18I have indeed prepared my case;
I know that I shall be vindicated.19Who is there that will contend with me?
For then I would be silent and die.Job's Despondent Prayer
20Only grant two things to me,
then I will not hide myself from your face:21withdraw your hand far from me,
and do not let dread of you terrify me.22Then call, and I will answer;
or let me speak, and you reply to me.23How many are my iniquities and my sins?
Make me know my transgression and my sin.
