Job 9:2; Job 9:15; Psalm 130:3; Psalm 143:2; 1 John 3:21

Truly I know that it is so:

But how can a man be zin the right before God?

15  rThough I am in the right, I cannot answer him;

I must sappeal for mercy to my accuser.1

If you, O Lord, should fmark iniquities,

O Lord, who could gstand?

eEnter not into judgment with your servant,

for no one living is righteous fbefore you.

21 Beloved, kif our heart does not condemn us, lwe have confidence before God;
