New International Version
Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you.
King James Bible
And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.
Darby Bible Translation
And enter not into judgment with thy servant; for in thy sight no man living shall be justified.
World English Bible
Don't enter into judgment with your servant, for in your sight no man living is righteous.
Young's Literal Translation
And enter not into judgment with Thy servant, For no one living is justified before Thee.

O what a relief is Jesus crucified to a soul in such circumstances!

My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.
know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified.
1 Kings 8:46
"When they sin against you--for there is no one who does not sin--and you become angry with them and give them over to their enemies, who take them captive to their own lands, far away or near;
Can a mortal be more righteous than God? Can even a strong man be more pure than his Maker?
"Indeed, I know that this is true. But how can mere mortals prove their innocence before God?
