Job 10:8 Parallel

And fashioned me together round about - All my powers and faculties have been planned and executed by thyself.

It is all the same; that is why I say, 'He destroys both the blameless and the wicked.'
Does it please you to oppress me, to spurn the work of your hands, while you smile on the plans of the wicked?
Can anyone bring charges against me? If so, I will be silent and die.
I know you will bring me down to death, to the place appointed for all the living.

Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
