Job 34:31-33

31-33"So why don't you simply confess to God?

Say, 'I sinned, but I'll sin no more.

Teach me to see what I still don't see.

Whatever evil I've done, I'll do it no more.'

Just because you refuse to live on God's terms,

do you think he should start living on yours?

You choose. I can't do it for you.

Tell me what you decide.

34-37"All right-thinking people say—

and the wise who have listened to me concur—

'Job is an ignoramus.

He talks utter nonsense.'

Job, you need to be pushed to the wall and called to account

for wickedly talking back to God the way you have.

You've compounded your original sin

by rebelling against God's discipline,

Defiantly shaking your fist at God,

piling up indictments against the Almighty One."
