Psalm 39:9; Job 40:4–5; Psalm 38:13

iI am mute; I do not open my mouth,

jfor it is you who have done it.


Behold, I am zof small account; what shall I answer you?

aI lay my hand on my mouth.

I have spoken bonce, and I will not answer;

btwice, but I will proceed no further.


13  But I am like a deaf man; I do not hear,

like fa mute man who does not open his mouth.
