New International Version
There the upright can establish their innocence before him, and there I would be delivered forever from my judge.

Darby Bible Translation
There would an upright man reason with him; and I should be delivered for ever from my judge.
World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
There the upright doth reason with Him, And I escape for ever from my judge.

Nothing less than the fullest conviction of his own innocence could have led Job to express himself thus to the Judge of quick and dead!
