- 14 "How then can I R220 answer F85 Him, And choose my words before F86 Him? 15 "For though R221 I were right, I could not answer; F87 I would have to implore R222 the mercy of my judge. 16 "If I called and He answered me, I could not believe that He was listening to my voice. 17 "For He bruises R223 me with a tempest And multiplies my wounds without cause. 18 "He will not R224 allow me to get my breath, But saturates me with bitterness. R225 19 "If it is a matter of power, behold, R226 He is the strong one! And if it is a matter of justice, who can summon Him? F88 20 "Though R227 I am righteous, my mouth will condemn R228 me; Though I am guiltless, He will declare me guilty. 21 "I am guiltless; R229 I do not take notice of myself; I despise R230 my life.
