You say to God, 'My beliefs are flawless and I am pure in your sight.'
King James Bible
For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.
Darby Bible Translation

For you say, 'My doctrine is pure. I am clean in your eyes.'

Then I would still have this consolation-- my joy in unrelenting pain-- that I had not denied the words of the Holy One.
though you know that I am not guilty and that no one can rescue me from your hand?
Oh, how I wish that God would speak, that he would open his lips against you
I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching.
