For even if I were right, I could not answer. I could only beg my Judge for mercy.
Cross ReferencesJob 8:5
But if you would earnestly seek God and ask the Almighty for mercy,
If I summoned Him and He answered me, I do not believe He would listen to my voice.
Even if I were righteous, my mouth would condemn me; if I were blameless, it would declare me guilty.
Though I am blameless, I have no concern for myself; I despise my life.
If I am guilty, woe to me! And even if I am righteous, I cannot lift my head. I am full of shame and aware of my affliction.
I have spoken once, but I have no answer--twice, but I have nothing to add."
Chapter Outline1. Job acknowledges God's justice
