Him, [that your] case is before Him and you are waiting for Him.

But now you are occupied with the case of the wicked; but justice and judgment will be served.

Teach us what we should say to Him; we cannot prepare [our case] because of our darkness.

But this is not the case with the wicked. They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
