Job: What Can I Say?1 Then the Lord said to Job, 2 “Will the faultfinder a contend with the Almighty?
Let him who b reproves God answer it.”
3 Then Job answered the Lord and said, 4 “Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You?
I c lay my hand on my mouth.
5 “Once I have spoken, and d I will not answer;
Even twice, and I will add nothing more.”
